Principal Analyst, Corporate Risk Analytics

London, Greater London, United Kingdom, £ £ - Annual Annual, Permanent


Verisk Maplecroft's Markets team delivers qualitative and quantitative research, applied data products, and advisory projects to the firm's financial sector clients. This includes the delivery of markets-oriented research and data products and the curation of the company's wider research through multiple formats including verbal briefings and investor calls; management of commercial strategy jointly with the sales team; and the development of distribution or product partnerships with third parties. The team partners with our wider data science, research, sales and consulting functions to maintain high levels of new business development and growth.

The firm is the leading provider of ESG, political risk and climate data and research on sovereigns and commodities, and is steadily growing its footprint in other asset classes including equities and corporate debt. The successful candidate will lead the company's expanding research and analytics relevant to equities and corporate debt investments. This is a strongly 'intrapreneurial' role in a fast-growing area of the business, so the successful candidate should be able to hit the ground running across a diverse set of competencies; but then be ready to progressively prioritise, scale and delegate as their product revenues grow.

Primary Responsibilities:

* Developing and iterating successive generations of corporate data-analytic products that solve the most important challenges of our current and future clients. This will happen via needs analysis, strategy, commercial positioning and business case development, exploratory testing and POC development; and rollout of products. The candidate will work with a broad set of technical, commercial and research colleagues to achieve this, but will be ultimately accountable for the success of such products

* Applying data outputs to regular short-form research deliverables, both directly as an author and indirectly via guidance of/collaboration with colleagues

* Initiation and authorship of genuinely innovative white papers to advance industry/stakeholder understanding of the materiality of ESG, climate and/or political factors

* Ad-hoc interaction with designated clients and prospects, in partnership with the commercial team, to support retention and new business development

* Subject to capacity, participation in advisory/consulting projects to support specific institutional investor clients with ESG incorporation, including at a strategic/policy level

* Representation of the firm at conferences and other events, and in key stakeholder groups / industry forums.

* Line management not initially a responsibility, but the candidate should be ready to take this on at a future point
