AVP-Analyst / VPSA Insurance

Standort: Frankfurt am Main, Hessen, Deutschland

The Role / Responsibilities:

Few opportunities arise that provide the combination of flexibility, responsibility and discretion in running your own insurance portfolio, with the level of access to senior management in issuers and investors that you find as a Credit Analyst (Level: AVP/VPSA) at Moody's. We are seeking a motivated, ambitious individual to join our team in Frankfurt (preferred location, German language fluency essential) or Paris.
Operating across Europe, you will have immediate exposure, visibility and impact, whilst working on real cases where the application of your skills and expertise have an impact in financial markets. The ideal candidates will be a recognized subject matter expert in insurance.
Analysts at Moody's develop in-depth sector and company knowledge and are directly responsible for developing and raising the profile of the team externally through thought-leading research, participation in conferences and boardroom interaction with issuers and investors.
Moody's flat hierarchy ensures that Analyst's roles are broad and deep. When you combine that breadth and scope with the collegiate atmosphere, international environment with the high quality of talent in the business, it is a truly rewarding working experience that will stretch your abilities and challenge your talents.
As a global company, Moody's provides an excellent personal and career development platform to grow your career and develop your analytical expertise across geographies, businesses and sectors. As an organisation that values experience, there is a vast resource of knowledge within the business that can support your learning objectives, in parallel to the structured learning and development process.

Key Responsibilities:

Insightful and rigorous analysis. Write in-depth, high quality and focused research on insurance credit trends, including issuer-specific credit opinions as well as special comments and short articles on insurance topics
Ratings accuracy. Perform and present at committees in-depth fundamental credit analysis on a portfolio of European insurers
Effective communication with financial markets and issuers. Build and maintain high quality relationships with fixed-income investors, financial media and senior management at some of the world's largest insurers
Enhance insurance franchise in German speaking countries. Operate independently but supported by the rest of the European insurance team in enhancing Moody's insurance franchise. In our preferred Frankfurt location, this would entail a particularly focus on German speaking countries.
