You are highly technical and fascinated by how things work. You are interested in understanding every detail, be it the latest gadget, theory or the assumptions behind an Excel model. You are highly focused, determined and motivated and your infinite resourcefulness outweighs the finite resources you are given. Projects are always completed on time (or earlier than expected) and you work tirelessly to advance the product, never compromising on quality. You consider yourself an expert in things you pursue. You are a genuine team player and know that a lot more can be achieved by supporting your colleagues, coupled with your colleagues’ support to you.
What’s the role?
Bloomberg is seeking a highly motivated person to join the BVAL GSAC (Government, Supranational, Agencies, Corporates) Evaluation team. This team is responsible for designing and supporting bond valuation models using Bloomberg's in-house analytics and database. This team consists of capital markets professionals with extensive and varied experience, including traders, portfolio managers, structurers and sales people.
The ideal candidate should have a deep understanding of the High Yield or Investment Grade universe, excellent Excel skills, including the ability to create financial models, perform statistical analysis and work with large data sets to help design and support BVAL’s valuation models. Python and/or VBA experience will be beneficial but not essential. Strong communication skills are vital for this role as you will be working with colleagues from a variety of backgrounds, including other senior pricing analysts, product managers, engineering and quants. You will also, at times, assist the sales team in presenting the BVAL service to our clients.
