The Global Fixed Income Financing trading desk provides secured financing to institutional clients across a wide range of products including G10 Sovereigns, Supranational bonds, Covered bonds, Corporate Credit Bonds, Emerging Market Bonds, Securitized Products and residential mortgage loans. The group’s primary function is to provide leverage to a well-established client franchise by lending cash or securities – either through a repurchase agreement or margin lending agreement. Our client base consists of large hedge funds, asset managers, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, securities lenders, insurance companies, and banks. We work closely with other capital market businesses, both primary and secondary, as well as, the firm’s treasury and liquidity management teams. Both the global and America’s businesses have been consistently ranked within the Top 3 amongst our competitors.
The global desks have both “flow-based” trading, with ability to multi-task and respond to client inquiries in a short amount of time as well as elements which are more analytically intensive, with a focus on credit risk and asset structures. The desk plays a critical role in enabling Hedge funds and other asset managers to employ levered strategies, short the market, and cash management.
As an analyst, you will gain experience in understanding different funding markets and how hedge funds employ leverage to enhance their returns. Given the broad range of asset classes we cover, you will also have opportunity to gain expertise in the individual asset classes.
