Corporate Finance Associate – M&A advisory – Technology
CG Results is one of the leading boutique mid-market banks in the Healthcare and Technology sectors and to further strengthen our platform has recently joined forces with Canaccord Genuity. We are now CG Results and comprise the Technology and Healthcare team in the CG advisory practice but remain in our own offices in Fitzrovia.
This provides us with an even stronger opportunity to deliver greater value for our clients. Deal flow continues at pace and our team members will continue to accelerate their careers through gaining significant deal experience, whilst also being able to take advantage of all of the opportunities being part of a large global bank provides.
Joining us in London at an experienced level in the Technology team to grow your career is now possible for the right candidate. One of our key success factors is our proven passion, enthusiasm, and drive to work in these exciting growth sectors. So being able to demonstrate an interest in and some experience of the tech sector will be all-important.
As an Associate you will immediately be working closely with a Director or MD and Partner in a deal team, responsible for supporting all elements of the deal process as well as managing work streams on your own. With significant client exposure and the need to develop relationships with all stakeholders, both internal and external, this role carries a high degree of responsibility towards deal success.
You’ll hone your research, process and client-facing skills in understanding your sector fully; with a high level of attention to detail, financial and people skills alongside you’ll fit seamlessly into the team and your priority will be to learn as much as possible from the talented people around you.
Many of our team members stay with us longer than the industry average. We pay particular attention to how you can develop both your career and your skill set. This team is not one to ensure you ‘serve your time’, it will move you along your career trajectory as quickly as you can progress.
Our culture is still very much corporate finance with personality – we work to high standards but find time to have fun together too; social events (including the annual ski trip) are the norm. We are collaborative and collegiate and never compete internally; only externally and in pitches.
You’ll have experience of working in M&A advisory either as an Analyst or an Associate or exceptionally you may have worked in transaction services or similar elsewhere. Candidates are welcomed from both routes but either way you need to show an understanding of and enthusiasm for the Technology sector. Entrepreneurial spirit is always a significant advantage in our firm.
So, if a big faceless investment banking team is not for you, yet a career in corporate finance is, this is exactly your opportunity and you should apply right now with a tailored CV highlighting your experience match and stating which sector team you are keen to join.
We look forward to receiving your application.
Life before CG Results: My M&A career started as a summer intern at Goldman’s. I then joined them and spent four years as an Analyst and then Associate. The biggest deal I worked on was the Telefonica O2 deal in the early 2000’s. My contribution was taxi’ing all the documents from Partner to Partner for […]
Life before CG Results: I always wanted to work in Finance – I used to watch all the films like Wall St so I managed to get to LSE to study and then into the graduate programme at Bear Stearns, luckily leaving before the bad days. It was a while before I got into the […]
Life before CG Results: Being brought up in the Midlands (of the UK) meant I got stuck into every activity going; from ballet and ballroom to every sport you might mention. At school I had more of a knack for the sciences and chose to do a Bachelor’s degree in Genetics. I soon figured the […]
Life before CG Results: I grew up by the River Thames and went to the local grammar – I loved swimming and trained 8 times a week – although not in the river! I very nearly read Law at Uni and wanted to be a lawyer. It was a close run thing but switching to […]
Life before CG Results: Growing up in a little town on the Suffolk and Essex border my favourite activity was dancing – anything from tap to ballet to acro – see later. At school and in life my main interests centred around humanities; people and society so studying Sociology and Anthropology was a great choice […]
Life before CG Results: Early years in Huenxe, a small town near Dusseldorf, was followed by a very science focussed academic route. Deciding a lab wasn’t for me though, despite completing my PhD, didn’t take too long and I became increasingly keen on combining science with something more commercial so applied to CG Results and […]
