Our client is a European focused activist long/short hedge fund, looking to add at least two (Senior-)Associate(s) to their London-based investment team. The role will cover mostly European markets across sectors such as Real Estate, Industrials, Financial Institutions and Natural Resources. The fund predominantly targets the small- to mid-cap space and firms with a market capitilisation between €1-7bn.
The firm targets smaller stakes, but will engage publicly to overall help the business grow and improve performance over time.
As a (Senior-)Associate you would be expected to take on new responsibilities quickly, enjoy working in a small, transparent and entrepreneurial team and be able to work independently. Every team member will be able to add to the decision-making process and will also have responsibility for several positions in the portfolio.
The successful candidate will most likely have 1-6 years of experience working in M&A, Equity Research (if relevant coverage), Private Equity or another relevant investment industry. Additional European languages such as German, Dutch, Italian or a Scandinavian language would be advantageous but are not essential.
