Senior Analyst, Financial Analytics & Modeling 8/17/2016
JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY Overview: About CIT
CIT (NYSE: CIT) was born in 1908 when Henry Ittleson found a new way to make financing available to businesses in St. Louis, Missouri. Soon CIT was forging paths across the country, into Canada and overseas. But time and experience have produced innovations unimagined a century ago. True to its pioneering legacy, CIT remains an agent of opportunity, providing new resources and fresh perspectives to over one million clients across thirty industries around the globe.
CIT is a financial holding company. It provides financing, leasing and advisory services principally to middle market companies across more than 30 industries primarily in North America, and equipment financing and leasing solutions to the transportation sector. It also offers products and services to consumers through its Internet bank franchise and a network of retail branches in Southern California, operating as OneWest Bank, a division of CIT Bank, N.A.
For more than 100 years, CIT has steadily innovated, providing carefully tailored financing solutions to meet the needs of a changing global economy. Along the way, CIT continually redefined what it means to be a financing partner, providing ideas as well as capital to build businesses - and relationships - that have endured for decades.
Responsibilities: The CIT Bank/OneWest Bank Financial Analytics & Modeling Group (FAM) maintains a diverse set of responsibilities including fixed-income asset valuation, software development, and deep data analytics. As an analyst, you will use your quantitative and qualitative skills to explore intuitive practical solutions to engaging problems related to valuation of loan pools, fixed-income assets, interest rate risk hedging, and financial modeling. Additionally, you will be responsible for leading projects and/or delivering presentations to the team as business needs require.
Our team is responsible for the valuation of a diverse set of financial assets including residential and commercial mortgage pools. To support this effort, we develop proprietary software that encapsulates our asset valuation models.

We seek talented intelligent individuals with an STEM background to join the CIT/OneWest family. We seek those who thrive in a quantitative computationally-oriented work setting, and who want to join us in a fast-paced corporate finance environment. You should be able to learn rapidly. And, you should be eager to find practical solutions to hard problems.
