Job Description

Visionary Consulting Partners seeks a Re-Estimate Analyst to support USAID’s Development Credit Authority (DCA). Duties will be performed remotely (not necessarily in WDC). Performance is ongoing and as required.

Development Credit Authority (DCA) structures and issues partial credit guarantees to encourage private capital lending to creditworthy but underserved borrowers throughout the developing world. These guarantees, which typically cover 50% of realized loss, enable USAID to leverage private sector wealth for sustainable economic development. Since 1999, the DCA has supported over 574 risk sharing guarantees and has made available over $5.8 billion in private financing to more than 271,791 entrepreneurs around the world. The guarantee is a flexible tool that can be applied to a wide range of development projects and are available to virtually any type of lender seeking to deploy debt capital into the markets in which USAID programs operate.

Scope of Work
The selected candidate will join the DCA team in supporting the annual re-estimate process and other portfolio monitoring functions. Every year the financial condition of each active transaction in the DCA’s portfolio must be reassessed to accurately provision for potential defaults (losses). As part of this process, the financial condition of each partner must be reviewed, analyzed and re-estimated. DCA seeks a consultant to perform financial statement analysis and re-estimate support.

Portfolio monitoring is performed after a DCA guarantee has been obligated and signed. This function requires the analyst to review and approve loan schedules, analyze financial statements when required, monitor compliance of DCA guarantees and trouble shoot any issues that arise from these risk-partners.

Deliverables
The selected candidate’s deliverables will include:

Re-estimate analyses will require the review of DCA partners’ financial condition and will include the following steps to complete:
• Review and understand the auditor’s opinion on the financial statements. If necessary, investigate qualified audit opinions.
• Search the internet for any reports of fraud or other wrongdoing.
• Spread the most recent financial data into the relevant re-estimate spreadsheet.
• Analyze the financial condition of the entity and provide a brief write-up of that condition, highlighting financial metrics of interest and including any changes from the prior year.
• Make a recommendation as to any change to the risk score based on the analysis.
• Discuss work with the DCA Office as needed.
• Support other portfolio monitoring functions as needed.

• Knowledge of financial analysis and financial statements;
