You will come to the office at 9am when we start our regular working hours. You will have a mixture of urgent short-term tasks and long-term responsibilities. The majority of your work will be on active M&A engagements, while some of your work will be related to business development. You will work on all stages of M&A projects and the work will differ depending on the project type and stage. For example, when we are representing a buyer in the initial stage of an M&A project, you may be asked to research and contact target companies. When an M&A deal is in the early stage of deal negotiation, you will work with the team to carry out valuation analysis and to develop a recommended transaction structure. In the later stage of negotiations, you will help to manage the timetable, liaising with various parties and reviewing the closing legal documents.
Analysts are expected to take ownership of their assignments and to work hard. You will need to keep in touch with your supervisor and teammates outside regular working hours and be available to work late as needed. Investment banking is a demanding and fast-paced industry that is not for everyone. However, we at DRP manage to strike a good work-life balance and think that you can too.
