Credit Strategy Placement 2022
The intern will be working directly with the Credit Strategist and will have a varied workload. The main responsibilities will lie with helping with research publications. On the strategy side these include daily, monthly and year-end publications. Some of the assistance will be in the form of written research but the intern will be expected to take control of data management. We have several data sources: these include Bloomberg, CreditLab (our internal spread database), Dealogic, DTCC, rating agencies and the internet. The focus will be on keeping the data current so it can be used in presentations and publications with ease, with a long-term goal of automating as much of the data processes as possible. Another target will be to build and maintain a CDS database from DTCC data. In addition there will be some adhoc projects where we will look to build some statistical/quantitative models where needed.

Special Role Requirements
