VP - Private Debt - Emerging Markets

Allianz Global Investors

AllianzGI is committed to growing its sustainable investment business and private markets has been the fastest growing area in the company with over €71bn of Assets under Management. ~crlf~Development Finance combines AllianzGI’s passion for impact investing together with our expertise and innovative heritage in private markets. As the Development Finance team continues to launch new products, an opportunity exists to join this young, energetic, and creative team.~crlf~~crlf~Development Finance is a relatively new line of business, pioneered by AllianzGI together with Allianz and more recently, third-party investors: we create new investment opportunities for our clients to invest in emerging and frontier markets in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”). Since 2017, we have launched several investment strategies including blended finance debt funds (Allianz & IFC MCPP infrastructure vehicle; Allianz & [Undisclosed Development Bank] SDG Loan partnership) as well as an Agency-backed strategy which started as a COVID-19 support initiative with the Multilateral Investment Guarantee Agency (MIGA) and has since evolved into Export Credit Agency guaranteed investments and other credit enhanced loans.~crlf~~crlf~The common factor among all these strategies is that they are based on partnerships with Development Financial Institutions, philanthropies, and governments to facilitate debt investments by institutional investors. Historically private investment in our core markets has been low; we are in an unprecedented time where all parties need to work together to achieve the SDGs – the AllianzGI Development Finance team leads the dialogue in the industry and facilitates the creation of new investment opportunities.~crlf~~crlf~The role will primarily focus on sourcing, structuring, and execution of debt investments across emerging markets (portfolio management), however it will also include strategic product development and fundraising. The role will have a global scope and includes significant cross functional interaction.~crlf~~crlf~The VP will work closely with the rest of the team in a collaborative and exciting high-performance environment.~crlf~~crlf~The successful candidate will be a highly motivated individual, exhibiting the highest levels of competency, integrity, ability to think independently and teamwork capabilities. Individuals who tend to naturally assume responsibility for a project they work on, would find a great fit in the Development Finance team.
