The market across IB has been somewhat patchy this year - busy but monetising the activity remains the challenge. The good news is that whilst most firms remain cautious, their pipelines are certainly picking up and the outlook for the end of the year and into 2017 is positive. Interestingly, FIG remains very busy, with a solid flow of M&A and financing transactions slated for the next 12 months. Out client is front and centre, servicing a wide range of clients across banking, insurance and asset management, as well as looking at activity in the FinTech space. The platform has outstanding leadership, with recent high profile hires adding considerable weight to their MD bench and creating some real momentum across the business. It's a good time to be looking at this firm for those still committed to IB - and there are many reasons why a career in IB is still preferable to the perceived greener pastures of corporate development or asset management.
A strong transactional background, ideally working with financial services clients is ideal for this position. Candidates will see themselves at Directors and possibly MDs in due course, with the composition of the team allowing this progression to be a realistic outcome, in a realistic time frame.
