Description **Job Description:**
We believe Bank of America Merrill Lynch (“BAML”) can do more for our clients than any other financial services firm. We understand the challenges our clients face around the world, and we use the full resources of our company to help them achieve their goals. Our solutions span the complete range of advisory, capital raising, banking, treasury and liquidity, sales and trading, and research capabilities.
Our Global Corporate & Investment Banking business focuses on building long-term relationships with more than 3,000 large U.S. and multinational corporations, financial institutions and financial sponsors. We provide strong advisory expertise, capitalizing on powerful mergers and acquisitions, corporate banking, treasury, debt and equity product expertise to deliver integrated financial solutions.
Responsible for administration and monitoring of client relationships and associated transactions in the BAPCC Energy Services (“ES”) portfolio. Clients are typically Federal, municipal or institutional entities for which we have provided financing for energy savings equipment and energy efficiency improvements. Duties will include the periodic financial statement and credit review of our ES clients, monitoring construction progress, and monitoring the credit profile of key transaction counterparties (i.e. our Energy Services Company (“ESCO”) partners). With respect to the latter, it is anticipated that the Leasing Credit Officer ll (“LCO ll”) will maintain a database on these counterparties.
A key element of the LCO II’s role will be to perform the monitoring requirements outlined in BAML Credit Policy. This will include the preparation of client status reviews and risk rating scorecards, as well as troubled asset reports. The LCO II will also assist in responding to information requests on the portfolio from senior Credit and Risk management.
In executing these duties, the LCO II will interact with BAPCC Credit Underwriting and Transaction Management, Leasing Contracts Management, as well as credit associates in BAML Public Sector Banking. The LCO II will also interact directly with our clients in the context of routine administration and financial performance discussions, as well as to address any issues that may develop with individual transactions. The latter may also involve discussions with our ESCO partners. The LCO II will report to the Portfolio Management Leasing Credit Manager.
