We are currently looking to hire candidates for our Fall internship (August-December). The ideal candidate would be available for at least 16-24 hours each week. Research Interns support Director-led, specialized teams in deal generation efforts. Using qualitative research methods, Research Interns utilize the internet, on-line databases (ex. Capital IQ, Hoovers, etc), industry association company lists, and our own proprietary database to identify privately held businesses for acquisition strategies. Responsibilities include identifying and profiling potential acquisition candidates and/or Fortune 500 CEOs for our blue-chip list of private equity group, corporate, and hedge fund clients. This is the important initial step in a process that leads to change of control and minority investments on the equity side, and distressed acquisitions and new issuances on the debt side. Expectations include making outbound calls to verify information when appropriate but do not involve financial modeling.
- Introduction to the dynamics of the Mergers & Acquisitions industry
