The Role:
We are currently looking for a highly skilled and motivated individual to join our Global Infrastructure Ratings Practice as an Associate based in our Toronto office focused on the North American Regulated Utilities sector.

Key Responsibilities:
The Associate undertakes rigorous analytical work and is proficient in conducting research and fundamental credit analysis, analyzing financial statements, working with financial models and forecasts, and writing analytical reports on rated electric, gas and water investor owned utilities. The successful candidate is able to work effectively in a fast paced environment, possess strong interpersonal and communication skills, is customer-oriented, and demonstrates excellent presentation skills.

The Career Opportunity:
As an Associate, you are working as part of the Global Infrastructure Practice at S&P Global Ratings.

These responsibilities include ongoing surveillance and rating recommendations, repeat analytical contact with rated entities' senior management, and presentation of analytical findings to internal and external constituencies. A high performing Associate is likely to be considered for rating more complex and higher profile issuers, as well as for investor outreach. We prepare our most successful Associates to become our future senior analysts that act as spokespersons and senior analytical leaders in sector teams.

  • At S&P Global Ratings, your analytical opinion truly matters and each person who works here has an essential role in our reputation of integrity, transparency, and ratings excellence.
  • S&P Global Ratings plays a vital role in bringing transparency and comparability to the financial markets and helps investors and others measure and manage credit risk.
  • By supporting capital markets, S&P Global Ratings helps people to start and grow businesses, cities and states to build highways and hospitals, and manufacturers to build factories and create jobs.

Qualifications:
  • MS/MBA in Finance, Economics, Accounting and/or CFA preferred.
  • Solid, demonstrable experience (2+ years) within a large commercial bank, investment bank, investing institution/asset manager, or rating agency working in the field of credit analysis of corporations and/or energy companies.
  • Strong analytical skills with a deep understanding of financial statement analysis and accounting concepts.
