Director, Professional
Contract Type

The Institute of International Finance (IIF) is one of the world’s largest global associations of financial institutions with 475 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 from the private financial community in discussions with the public sector on global economic and financial policy issues. We are currently recruiting for the position(s) listed below.

The Institute's Capital Markets and Emerging Markets Policy (CEM) Department aims to catalyze thinking, foster dialogue and encourage policy coordination to enhance the efficiency and stability of the global financial system. As part of this work, the CEM team analyzes developments in international capital markets and monitors potential systemic risks, emphasizing voluntary, market-based approaches to crisis prevention and crisis resolution.

The Deputy Director will work across the full range of CEM products and services, including analytical research and cross-departmental collaborative projects as well as working group activities, membership outreach and events. S/he will edit and oversee production of CEM research and background materials for working groups. S/he will also develop ideas for the systematic monitoring of global markets, looking at developed and emerging market asset classes including credit, fixed-income, equities, currencies and derivatives as well as industries including banking and institutional investment. In conducting this work, s/he will synthesize research from a broad range of IIF and external sources. A particular focus will be the implications of regulatory change for financial services firms (including changes in their business models), financial market structures and practices, with the goal of enhancing an understanding of how market participants and transmission mechanisms will adapt to the evolving regulatory environment. 

Applicants must have extensive experience in credit and capital market analysis related to financial markets and institutions, especially during periods of rapid regulatory change. A strong understanding of financial markets and the private financial sector is important. Practical tools should include expertise in the use of appropriate spreadsheets and databases, modeling techniques, and financial analysis tools, as well as the ability to identify and use market sources of data and intelligence. The ability to write clear, concise and informative reports — and to communicate the results of research and analysis effectively in oral or written form — is essential. Equally important is the ability to be flexible and manage multiple priorities, working collaboratively across departmental lines. International experience and perspectives are highly desirable.
