This is a newly created role responsible for establishing and improving procedures to analyse the financial strength of counterparties to property transactions. The role will look to establish a thorough due diligence process which will cover all aspects of covenant strength analysis. This will then require effective communication and implementation within the current Finance team responsible for credit analysis. The role will also work with the Asset team (property managers and surveyors) and other stakeholders within the business.
- Developing and streamlining a complete and thorough process for analysing the financial strength of counterparties to property transactions as part of the due diligence on new lettings, assignments, property acquisitions, construction contract agreements etc.
- This financial analysis will require a critical appraisal of the underlying transaction with value being added by identifying and highlighting opportunities to mitigate risk.
- Identifying market tools and resources to aid in the assessment of counterparty risk, covering large listed multinational to small limited companies and individuals.
- Producing written reports for inclusion in Investment Committee submissions, setting out Finance view on the strengths/weaknesses of counterparties.
A significant part of the role is to check the covenant strength of individuals and smaller companies with limited financial information, and the other part is to assess the strength of large companies. This requires 2 very different skill sets and experiences. Among other things, the former requires knowledge around credit reference agencies such as Experian, whereas the latter requires an excellent ability to analyse accounts and other information in the public domain. The candiate will have experince with both facets. In addition you will have 5+ years’ + experience in a credit analyst role combined with an Accountancy qualification.
