About the Role 

Yieldstreet’s Investment Team is looking for a Commercial Investment Associate to join our Private Credit vertical. This role is a front line of defense for incoming trade finance and specialty finance transactions, working closely with senior underwriters to thoroughly vet all potential business opportunities by developing a comprehensive list of questions to ask and information to obtain to make an informed decision to underwrite a new deal. You will work side by side with Senior Underwriters on transactions as we underwrite, document and close new offerings as well as assist our marketing team as we  prepare these opportunities for launch on our platform. Performance tracking will also be part of this role; reviewing borrowing bases, covenant compliance and financial reporting on a weekly or monthly basis and communicating results to senior members on the team at regular team meetings.  This role will be on a small team of senior underwriters that drives significant growth for our company so working independently while also moving the function forward is critical. 

What you'll do:

  • Screen and review all CIMS and ancillary reporting data, asking the right questions to understand the underlying business and evaluate requests, making recommendations to senior underwriters in turn.
  • Prepare in depth financial analysis on historic balance sheet, income statement and cash flow performance as well as vet projection models, developing appropriate sensitivity analysis.
  • Conduct originator, borrower and guarantor due diligence, including analysis of transaction structure, counterparty creditworthiness, and quality of collateral pledged as security.
  • Work with underwriters to underwrite the performance of accounts receivable, inventory and/or equipment collateral from a credit perspective providing appropriate comp analysis and industry research.
  • Prepare drafts of all Series Note Supplements and Offering Pages and work collaboratively with underwriting, legal and marketing teams for approval often under tight deadlines.
  • Monitor current performance of each transaction with comparisons to prior periods and planned performance for borrowing bases, financial results, model performance and covenant compliance with credit agreements.   

What you’ll need:

  • Bachelor’s Degree required. A focus in Finance or Accounting is a plus
  • Formal Credit Training and/or a minimum of two years in a comparable role.
  • Excellent organizational skills and high attention to detail
  • Deal execution mindset
  • Analytical and curious mind, understanding the details of all the requests on your desk but also the expertise to ask the right questions to evaluate transactions efficiently (gather all the pros and cons).
  • Ability to work at the pace of a venture-backed, hyper growth organization where you’ll need to think and act on your feet strategically and independently, all while delivering high quality analysis.
  • Flexible and dynamic capacity to multitask on several transactions at the same time.

Bonus points for:

  • In depth knowledge of excel is critical for this function.
  • CPA or MBA in finance or completion of a formal Bank Credit Training Program

As set forth in Yieldstreet’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
