Risk Analyst

About LSQ:

LSQ Funding is a technology-driven provider of accounts receivable financing to companies who need working capital but may not be able to obtain sufficient financing from their bank. Our focus is to help businesses to release the liquidity tied up in their accounts receivable. With financing from LSQ, a business can purchase more inventory, fill more orders, and take advantage of new growth opportunities. Our creative and timely approach to providing working capital, along with our comprehensive accounts receivable management services, allows our clients to drive business success.

The role of the Risk Analyst:

The Risk Analyst is responsible for reviewing and analyzing the risk profile of small businesses & middle market companies (in a B2B environment), communicating directly with prospective clients, and proposing creative structures and solutions to facilitate deals. This is NOT the traditional Underwriter role found at banks, insurance companies, auto lenders, etc.. Data and technology will be at the forefront of your decision-making process. This is a data-driven analytical role.  And while this is not a senior-level position, we need someone with at least 3+ years of financial analysis experience.

 The Risk Analyst will:

  • Learn and understand foundational accounts receivable/billing procedures to identify & mitigate risk
  • Propose funding solutions, and facilitate/execute decision-making 
  • Leverage data and analytical tools to bring quantitative rigor to the funding and decision-making process 
  • Effectively communicate with external and internal constituents, with a keen focus on problem solving
  • Issue and negotiate closing documentation (contracts, guaranties, subordinations, etc.)
  • Prepare the client for a smooth transition to Client Services team
  • The Risk Analyst will work with Excel, SQL and Tableau; if you are not familiar with them walking in the door, that's OK; we are offer you the chance to learn these business-critical skills and will give you the 'on the job' training you need

This role drives the decision-making process at LSQ as to whether or not we fund a new client. There is no committee. Accountability lies squarely with the Risk Analyst.

What the Risk Analyst needs to have:

  • Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience required, preferably in Finance, Accounting or Business
  • 3 or more years in a risk or financial analysis role focused on data review and ingestion, decision-making and analytics; experience in the capital markets, fixed income, equity, RIA and/or Broker-Dealer industries is ideal
