As a purpose driven organization, we are committed to making a positive influence on our clients, our associates, our communities and the capital markets at large.

    Founded in 1991, Chatham is a market leader serving more than 1,200 clients annually, through a global team of risk management advisors, CPAs, analysts and technology and software developers, from our offices in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

    Chatham serves a wide range of clients globally, including real estate companies, private equity investment funds, mid-sized financial institutions and a large spectrum of corporations across the Fortune 1000. Our capabilities stem from our deep capital markets expertise, proven and scaled processes and our advanced technology platform that both supports our risk management practitioners and our clients as a SaaS solution for managing risk. We work hard to partner with our clients, and have uniquely positioned ourselves as both a world-class financial risk management advisory firm and a technology solution provider. Our goal is to leverage our proven capabilities to address their challenges by providing tailored solutions that best meet their needs.

    As an employee-owned, view-neutral services firm, with no affiliation to any financial institution, Chatham has worked hard to create a distinct work environment that values people, teamwork, integrity and hard work. We always strive to do what is right, just and fair, even when no one is looking. We would rather be governed by principles than rules. We believe leadership should be gained through influence and personal character, not by title or tenure. As a result, we have a non-hierarchical, team-oriented organization.

    Our interview and employment process is designed to attract people who can subscribe to, and constantly embody, the core values that we represent. Every member of our team must be completely trustworthy, possess high ethical standards, be a great team player, and strive for excellence. It is difficult to overstate how important the qualities of effective collaboration and a willingness to serve others are to our organization, and thus to any individual’s success at Chatham.

    The Role
    With the advent of Dodd-Frank and EMIR (European Market Infrastructure Regulation), our real estate teams face an increased operational requirements and new processes that will be necessary to execute derivatives transactions. We seek to enhance our team with a role specializing in regulatory, documentation and process management for our interest rate and currency hedging services. The purpose of the role is to continuously improve the efficiency, accuracy, and scalability of our hedging operations as we serve clients with excellence both before and after transactions are executed.

    Responsibilities
    • Ability to understand the new derivatives regulations and their impact on the operational aspects of hedging
    • Serve as the real estate teams’ subject matter expert and resource on derivatives regulation from a process perspective
    • Work closely with the regulatory advisory team to learn the impact of emerging regulations on the real estate team’s transaction process
    • Assist in training other members of the real estate teams on salient regulatory issues from an operational perspective
    • Review loan documents and extract key economic data as it pertains to hedge structuring

Skills critical to this role include organization, initiative, attention to detail, consistent accuracy, strong verbal and written communication skills, and the ability to create, maintain and improve highly effective processes. We’ve found individuals with experience in bank operations or in the paralegal field tend to possess the skills and abilities critical to success in this role. Recent college graduates that demonstrate maturity and competence will be considered as well. A degree in finance is not required, but comfort with math is important. An individual’s skills and characteristics are of primary importance to us, regardless of background.

    We seek individuals who will thrive in our culture and can make a significant impact over the long term.

Career development opportunities involve managing cross-team processes, relationships with counterparty banks, and becoming a resident expert in ISDA, regulatory and related derivatives documentation. In an effort to enhance our documentation process capabilities, this role is not structured to lead to consulting clients with hedge strategy and execution, but rather will remain a critical component to the operational effectiveness of the team.

    Job Summary
    We are looking to expand our FMS (Financial Management System) team. Demand for this service has been growing rapidly and we’re looking for individuals who can help us onboard new clients and service existing clients.

    Managing debt/loan financial data
    FMS is a powerful set of web-based analytical tools and reporting features combined with professional advisors that our clients depend on for managerial and financial accounting purposes.
    • Team members will be responsible for working with our clients’ commercial real estate loan contracts. They will interact directly with clients to find missing information and ensure that all transaction details are accurate and complete.
    • Each team member will employ Chatham’s internal software to capture relevant information.
    • Meeting client reporting timelines is critical, and likewise the ability to multi-task and prioritize.
    Handle challenging data management issues
    Compiling and capturing the complete picture of a client’s debt is challenging because:
    • Loan documents are challenging legal contracts that require time and experience to gain proficiency and expertise. But once these skills are gained, they become highly valuable in our industry.
    • Often clients’ data resides in disparate systems, spreadsheets and notebooks across their company. Our clients love the fact that we can manage and centralize their loan information in one place.
    • The picture of a client’s balance sheet is often a moving target as they refinance existing loans, issue new debt, make new investments, or prepay existing loans. Therefore, we need to develop ongoing relationships with clients to help ensure that the data in our system remains current.
    Bringing new clients on board
    When bringing a new FMS client into Chatham, the loan data analyst will serve as a “financial detective” and:
    • Work directly with clients to understand and complete a spreadsheet template for all loans.
    • Identify omissions and inconsistencies in client data and work with our clients to resolve issues.
    • Generate payments for all loans based on Chatham’s calculations and reconcile them with existing client reports and documentation.
    • Using various FMS reports, reconcile with the client at the balance sheet level so that the FMS system accurately reflects the client’s loan profile.
    • Undertake client-facing activities including introducing our financial management system's value proposition to prospective clients, supporting a focused approach to the development of client relationships as well as organizing and leading training sessions on how to use the system.
    • Work with clients on an ongoing basis to
      1. Maintain the accuracy of their data
      2. Capture refinancing and hedging assumptions for budgeting and forecasting
      3. Understand new system requirements and communicate them with the team
    Growth Path
    It is our desire to see every Chatham team member grow into a greater range of responsibilities and depth of expertise over time. A motivated team member can grow into an expert in loan contracts, a highly valued area of specialization that can be leveraged in many transactions in real estate and corporate finance. Team members also become expert client managers, working through many challenging issues over the course of long term client relationships. Team members should also aspire to understand the linkage between real estate finance and Chatham’s risk management business, which will result in a deep understanding of many financial instruments and their use. Our goal is to develop you so that you can assume greater responsibility and positively influence those around you.

    Requirements
    We have found those with experience as a paralegal have very relevant and transferable skills that allow the person to be successful in this role. Paralegals looking for a change in work environment and the opportunity to learn something new are candidates we would certainly consider.

    Additionally, individuals with degrees in accounting, finance, economics, or specializations that require a good amount of reading with emphasis on analysis of data seem to be a good fit but we are open to any university specialization as long as the individual possesses the ability to meticulously focus on details while understanding the big picture. Prior experience in economics or finance is not required. Most critically, we are looking for individuals who want to make a long-term commitment to Chatham. We make a substantial investment in each of our employees, and we hope that each Chatham team member will be a lasting and integral part of our future growth and success.
    However, some basic criteria are:
    • Excellence with numbers and mathematics
    • Capacity for meticulous detail-oriented work
    • Problem solving skills and a deep intellectual curiosity
    • Excellent written and spoken verbal skills; the legal terminology in real estate loan contracts can be highly technical and difficult to decipher
    • Exceptional ability to think logically and conceptually
    • Ability to organize and prioritize many evolving and growing responsibilities
    • Ability to build and maintain client relationships
    • Strong customer service orientation
    • Drive, determination, and outstanding academic and/or professional accomplishments
