Hedge fund Viking Global Investors is looking to add a structured credit analyst. The fund, with offices in New York and Greenwich, Conn., is growing as it eyes expanding its distressed structured credit fund by $100 million. “Our vision [for the fund] is changing along with the market,” said an official at the firm. The official declined to specify the current size of the credit fund, which is a subset of the asset manager’s larger portfolio.
The analyst will join four analysts already working on the fund, which has been in existence for about seven years. The hedge fund is looking for candidates with expertise in collateralized debt obligations, asset-backed and/or residential mortgage-backed securities and five to 10 years of experience. The fund has $9 billion in assets under management.
