CIB – Debt Markets – Structuring & Execution Group (Leveraged Finance) – Intern m/f/x


BNP Paribas Corporate & Institutional Banking (CIB) is a globally recognized leader offering financial solutions to corporate and institutional clients. With more than 33,000 people in 56 countries across EMEA, Asia-Pacific and the Americas, we offer solutions tailored to all our clients across capital markets, financing, treasury and financial advisory.

Within BNP Paribas’ CIB division, Debt Markets EMEA gathers a group of over 200 loan (structured and vanilla) and bond (investment grade and high yield) professionals located in London, Paris, Madrid, Frankfurt, Brussels, Amsterdam, Milan and Lisbon, covering the Bank’s core clients in Europe across all economic sectors. Debt Markets EMEA consists of three main teams: (i) Leveraged Finance Capital Markets (LFCM), (ii) Loan Capital Markets (LCM) and (iii) Investment Grade Debt Capital Markets (IG DCM).

Together, these teams are responsible for the origination, structuring, underwriting and execution of LBO and Leveraged Corporate financings, investment grade bond and loan financings to large corporates, and integrated financing solutions to midcap and sub-investment grade corporate clients. The Structuring and Execution Group supports all these activities.

Thanks to a team of over 10+ Debt Markets professionals covering all the above activities for the Iberian market (i.e. Spain and Portugal), BNP Paribas has ranked #1 in league tables over the last 3 years in leveraged loans in Iberia.
