We invest in creating a culture that is defined by professional growth, collaboration, and opportunity. As our most valuable assets, Chatham's team members are rewarded with the opportunity to work with an incredible range of clients and consult on complex and exciting financial problems.
We provide individuals intellectually challenging, thought-provoking work in finance that stretches and develops them. Because we have built a successful global financial services business that works with world-class companies in solving complex problems, Chathamites at the start of their careers take on meaningful work as they progress through a steep learning curve supported by a strong team network. This approach gives motivated, self-starters the opportunities to interact regularly with high-level leaders during client engagements, as well as learn from and collaborate with colleagues who are expert practitioners. The Chatham environment encourages fast personal growth and the development of solid financial acumen in debt, derivatives and risk management.
Within our Advisory Services practice, we offer analysts a multitude of opportunities to start your career path in becoming a subject matter expert. Both the learning experience and business environment are highly dynamic, therefore the analyst role and career path are dynamic and evolving.
The career stories of our most experienced consultants are diverse, reflecting success at Chatham does not follow a single thread. Among leaders, we have individuals that have worked in the same practice area and with the same client base their entire career, as well as individuals that have rotated through several of the advisory practices. The consistent theme in success stories at Chatham is passion and commitment to learning, delivering, and serving.
Our Australian team is currently in search of an analyst to function in a multi-faceted role.
The team is small, fostering a pragmatic, hands-on approach to client deliverables. Chatham's Hedging practice advises clients on interest rate, foreign currency, and commodity hedging across industries and sectors spanning: real estate, private equity, ASX 100, and Fortune 1000 corporations, and financial institutions. Hedging teams across these sectors execute more than $450 billion in hedging transactions annually.
Analysts will gain a thorough understanding of derivative products and markets by focusing on pre and post-trade activities as they move towards client advisory and direct client interface. Learning takes place alongside experienced team members in an apprenticeship-style format to:
Structure and model derivative transactions.
Prepare and review transaction documents to assist with transaction execution, legal and regulatory compliance.
Assist with client and market research, as well as preparation of client deliverables.
While the specific responsibilities of an Analyst vary, here are some examples of responsibilities managed across our current Analysts:
Support deal managers in structuring, pricing, executing and communicating transactions.
Conduct detailed quantitative and qualitative analysis of client interest rate and foreign exchange exposures
Work directly with clients in onboarding their company's financial portfolios into our technology platform
Organize contracts and provide support of consulting engagements to streamline internal success
Support independent debt valuation models, research, and reporting
Conduct market research and prepare client presentations
Assist in preparation of month end accounting deliverables for clients
Chatham maintains an entrepreneurial culture that rewards teamwork and innovation. We seek individuals who are natural leaders, who have a desire and ability to learn quickly, and who fit our culture.
The team members that thrive consistently at Chatham tend to display the following attributes:
Quantitative skills: the ability to work with large amounts of data and understand causal relationships, attention to detail in both inputs and outputs, experience with statistical analysis and financial modeling a plus
Communication skills: the ability to communicate complex subject matter in a way that educates and prioritizes findings, flexing delivery style to accommodate different audiences, engaging with clients on new project proposals and ongoing delivery, effective communication through various formats (PowerPoint slides, email, verbal, spreadsheets, etc.)
Collaboration skills: the ability to share information internally to grow the capabilities of the team and to seek out knowledge from others when needed, partnering with external clients throughout a project, delivering on internal requirements to support other teams as needed
Project management skills: the ability to prioritize competing demands and align resources with project deliverables, communicating internal and external expectations throughout a project
A combination of these skills will be utilized by every team member, but we expect individual roles to draw out individual strengths that complement the team. Our goal is to develop people to their fullest potential so that they can achieve greater responsibilities, and have an impact on those around them, clients and teammates alike. While our work is in the financial realm, the primary qualification to apply is a willingness to join our community. No professional experience or certifications are required as we provide the relevant education through a mixture of training and apprenticeship programs, but our process is highly selective as we intentionally seek candidates with traits that contribute to the balance of firm's culture.
