Work at the heart of sound investment
At Western Asset, our attitude is entrepreneurial but our approach to managing other people’s money is always measured, which is why we place such a high value on effective risk management.
We employ some of the best analytical minds to keep an eye on investment risks and to develop innovative technological platforms and tools for monitoring that risk. You could be one of them.
The risk analyst/manager will participate in the risk management of all money market-liquidity and municipal strategies and portfolios. The risk analyst/manager’s primary responsibility lies in performing in-depth analysis and developing quantitative risk models to independently identify, measure, assess, and ultimately control investment risk in the money market/liquidity (MMF/Liquidity) and municipal (Muni) strategies and portfolios.
What you will do
Where analytical ability comes first
Bring us exceptional quantitative reasoning and analytical skills and we’ll create a role to suit you.

This is a highly collaborative, collegiate department where self-motivation is vital, and shared problem-solving and learning is supported. We encourage initiative and innovation when it comes to developing new systems and methodologies to improve our risk management. At the same time, we depend on building strong relationships with other teams, and value a diplomatic approach to addressing issues around portfolio performance and risk.
What you will bring
