What You Will Do

The Investment team identifies and reviews private equity primary, secondary and co-investment investment opportunities.

Second Year Investment Analysts continue to build on the skills attained in their first year however, as investment acumen develops; they take on more supervisory responsibilities. They oversee and review the work of first year analysts, and are expected to participate in a more sophisticated way on deal teams.

In their Third Year, Investment Analysts have developed their competencies, professionalism and investment acumen to the point where they take on a more experienced role on deal teams. They typically produce less individual work product but are expected to contribute at a higher level providing more insight into investment recommendations.
