The Underwriter will provide direct underwriting support to local program offices in the field and serve as the primary underwriter for investment projects across LISC’s markets and nationally. The Underwriter will have deep knowledge of public and private resources available to leverage LISC’s investment and will provide support to strategically deploy LISC Fund Management’s full array of financing products through its portfolio of impact investment funds.

Director, Small Business Loan Funds
Strategic Investments runs several loan funds that function essentially as a secondary market for mission-based small business
lenders (generally Community Development Financial Institutions or CDFIs). These funds provide liquidity by purchasing the majority of small business loans made by those organizations. Payments from the small business borrowers are then used to repay investors in the loan funds.
This role (which sits within the Fund Performance & Measurement team) will liaise between the originators and the investors around loan purchases, payments, and performance reporting. This position may supervise a direct report.
