Job description


Portfolio Analyst | Climate

Climate Portfolio Steering Team
Nephila has been in the business of providing access to non-correlated exposure in the catastrophe and climate reinsurance markets for over 20 years, creating innovative solutions to address risk transfer challenges that face the markets and generate a valuable return stream for our investors.  With a consistent capital base of $10B, Nephila continuously looks for new opportunities, including a specific climate risk strategy in 2005 that now has a very strong track record.  Today, as Climate change and sustainability become an increasing focus in the markets, there is a lack of agile and innovative ESG focused solutions.  The Nephila Climate team is well positioned and supported to take advantage of the emerging gap by creating investment opportunities that deliver an ESG positive investment.

Nephila, over the years, has developed a deep platform that has scale and access to a large investible universe.  Nephila also has had a longstanding ESG commitment within the existing businesses.  The Climate team will continue to leverage this broader platform to set the market standard for developing, structuring and transferring Climate Risk to a diversified capital base. Our unique offering to counterparties and risk partners is a consultative approach that gives them access to scalable capital and more creative, flexible structures than the traditional market, that ultimately match their needs.  Critical to our future success is our ability to continue to look at and analyze the portfolio critically and create a feedback loop with our UW teams to ensure we are optimizing our investor returns.

Key responsibilities:

  • Create and run analyses on the existing portfolio (or indicative portfolios) to help improve decision making through the quantitative information available through your processes
  • Work with Climate team leads/members to drive out additional portfolio questions to be answered through the data; creating solutions to evaluate those questions efficiently
  • Support the feedback loop to our Climate UW teams by providing data driven insights regarding the overall portfolio performance
  • Assist in formulating materials that support “telling the story” to our investors regarding performance and broader strategy/plans


  • Analytical; can evaluate multiple sets of data and connect dots across them or see problems from many different angles
  • Can navigate ambiguity; comfortable not having / knowing the answers
  • Asks good questions; seeks to understand and gain insight
  • Authentic Communication; ability to tailor to different audiences

Our Ideal Candidate will have had experience working in a professional environment, specifically problem assessment through quantitative analysis, and will also have the following:

  •  Bachelor’s degree
  • 2+ years of experience in capital markets


Nephila offers competitive compensation based on experience and qualifications in addition to an attractive benefits package, including employer-paid health insurance, pension, daily in-office lunch, and wellness benefits.
