The Team Leader of Bank Loan Pricing is responsible for managing a team of Bank Loan evaluators and providing timely and accurate end-of-day Bank Loan evaluations. Evaluations are used by banks, brokerage houses, insurance companies, and asset managers for client statements, research, risk analysis, and portfolio valuation. Evaluators analyze broker contributions, trading activity, and the new issue market. A great deal of time is spent obtaining quotes from trading desks, analyzing these quotes, and applying them to appropriate issues. Evaluators also perform quality control checks to insure pricing accuracy. Evaluators have direct customer contact. Clients call evaluators directly to challenge prices and verify price fluctuations. Evaluators must remain until 6PM in order to answer these inquiries. Other responsibilities include networking with Bank Loan market participants, documentation, training junior evaluators, identifying system enhancements, and working with development on system design.
