One of the leading European Direct Lending Funds is currently looking to hire at the Investment Associate or Investment Manager level.
This fund is very specifically looking to hire from a leading strategy consultancy or from the transaction services teams of one of the Big 4.
This fund has an exemplary track record in the Direct Lending space. Being an early entrant into the market they are currently deploying their 3rd fund which is in excess of €1.5bn. The fund invests across the capital structuring (including mezzanine) and supports PE lead buyouts as well as company lead financing / refinancing.
The fund in question take a very different approach to investing with a lot of analysis into the company, their business model, the position within the market amongst many other factors. Each investment is analysed from a highly intellectual position and as a result the fund are looking to hire from backgrounds which would also employ similar deep analysis methods. The successful candidate therefore must come from either a leading Strategy Consultancy or one of the Big 4 Transaction Services teams where you have a proven track record of interrogating key details around a company / fund before making a decision or offering advice.
Whilst the background of the candidate is important the mindset of the individual is of equal importance. Given the rigour employed with all investments the successful candidate must enjoy intellectually stimulating work and must enjoy interrogating key information with a desire to make their own decisions on whether an investment is viable. At this fund it is the decision of all team members that count when it comes to investing so you must also be comfortable putting your ideas and recommendations forward.
Overall this is a unique opportunity for someone with the right background and interests to switch into a truly outstanding team who operate in a way which is both unique and highly successful. If you have a background in consulting / transaction services, enjoy analysing companies and an intellectual challenge please do apply to gain more specific detail.
