Deal Executives are investment professionals, who typically have specialisms in particular industries (e.g. beverages, or fashion) or geographical locations. The firm recruits only applicants with outstanding academic records who are usually multi-lingual. All applicants are required to sit numerical and verbal reasoning tests as part of the hiring process and approximately three in four are rejected on their performance in that test, notwithstanding their prior academic record. All Deal Executives are graduates, and most have an MBA additionally. Prior experience in management consultancy, in another private equity house or within a top-tier investment bank. The individual will provide analytical and functional strategy support to the firm in respect to acquisitions and investments financed by current and future trends managed by the company. They will work closely in the UK team on domestic and international deals to identify creative and pragmatic options against potential market scenarios, developing conclusions, making strategic recommendations and developing plans to implement the agreed strategy from a UK perspective.
