2024 Corporate & Investment Bank – Credit Risk – Full-Time – London

JP Morgan

Location: Greater London

Job Type: Full time


Understanding, mitigating and managing risk is at the forefront of how we do business, and essential to our current and future success. You will work with people of all levels across the firm, develop a broad understanding of products and their risks, build your professional network, and develop your expertise in a diverse team environment. Working here means joining a collaborative and supportive team. We want your diverse perspective to help us to develop innovative solutions for our clients.

J.P. Morgan has operated in Europe for nearly 200 years and has a sophisticated local market presence across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Within the region, J.P. Morgan has an unparalleled client base and leadership across the spectrum of financial services products. We have offices in all major financial centres with a strong footprint in London, Paris and Frankfurt.

What You Can Expect

The analyst programme starts with a five week training programme in New York. Expert instructors and J.P. Morgan professionals will deliver a structured programme, including topics such as valuations, accounting, corporate finance, economics, equity capital markets, debt capital markets and risk analysis.

You will build your technical and practical knowledge on-the-job within the Credit Risk department. The team works in partnership with areas of the Commercial, Corporate and Investment Bank and is responsible for assessing client credit strength and approving and managing the firm's credit risk. This risk (i.e. the risk of default) can relate to underwriting, lending and trading activities, including investment and non-investment grade syndicated loans, acquisition finance, derivatives, foreign exchange and other products.

Once on the desk, your responsibilities as an analyst may include performing evaluation/due diligence on a counterparty/product, monitoring risk sensitivities across specific counterparties and the portfolio as a whole, building financial models, performing bottom-up analysis in response to global events and preparing presentations to outline recommendations to senior management. Juniors play a key role within the team, with their work outputs being utilised for decision making.

You will have the chance to:

  • Learn about credit risk at a global investment bank
  • Work collaboratively across the entire organisation to proactively solve problems
  • Analyse financial performance and operations/industry dynamics of companies and take responsibility of your own portfolio of clients within an industry

As part of the analyst programme, analysts will be assigned an industry team either in Financial Institutions Group, Corporates or Emerging Markets. The analyst program is an opportunity to take your career to the next level through hands-on experience, relevant training and valuable professional networking. The analyst programme will take place in the location specified in the application.

About You

A strong interest in global financial markets, investigative and quantitative skills, flexibility and attention to detail.

Beyond that, what we’re most interested in are the things that make you, you: the personal qualities, outside interests and achievements beyond academia that demonstrate the kind of person you are and the difference you could bring to the team.
