Portfolio Management Associate - loans

The Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB) is a multilateral development bank whose mission is financing the Infrastructure for Tomorrow-infrastructure with sustainability at its core. We began operations in Beijing in January 2016 and have since grown to 105 approved members worldwide. We are capitalized up to USD100 billion and Triple-A-rated by the major international credit rating agencies. Working with partners, AIIB meets clients' needs by unlocking new capital and investing in infrastructure that is green, technology-enabled and promotes regional connectivity.

To strengthen its portfolio management capabilities, AIIB's Implementation Monitoring Department (IMD) is recruiting a Portfolio Management Associate ("PMA"). The main responsibility of the PMA will be to support and assist Portfolio Management Officers (PMO) in actively monitoring and managing the infrastructure loan portfolio (including both sovereign-backed financings and non-sovereign-backed financings) to ensure that AIIB's strategic objectives in terms of development impact and financial sustainability are met.

Responsibilities:
Assist senior portfolio monitoring officers in carrying out various monitoring tasks at both project/asset level and at portfolio level, including, but not limited to, the following:
  • Assist PMOs in monitoring loan assets, including, among other activities, spreading and analyzing financial statements of project companies; preparing and/or adapting existing financial models for scenario analysis; periodic credit analysis of loan assets.

  • Track compliance by borrower clients with the financial and other covenants in the loan agreements, flag any deviations and discuss follow-up action with supervisor.
  • Track compliance by borrowers in the on-time delivery of financial, ESG and other reporting requirements pursuant to the financing agreements; follow up on outstanding deliverables and issues.
  • During the disbursement period, assess the borrower's compliance with the conditions precedent for each disbursement, coordinate with the project parties as needed, and keep the senior PMOs informed of the progress in such process;
  • Draft memos for the processing of consents, waivers, amendments and other events, under the supervision of senior PMOs.
  • Carry out analytical tasks on a wide range of operational, country and sectoral issues in the loan portfolio, review and interpret information/data and propose actions to address issues identified.
  • Participate in preparing quarterly and annual Portfolio Monitoring Reports that will be presented to Senior Management and the Board.
  • Participate in internal and external project or portfolio review meetings and drafting meeting notes/minutes, as requested by the supervisor.
  • Carry out other duties that may be assigned by the IMD.

Requirements:
  • Minimum 5 years of relevant working experience in monitoring of project implementation for infrastructure investment operations.
  • Basic knowledge of major infrastructure sectors, such as energy, transport, water, and/or urban development.
  • Strong analytical skills; experiences in financial modeling and financial analysis of investment projects would be preferred.
  • Superior written and verbal communication skills in English with demonstrated ability to think strategically and synthesize complex issues (translated into effective oral and written briefs) and ability to comprehend complex project contracts .
  • Ability to collaborate with other team members and contribute productively to the team's work and output, demonstrating respect for different points of view.
  • Master's degree (such as economics, finance, business administration, international relations, social sciences or similar field relevant to AIIB's operations).

AIIB is committed to diversity, transparency and inclusion. We believe our strength comes from having a team with the right diverse skills, experiences and abilities selected through a merit-based competitive process. We actively encourage applications from people from both within and outside AIIB members, regardless of nationality, religion, gender, race, disability or sexual orientation.
