Senior Distressed Credit Analyst



New York, NY, USA
Posted on Thursday, October 5, 2023

9fin is looking for an experienced credit analyst to help expand coverage of the US distressed debt market.

If you’re a dynamic, focused, and collaborative person who can produce market-moving content and inspire others to do the same, we want to work with you!

About 9fin

Debt is the world's largest asset class, and it operates with the worst technology: trillions of dollars of trades are placed over the phone, news is slow, and information is scattered.

Our mission is to change this. 9fin's proprietary technology delivers fast and comprehensive news, data, and analysis on all aspects of corporate debt, from company financials through to credit analysis, legal documentation and ESG.

We enable our clients to make faster and better-informed decisions, helping them win more business — and most importantly, save time. Our fast-growing list of clients includes 9 of the top 10 investment banks, as well as leading asset managers, hedge funds and law firms.

What you'll work on

Every day is different, but here’s an example of the kind of things you’ll work on:

  • Analysis — You’ll produce detailed reports on distressed companies, distilling complex ideas into actionable content to help our clients get their heads around opportunities in the market
  • Training and development — You’ll help us build out the distressed analyst team, and use your skills and knowledge to help train less experienced colleagues
  • Build relationships and be a product ambassador — You’ll interact directly with clients, sharing your expertise and understanding their needs to help develop 9fin products
  • Monitoring markets — You’ll learn to harness our technology to identify new situations for us to cover, ensuring 9fin’s coverage of the distressed market is timely and comprehensive

This role will be a great fit if you are:

  • Experienced — 5+ years experience in high yield or leveraged finance markets. This may be via sell-side, buy-side or third-party research firms
  • A strong communicator — Demonstrate clear and effective written and verbal communication, producing clean, timely, and accurate copy in a concise manner, with unwavering attention to detail
  • A problem solver — Enjoy interpreting information and constructing effective solutions to complex problems. Be a team player, but also able to effectively work alone (and willing to seek help when it’s needed)
  • Driven — Bring an inquisitive and passionate mindset, demonstrating a strong interest in the development and dynamics of capital markets. A self-starter, you should be up for the challenge of a role that will morph and transform as we continue to grow

We’re a scaling start up and we enjoy sharing our success, when the company succeeds, we always reinvest that in our people. We also offer huge amounts of responsibility, an abundance of opportunity for growth and a platform to truly excel.
