Req #: 180030100
Location: Chicago, IL, US
Job Category: Accounting/Finance/Audit/Risk
Potential Referral Amount: 0 US Dollar (USD)

Financial Modelling/Structuring Associate

Tax Oriented Investments Group - Energy Investments Team - Chicago Office          


The successful Candidate will be joining a very successful team of 20 professionals who are dedicated to investing in renewable energy projects, including wind, solar, geothermal and biomass power facilities. Since 2003 the Energy Investments team has invested over $10.3 billion of JPMorgan Chase's capital and raised more than $6.4 billion from other institutional investors in wind, solar and geothermal projects, making JPMorgan the leading player in the rapidly growing market for renewable energy tax equity. Working with our clients that include most of the major domestic and international renewable energy companies, the Energy Investments team expects to continue as a market leader as the renewable industry continues to grow as the federal government extends its commitment to energy independence and lowering America's carbon footprint.  JPMorgan earns both significant investment income and fees from these investments. Such investments are integral to JPMorgan Chase's environmental policy and underscore the firm's commitment to promoting wider use of renewable energy.


As part of an integrated deal team, the successful candidate will be responsible for performing cash flow modeling (including EBITDA, tax, economics, accounting, and various sensitivity analysis) to structure and analyze energy investment opportunities (principally renewable energy tax credit transactions).  The Candidate will be a key member of multiple deal teams at the same time and is primarily charged with modeling and structuring investments by utilizing sizable and intricate Excel spreadsheets.  Within this work, extensive analysis is performed on each transaction in terms of economic returns (before and after tax  and from both the investors’ and the clients’ perspectives) and accounting as well as how such transaction structures perform under various "downside" scenarios. The Candidate’s principal responsibility will be the economic modeling of each transaction, but his or her responsibilities can expand into all areas necessary to get a deal from the initial conceptual phase through to closing.  In that regard, the Candidate will have extensive client contact and interactions with internal management which require strong communication skills in order to convey the results of their analysis clearly and efficiently during meetings, through presentations and proposals, as well as summarizing due diligence issues and documentation.  Note that given the Energy Investment team’s current strong transaction pipeline and business need, preference will be given to those who already have experience in the Renewable Energy Tax Equity Market and related economic modeling.  A successful candidate will be a strong team player, capable of juggling multiple assignments at one time and equipped with applicable skills and experience to make an immediate contribution.


  • BA or BS degree required
  • MBA and/or CFA desirable
  • Strong analytical capabilities (including partnership tax and accounting knowledge)
  • Extensive economic modeling experience and a strong proficiency in Microsoft Excel, including moderate/ advanced formula composition skills (i.e., extensive “if’ statements and “look-up” formulas)
  • Energy related project finance experience is a plus and tax oriented renewable energy project finance experience highly desirable
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • A firm understanding of corporate finance required
  • Willingness to be flexible and desire to work in a fast-paced team oriented environment
