Credit Research Analyst, Investment Grade
Are you a motivated and performance-driven professional looking to build a career in investment management? Do you want to develop your credit research skills as part of a team of experienced investors with a strong record of performance? This a great opportunity for a Junior Investment Analyst to contribute to the growth and success of our organisation.
Your impact as Junior Investment Analyst at NN Investment Partners
As a credit analyst in the European Investment Grade Credit team you will be responsible for providing insightful sector research and high-quality company analysis, including financial modelling, the integration of Environment, Social and Governance factors, and assignment of internal ratings.
You will use this research as the basis for determining the appropriate relative valuation for issuers in your sectors and, ultimately, for generating investment ideas and recommendations. The initial focus of the role will be the REITS industry (other sectors will subsequently be added to the coverage).
In addition to this, you will be expected to develop and maintain strong relationships with the senior management of companies under coverage and, within NN Investment Partners, other teams covering the same industries. You will also work closely with the specialists within the organisation focused of Responsible Investing and Innovation.

- Completion of a relevant degree, preferably combined with a CFA (or progress towards)
- Strong communication skills, including written and verbal fluency in English
