Throughout his career, he has specialized in risk assessment and mitigation in various capacities. Mr. Kim has 20 years experience in finance, most of which has been focused on deal-execution. He has underwritten transactions with more than $65 billion of notional volume in the field of structured finance across a wide spectrum of asset classes and financing structures, including ABCP, warehouse and revolver, secured lending. These roles have required a combination of credit analytics, ability to assess specialty finance companies, origination and servicing platforms, asset managers, business development, complex structuring and negotiations. 

Prior to joining FTI Consulting, Mr. Kim founded Pine Lakes Capital, a quantitative advisory and consulting firm, where he advised clients with respect to loss mitigation and asset valuation in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.

Before that, Mr. Kim spent 14 years at Financial Security Assurance (FSA), a financial guarantor, where he was responsible for business development and underwriting securitizations covering a broad range of assets, including CDOs; consumer ABS, such as prime and sub-prime auto, student loan, credit card, boat and motorcycle; commercial ABS, including bus and truck; and esoteric assets, such as natural gas and royalty receivables. Originally focused on the consumer and commercial ABS sectors, Mr. Kim’s responsibilities expanded to include the CDO sector. Over the last seven years at FSA, he worked with more than 50 asset managers, underwriting broadly syndicated and middle market CLOs; CLO^2; market value CDOs; multi-sector CDOs; CBOs, including corporate bonds and emerging market sovereign debt; correlation trades, such as investment grade and high yield; index-linked trades; and other corporate transactions in both cash and synthetic form. In addition, Mr. Kim was a chief contributor in developing underwriting guidelines for several of these sectors.

Earlier in his career, Mr. Kim worked for GE Capital in the Retailer Financial Services group.
