UBS Financial Services Credit Strategist in London, United Kingdom

Your role:

Do you love to give advice, as well as educate? We’re looking for someone like that who can join us as a Credit Strategist, based in London.

• You would have solid experience in Credit economics and strategy.

• The strategist would be the go-to person for EMEA credit but will also have the opportunity to establish a more global role though participating and leading broader global thematic pieces.

• This is a senior, client facing, and publishing role.

• You will be offered tremendous opportunities for being rewarded very competitively, exposure to a most exciting and diverse global client base, and working with highly rated colleagues, who are focused on strengthening an already robust franchise.

• The final assessment of a successful strategist is being well regarded with external clients, which, for UBS Investment Bank, are the world's biggest real money managers, hedge funds, private wealth managers, central banks and sovereign wealth funds.

What we offer:

Together. That’s how we do things. We offer people around the world a supportive, challenging and diverse working environment. We value your passion and commitment, and reward your performance.

Keen to achieve the work-life agility that you desire? We're open to discussing how this could work for you (and us).

Take the next step:

Are you truly collaborative? Succeeding at UBS means respecting, understanding and trusting colleagues and clients. Challenging others and being challenged in return. Being passionate about what you do. Driving yourself forward, always wanting to do things the right way. Does that sound like you? Then you have the right stuff to join us. Apply now.

Your experience and skills:

You have:

• Strong academic pedigree with a solid and growing investor following, as reflected in surveys and broker reviews.

• Ability to write well and frequently without an editor is a minimum requirement, as is comfort with econometric modelling and spreadsheets.

• Knowledge of statistical and econometric techniques is a must, and proficiency in the use of relevant software languages is an advantage.

• A natural intellectual curiosity and stamina to keep ahead of varied, large and quickly changing markets across the region will help the candidate make the most of this attractive growth opportunity.
