The Corporates sector serves a wide range of companies from Fortune 100 multinationals to high-growth start-ups, across a wide range of industries. We offer our clients holistic financial risk management solutions for interest rate, currency, and commodities risk, including risk quantification, hedging strategy design, transaction execution, hedge accounting support, and technology solutions. The Corporates Deal team serves clients by partnering with them to identify their financial risks and ultimately mitigate those risks via execution of over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives in the market. The team consists of 8-10 members, including traders, transaction operations specialists, analysts, and regulatory support.  This role supports all aspects of that team, which range from operational and documentation support to client analysis and live trade execution.

In this role you will: 

  • Build expertise in interest rate, foreign currency (FX), and commodity markets and understand how corporations mitigate risk to those markets
  • Conduct client analysis to identify and suggest risk mitigation strategies
  • Support trade execution process including counterparty management, trade negotiation, documentation management, and ultimately live trade execution

  • Partner with the accounting team to ensure seamless coverage of pre- and post-trade activities to qualify for and apply hedge accounting treatment
  • Contribute to processes that support data integrity controls and regulatory requirements

Your impact: 

This role is key to connecting our clients to the market, both through the direct execution services we offer and the market expertise we bring to multiservice engagements. Our biggest competitive advantage in the Corporates sector is our integrated offering that combines tactical market knowledge with strategic and operational support from advisory and technology solutions. As an associate partnering with other Deal Team members, you will have the opportunity to fulfill and expand upon Chatham’s reputation for exceptional client service.  

Contributors to your success: 

We seek individuals who will thrive in our culture and make a significant impact over the long term and have consistently demonstrated drive, determination, and substantial academic/professional accomplishment throughout their lives.  A high level of intellectual curiosity, as well as the ability to build lasting relationships and improve processes, is required.  Finally, we are looking for individuals who want to make a long-term commitment to Chatham.  We make a large investment in each of our employees, and we hope that people will join us to be an integral part of our future growth and success. Specific requirements:

  • A bachelor’s degree and a minimum of 2 years of relevant industry experience in trading, finance, banking, or risk management
  • Strong analytical skills and ability to translate raw data into practical information
  • Strong Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint skills; experience in Power BI a plus
