We also advise debut issuers such as Challenger banks and work alongside our M&A, transaction services, strategy and tax teams on complex engagements. Many of our execution mandates present an opportunity to act end-to-end, engaging with buyside investors including asset managers and private equity companies.

- Able to prepare and help present tailored financing strategies to our internal and external clients.
- Experience in execution of financing on either the buy or sell side, including pricing and documentation.
- Entrepreneurial and a problem-solver, able to demonstrate proactivity and independence whilst thriving in a close team environment. Resilient and highly innovative.
- Able to act as an ambassador for the firm and the team: professional, approachable and committed.
- Ability to build strong relationships with internal and external clients.
