    At Vanguard, one of the world’s largest investment companies, we grow by doing the right thing for the clients we serve, and that includes safeguarding client funds and long-term performance.  Our Credit Research group is seeking a Senior Investment Grade Credit Analyst who could analyze and evaluate investment grade corporate bonds and trends in the context of economic, political, regulatory and capital markets developments, and contribute to investment decision making and strategy.

    You will provide the Fixed Income Group with coverage of Industrial or Financial sectors, and work with a group of Investment Grade research and trading professionals to maximize the risk/return potential of investments while also collaborating with the larger fixed income organization.  You will interact regularly with portfolio managers, and will need to develop and maintain productive relationships with these individuals, as well as with investment banks, issuers, rating agencies, and fellow analysts. Based on your timely and accurate assessments of the current and projected credit quality of issuers, you will recommend to portfolio managers the purchase and sale of securities in your assigned coverage universe, while developing a performance track record to support future business development.

    In this role you will:

    • Use your expertise to provide investment recommendations on investment grade investments, including fundamental and relative value views within Industrial or Financial sectors
    • Perform investment research, including written opinions, models, and credit presentations within a collaborative environment
    • Lead or participate in strategic projects (could include the ESG strategy team or data evaluation exercise) both within the Investment Grade team and the broader Fixed Income organization
    • Mentor, develop and guide crew across the Investment Management division is also a key focus

    Strengthen our dedication to great value:

    As part of the Fixed Income Group, you will evaluate assets in a way that is consistent with the highest fiduciary and professional standards of prudence and integrity. You’ll seek out investment opportunities to maximize the total return of our funds subject to the specific fund’s investment objective and rigorous control of risk.  You enjoy collaborating as part of a tight-knit team, and have a consistent track record working with portfolio managers and traders. At Vanguard, you’ll be part of the essential core of an industry-leading company known for its strong ethical practices and client focus. The environment is collaborative and team-oriented, yet individual achievement is recognized and rewarded.

    Qualifications (What it takes):

    • Degree in finance related discipline, MBA/CFA preferred
    • Minimum 10 years credit research experience covering Financials (Banks/Brokers) or Industrials (Autos, Pharma, Healthcare) preferred
    • Demonstrated leadership experience coordinating and executing broad strategies
    • Strong performance track record, and an ability to work independently and as part of a team
