  • Build long lasting partnerships with clients and industry practitioners;
  • Develop sector expertise to advise clients on their strategic options; and
  • Provide innovative transaction solutions to our clients.

Working with your Corporate Finance team colleagues and alongside Client Coverage colleagues, you develop and maintain strong advisory relationships with our clients by combining sector expertise and financial knowledge with teamwork and flexibility. We offer you a working environment in which you will work intensively with different talents, keeping each other on our toes and enjoying each other's company.

In many instances you will share knowledge, insights and your advice with CEOs, CFOs and Heads of Business Development. It will be your responsibility to make strategic decisions in relation to mergers, acquisitions and divestitures and capital market activities.

As a deal team Captain on transactions you will also be responsible for the full origination and execution process of a complex merger, acquisition or disposal, including valuation, co-ordination of due diligence, as well as assisting the client in deal negotiations. On a deal by deal basis, you govern the transactional team of Corporate Finance team members and – where relevant – other product specialists, ensuring timelines and the client’s objectives are met.

As a senior team member, you contribute to the team’s business development activities. You demonstrate coaching potential by supporting junior team members and putting together relevant cross-disciplinary teams.
