Working as a credit analyst

Credit analysts possess a versatile skill set which leads to career opportunities in a range of areas, including corporate banking, asset management, aircraft leasing and insurance. 

The role of a credit analyst is to assess a prospective borrower's ability to service a debt and involves in-depth analysis of a company's financials, business performance versus sector peers and other macro factors. A credit analyst will typically sit as part of a team, supporting a portfolio or relationship manager, working on new transactions as well as monitoring the performance of existing loans.

Necessary experience and qualifications

Employers have a preference for individuals who are undertaking a professional qualification; an accounting qualification is desirable for roles in corporate banking with the CFA seen as a requirement for asset management. Strong modelling skills are also attractive to employers in all areas. Excellent communication skills (verbal and written) are important as a credit analyst will deal with clients as well as present cases to credit or investment committees.
