MORE ABOUT THIS JOB

INVESTMENT BANKING

 

Our division works on some of the most complex financial challenges and transactions in the market today. Whether advising on a merger, providing financial solutions for an acquisition, or structuring an initial public offering, we handle projects that help clients at major milestones. We work with corporations, pension funds, financial sponsors, and governments and are team of strong analytical thinkers, who have a passion for producing out-of-the-box ideas.

 

YOUR IMPACT

 

We’re looking for a driven, entrepreneurial Vice President to join a newly formed team within the Investment Banking Division (IBD). The IBD Innovation Lab is a cross divisional effort that will focus on generating ideas and content for our global corporate and sponsor client franchise.

 

Through roundtables and other Innovation Lab-hosted events, our goal is to create new opportunities for creative thinking and collaboration across the Division.  The Innovation Lab will facilitate discussions around thematic, cross-sector trends and produce actionable content for our clients.

 

The role will involve working with senior leadership in IBD to identify macro themes and trends which have an impact across sectors, and then generating ideas linked to them.  It would suit an individual who has interest in the trends which are shaping the corporate world, enjoys fundamental company analysis and can interact confidently with clients and internal stakeholders.

 

This is an opportunity to help build a new team which will have impact across the Division and differentiate our Firm.
