Careers in Financing the Private Sector in Developing Asia
Are you interested in an exciting and rewarding career in financing and managing investments in private sector projects in developing Asia?
Are you intrigued by financing large scale energy and transport projects in the Mekong region, for example? Financing banks and other intermediaries in central Asia? Examining the best opportunities for private equity funds to invest in emerging markets?
ADB's Private Sector Operations Department (PSOD) is searching for project leaders and innovators in its mission to improve people’s lives in Asia and the Pacific through inclusive and environmentally sustainable economic growth. We are looking for exceptional project and corporate financiers or developers able to identify, structure and close innovative, developmentally and financially robust debt, equity and guarantee transactions. PSOD provides investment capital to private sector entrepreneurs, corporates and project sponsors, as well as financial intermediaries, such as banks, throughout developing Asia.
In 2016, we approved a number of new investments (including loans, guarantees, and equity investments) of which $2.5 billion was of our own capital and catalyzed an additional $5.8 billion from third party funds and commercial co-investors. Our projects span a broad variety of industry segments, such as renewable energy, agribusiness, SME finance, natural gas field development, private equity funds, airports and financial services, to name just a few.
Working in PSOD can be quite a challenge. Not only do we have stringent credit requirements when we evaluate whether an investment is commercially sustainable, we also examine the potential and measurable development impacts that a project can generate in a sector, country or region. And if a deal cannot generate tangible development l results, then it simply doesn’t meet the test of being an ADB investment opportunity. Beyond providing capital, ADB must add value in all transactions it undertakes.
We’re expanding rapidly, and looking for great talent to join our world-class team. Visit the ADB Career and Employment System (ACES) to apply for vacancies.
