With the opportunity to deploy c. $500mn in the immediate future, the investments team are looking to add an Investment Director who will be able to assist and lead the team through all phases on the investment life cycle. As such, your day to day responsibilities will include everything from working across all phases of the investment life cycle, from deal origination and execution through to value creation and exit. You will be a key lynchpin in the team who will also be expected to help guide and develop junior figures within the firm, whilst managing multiple investment processes at the same time.
This Opportunity will offer you:
The opportunity to play a key role on deals across all phases of the investment life-cycle, from sourcing to investment and value creation to exit.
A strong and highly experienced group of senior individuals to learn and develop from, alongside a talented and driven group of juniors to work with.
Fresh capital of c.$500mn to invest from day 1.
An exciting and entrepreneurial culture within a growing and progressive firm.
High levels of responsibility within a lean team structure.
Broad geographical focus within the emerging markets.
Extensive experience within the financial services sector is a must, ideally within a broad range of verticals that exceed banking and insurance.
Candidates with previous PE experience will be looked upon favourably, but candidates coming straight from IBD will also be considered.
Experience working within emerging markets is ideal, and a strong interest in the area is obviously a minimum. Experience with Indian based companies would be particularly advantageous but is not required.
7-12 years' of total experience, with initial training likely conducted in a top investment bank or management consultancy.
Experience working across the full investment life cycle and the ability to execute both deals and portfolio development.
High energy, curious and 'comfortable with change' personality.
Great sense of ownership and pride of work.
The ability to think and progress quickly; equal aptitude for operating and executing as strategizing and analyzing.
This role is based in London, but the flexibility for occasional business travel is required.
