We are working with a large, global investor and asset manager which is looking to expand its direct lending team in London by adding a new Associate. The group works predominantly on sponsor led deals, providing senior and 2nd line financing across Europe.
Conducting financial due diligence on private credit investment opportunities by obtaining, reviewing and evaluating third-party due diligence reports
Performing industry, company and lead sponsor research and conducting in-depth valuation analysis of private companies
Working with the deal team in preparing due diligence materials and developing balanced, fact-based investment committee recommendations
Reviewing and monitoring the ongoing financial performance of portfolio investments
Associate level leveraged finance experience from an investment banking environment is essential - experience from a direct lending environment would also be considered
Excellent financial modelling skills and credit knowledge are also integral
An additional European language would be additive but is not a must have
