2018 Investment Banking Summer Analyst - Structured Products Origination

ABOUT THE POSITION

Guggenheim Securities, the Investment Banking division of Guggenheim Partners, is seeking an Summer Analyst to join its Structured Products Origination team. Structured Products is a core focus area at Guggenheim, and the firm is a market leader in providing its clients with a broad range of financing solutions using securitization technology applied to a variety of non-traditional asset classes, including franchise royalties, IP rights, billboards, aircraft, tax liens, cell towers, venture debt and others.

Securitization is a technology that, by combining and isolating assets with stable, predictable cash flows, enables an issuer to access attractive sources of financing when compared to traditional forms of debt. Securitization results in the tranching of cash flows generated by a pool of assets into one or more instruments which carry varying risk/reward profiles, called Asset-Backed Securities, and the subsequent sale of the resulting instruments to investors. Asset-Backed Securities are frequently categorized based on the underlying assets which back them, which range from the traditional (auto loans, student loans, credit card receivables, etc.) to the non-traditional (franchise royalties, tax liens, venture debt, etc.).

Guggenheim ranks as the #1 underwriter of Non-Traditional Asset-Backed Securities, with over $20 billion raised across 35+ transactions executed since 2014, including hallmark deals for Domino's, Dunkin' Brands and Taco Bell.

The role will be located in the firm's New York office.
