Distressed Debt Analyst Wanted…

Porter & Co., a boutique financial research firm, is looking for a seasoned distressed debt analyst with a knack for finding asymmetrical risk opportunities – and an ability to communicate them in a clear, compelling and engaging manner.

For the right candidate, we offer a flexible environment with the opportunity to work remotely. We also offer an extremely competitive salary and a full range of benefits – including the ability to work among a collegial team of financial savants, analysts, writers, and troublemakers, including “the dean of the high yield market,” Marty Fridson.

Once hired, our distressed debt analyst will tackle what is likely to be the most lucrative restructuring environment in history. Almost $5 trillion in corporate debt will need to be refinanced through 2026, and upwards of $1 trillion of that will end up distressed. Within that universe will be enormous opportunity to uncover securities offering the potential for outsized returns.

As our lead debt analyst, you’ll have the opportunity to launch a subscription-based product(s) and to be part of a team that will advise our readers how best to allocate capital – a readership that includes some of the world’s leading hedge funds, high-net-worth investors, and major family offices.

You’ll help make our subscribers and clients richer and smarter. And to do that, you’ll write captivating analysis that discerning investors will find fun to read.


As our Distressed Debt Analyst, you’ll:

  • Write in-depth analyses of select (non-144A) distressed debt investment opportunities that you discover through rigorous analysis.
  • Follow and maintain a paper/publication portfolio of securities.
  • Write monthly reports and regular updates and contribute/take the lead on other publications as necessary. Work closely with the marketing and copywriting teams, as well as other analysts.
  • Participate in other efforts of a small, dynamic team to drive the business forward.


We are open to a broad spectrum of experience, but you will need to know the ins and outs of distressed debt securities, and have followed the market – as an investor, analyst, and/or market participant – for upwards of 10 years.

Beyond that, your most important credentials are qualities of mind: Curiosity, razor-sharp competitiveness, intellectual rigor, a flair for great storytelling, and a sense of humor. As we are a small group, it goes without saying that a positive, team-oriented frame of mind is essential.
