Trade and Supply Chain Finance (TSCF) and FS Debt are both product teams that sit within the Financial Services Group (FSG) at CDC. This internship will work across both teams ensuring the successful candidate develops a well-rounded exposure to FSG.
TSCF – The team provides trade and supply chain finance across CDC markets. This is achieved through FI, Corporate and SME risks using a variety of financing structures. The team takes a holistic approach to value chain financing seeking to participate in all areas of the value chain. Predominantly the team partners with Financial Institutions in CDC markets to enter Master Risk Participation Agreements (MRPAs) through which CDC is able to take risk on underlying borrowers. The team also provides direct loans to FIs and to Corporates and is currently growing its exposure to SME trade finance. Risk taken is short term (under 1 year) and is monitored and managed continuously by a dedicated portfolio management team.
FS Debt - The team focuses on structuring senior and subordinated debt transactions across different financial services clients (e.g. Banks, Microfinance Institutions, Non-Bank Financial Institutions, FinTech companies etc), with special emphasis on Climate financing, gender financing and SME financing. We provide a mix of tenors, but typically in the 5-7year range, but can go longer (or sometimes shorter) if required. The team comprises of 10 investment professionals, plus one (1) team assistant.
