"supporting active credit management"

That sounds like middle office to me. The job title implies front office but it should probably say portfolio administrator or even credit analyst/related. It doesn't sound like you'll have much input into the investments of the portfolio. I also can't imagine you'll have a salary less than 6 figures as a PM.
