Moving from commercial credit to distressed credit/debt
I am currently fresh into a new job as a commercial credit analyst at a bank with a 1.2bil in assets. I wanted to ask the members of WSO a few questions:
1.) Is it possible to move from commercial credit (analyst) to distressed credit/debt (analyst)? if so,
2.) what would be the best route? I was thinking leverage finance or restructuring then making the jump to distress.
3.) What skill set would I need to develop?
I am looking at roles that would give me the skill set so long-term I can ultimately generating/researching ideas, modeling those ideas and then turn around and managing a portfolio of those ideas.
Any advice or questions are welcome.
