Commercial Mortgage Broker is Hiring

Commercial Mortgage Broker Financial Compound to Hire Two Analysts

Financial Compound, based in Santa Monica, CA, has started to interview candidates to fill two available financial analyst positions.  Candidates should possess strong analytical skills and a desire to forge a career in commercial real estate finance.  The analyst position involves underwriting, packaging, placing, and closing commercial real estate mortgages and equity financings.  Commercial Mortgage Broker Financial Compound remains an innovator in identifying and structuring capital markets opportunities and as a result provides an unmatched real estate credit training program.

Prior to 2003 Financial Compound sought staffmembers with MBA and law degrees in finance or economics.  By 2005; however, Financial Compound had a paradigm shift with respect to its hiring practices and started to lean towards college graduates with majors in liberal arts.  Financial Compound had better success in training these folks in from scratch, as opposed to analysts with work or educational experience in the field who may have develop less than stellar habbits.  Financial Compound prides itself on its training methodology and materials and prefers an ‘open canvass’ to start working with.  More recently Financial Compound entertained some high school graduates who liked to read alot, and found these candidates also had the ability to perform well.  The key ingredient for success at Financial Compound is hard work and persistence.  For certain transactions we speak to more than 100 lenders and it is important for our analysts to embrace our philosophy of brushing off rejection and continuing to look for a lender who is a perfect fit for the transaction.  Post graduate candidates that Financial Compound interacts with may not always be scrappy enough to succeed in our ‘in the trenches’ forum.  Michael Schwartz of Financial Compound notes that “2011 has been one of our best years in history.  I know that we got lucky but at the same time, when you work hard enough, you create your own luck.”
