An encouraging culture that invests in you

As an Associate with the Professional Loan Program (PLP) team, you’ll play a key role in structuring, negotiating and overseeing your own pipeline of new professional loans while ensuring that client expectations are met throughout the process.


We created the Professional Loan Program to offer tailored loan programs to employees of our private equity and venture capital firm clients, to enable them to personally co-invest in the funds being raised by their firms. We also use the PLP to offer loans or lines of credit to prospective partners at professional service firms to finance their partnership equity purchases.

Partner with legal counsel on document negotiations and oversee the approval and rollout of new programs.

Assist the underwriters by obtaining all necessary documentation from the client, and help respond to any underwriting questions.

Manage existing relationships, including program modifications and credit reviews, and look for opportunities to educate clients about the Bank’s other offerings and how these products and services could help meet their financial needs.

Suggest enhancements to processes and procedures in order to improve efficiency.


You could be a great fit if you have:

A bachelor’s degree

Two or more years of finance/banking/lending experience
