Job Overview
Based in Toronto and operating under a national mandate, CIBC’s Asset-Based Lending group (“CIBC ABL”) provides clients with customized loan placements secured by accounts receivable, inventories and fixed assets. Operating individually or as the Lead Bank in a larger syndicate, CIBC ABL concludes fundings for a wide variety of Canadian industries where its asset-focused structures provide greater flexibility than typical credit models for collateral rich companies.
Target clients for Asset-Based Lending include large commercial and corporate entities, both privately-owned or publicly-traded, with senior debt requirements between $10 million and $500 million. These credit facilities may be complex in nature and are structured for a broad array of purposes, including financing working capital and fixed assets, growth capital, recapitalizations, restructurings, leveraged buy-outs, acquisitions and management buy-outs. Main target industries include manufacturing, distribution, retail, steel, forest products and agriculture.
What You’ll Be Doing
  • In conjunction with other ABL team members and independently, prepare and assist in presentations of financing proposals to clients. Assist in negotiation of terms and conditions of proposals.
  • Attend discussions with client management (executive, financial and operational) in order to assess financing needs.
  • Assist in preparation of financing proposals (structuring terms and conditions including security, covenants and pricing) to properly reflect and compensate CIBC for assessed risk. Prepare draft recommendations on credit submissions and investment proposals to present to senior management. Assist with comprehensive due diligence on all transactions.
  • Perform comprehensive analysis of due diligence results to validate asset values, determine lending eligibility of collateral, determine appropriate advance rates, and evaluate the efficacy of information systems and reporting capabilities.
  • Perform comprehensive financial/non-financial analysis and risk assessment of credit proposals including preparing required financial models.
  • Prepare credit memoranda and other credit correspondence in a well thought out, thorough and efficient manner and in accordance with policies and procedures.
  • Present recommendations on transactions to senior management, credit and risk adjudication in a thorough, clear and concise manner.
  • Assist with appropriate documentation for accepted credit proposals, negotiations and closings.
  • Ensure reporting requirements are met, financial covenants tests are completed with required documentation submitted by borrowers and, based on appropriate review and compliance, approve loan advances;
  • Complete reviews and present analysis on borrowers’ financial condition/account status as required;
  • Appropriately address borrowers’ requests in a timely manner and ensure that any related credit applications are completed accurately and in a timely manner;
  • Develop good relations with internal customers, external customers and general industry contacts to generate new referrals and business opportunities and to maintain a window on the market.
  • Actively be involved with execution of an appropriate sell-down strategy for syndicated transactions. Duties performed on syndicated transactions include preparing information memorandums and other pertinent market information, approaching and negotiating with potential participants, assisting with legal documentation and closing.


What We’re Looking For
  • Minimum 2 years of commercial or corporate credit experience, preferably in a transaction execution role. Previous experience in an asset-based lending role would be a definite asset.
  • Undergraduate degree in finance, accounting or business administration (BCom/BBA).
  • Advanced business degree or professional designation (MBA/CFA/CA/CGA/CMA) or equivalent work experience would be an asset.
  • Proven financial analysis and credit skills with the ability to identify key transactions risks and potential mitigation.
  • Good understanding of the Asset-Based Lending product, marketplace and loan structuring.

  • Self-motivated; able to complete tasks with minimal supervision.
  • Good understanding of corporate finance and ability to evaluate and understand complex capital structures.
  • Well-developed financial modeling skills.
  • Strong computer literacy, including Microsoft Office.
