Careers in DCM – Leveraged Finance at UBS
David Soanes (Cambridge, DCM at UBS)
Are you a born multi-tasker? Are you happiest when you’re tackling complex information? A role in Global Capital Markets could be your dream job.
What we do
Global Capital Markets bridges the gap between an investment banking role and a sales or trading role by combining the analytical, quantitative aspect of banking with the fast-paced and demanding environment of the trading floor.
The group is made up of Debt Capital Markets and Equity Capital Markets, and it’s part of the Securities Group within UBS.
The Global Capital Markets Group works with some of the world’s major corporations, financial institutions and public sector entities. Analysts in this group identify clients’ individual funding needs and determine appropriate markets, instruments and offering structures to maximize their objectives.
What we’re looking for
Analysts in the Global Capital Markets Group manage several assignments simultaneously. You’ll need to be able to juggle multifaceted tasks and projects every single day.
An instinct for numbers will enable you to fulfil a wide variety of responsibilities, including assessing market capacity, transaction sizes and potential investor demand.
Successful Analysts possess exceptional organisational skills, useful in collecting and analyzing market data and in maintaining our valuable databases. Meanwhile, natural flair as a communicator will make all the difference in producing winning presentations for client meetings.
What we can offer you
When you join our Graduate program, your education starts on the very first day. An intensive training programme equips you with the skills and financial knowledge necessary to excel in your new job. You’ll also be encouraged to network with colleagues across the firm, giving you contacts that can help you build your career.
Analysts joining the Global Capital Markets Group at UBS are provided with broad experience in capital markets and investment banking. Following your classroom training, you’ll join either the Debt Capital Markets or Equity Capital Markets Groups. From there, you’ll actively participate in originating, structuring and executing debt and equity products.
Analysts become involved in every aspect of transaction analysis and execution from start to finish, so you’ll get the chance to hone your skills in everything from pitching and marketing to closing and pricing.
As a Global Capital Markets Analyst, you’ll also receive maximum opportunity to interact with the complete range of UBS’s services, resources, sector groups and clients.
