The Financial Economist will contribute to department and collaborative research reports by monitoring and analyzing financial market developments with a view to identifying broad market drivers as well as potential systemic risks.

The Institute of International Finance (IIF) is one of the world’s largest global associations of financial institutions with nearly 500 members in 75 countries. We provide economic and financial analysis to our members, serve as a forum for exchanging views and developing proposals on global regulatory issues; and represent our members in discussions with the public sector on global economic and financial policy issues.  IIF’s Global Capital Markets (GCM) Department analyzes developments in international capital markets and monitors potential systemic risks, looking across geographies at sectors including fixed-income, credit, derivatives, equities, currencies and commodities.

 

The Financial Economist will contribute to department and collaborative research reports by monitoring and analyzing financial market developments with a view to identifying broad market drivers as well as potential systemic risks. S/he will also support several IIF working groups, by developing agendas, drafting background notes and discussion summaries, and helping to build and maintain group membership. S/he will also contribute to financial sector analysis, including researching trends in the banking, asset management, insurance, and pension sectors, as well as building databases. Finally, s/he will help to train and oversee junior staff and interns on data projects.
