Portfolio Risk Manager will conduct the risk analysis on FSD Africa investments pre and post transactions close.
During the investment preparation, the Portfolio Risk Manager will work with the investment deal team to review the investment opportunities, from a risk perspective. Risk is understood to encompass the risks that FSD Africa has zero tolerance for (i.e. promotor, reputation, financial and operational) but also the risk that FSD Africa is designed to take with regards to its investment mandate of financing un-proven and risky models that have a potential to transform financial markets.
These risks might include novelty, technology, regulatory, pre-ebidta, and market/country risks. Further the Portfolio Risk Manager will need to review each investments, post deal close, analysing and reporting on the financial, operational, reputational and market related risks, as well as strategic investment risk, and recommending and implementing the mitigating actions.
