Corporate Finance (M&A Advisory) Director or Senior VP – Healthcare
Recently joining forces with Canaccord Genuity CG Results has one of the largest specialist mid-market healthcare teams in London boutique investment banking, CG Results has a compelling proposition to both clients and potential team members and the merger has further strengthened our platform. We are now CG Results and comprise the Technology and Healthcare team in the CG advisory practice, remaining in our own offices in Fitzrovia.
A recent promotion to Partner and another to MD has created an opportunity to join the team at a senior level. Our success lies in having a team of highly experienced advisory team members with strong deal sheets in either an advisory boutique or a successful big 4 practice and this is exactly what we are looking for. Unfortunately, pure buy-side or working as an FD would not be sufficient experience for this role.
Healthcare is not a pre-requisite although a curiosity and interest in the space is. You might see this as an ideal time to begin to specialise in a sector in a counter-cyclical sector which has proven very buoyant and will continue to be, namely healthcare and life sciences. It is hard to rival both our creds and deal flow in this space, which will lead to you quickly assimilating the market for yourself.
You’ll take full day-to-day responsibility for deals, from strategy and tactics at the pitch, developing strong relationships with the key client team members and working with VP’s, Associates and Analysts to ensure the deal progresses as it should, managing all key stakeholders along the way. There is, as you would expect, significant client contact and your interpersonal skills along with technical competence need to be strong.
You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to the strategic direction of the healthcare team and develop your own interest and knowledge of your own sub-sector working with other team members to further business development efforts with both clients and private equity. However this role is primarily execution but with the opportunity to business develop alongside when the opportunity arises for which we also offer strong development.
A key element of working at CG Results is our ability to enable people to achieve their career goals. We can show you a clear pathway to the next step and we’ll support you to the hilt with development to do that. Promotion here is down to your capability and drive, rather than time served. It’s a great place to work, where people matter and a work life balance is important so if you are unsure that endless long hours for no reason and a stifling environment are right for you this is definitely an opportunity to explore further.
If our growing team sounds like the kind of environment that would work well for your next career step, send us your CV as soon as possible so we can start a conversation.
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 […]
