Our client is a fast growing, dynamic, Australian based investment platform. Strongly supported by local and international investors and led by a group of well-credentialed partners, it has already raised a number of funds across the alternatives space, targeting the mid-market. In conjunction with fresh fundraising, an opportunity has arisen to join the platform in a lead investment role, targeting credit investment opportunities with emerging companies, across a range of industry sectors.
This is an exceptionally rare chance to step into a lead role in a newly raised fund and is open to candidates from both the credit and equity worlds. Critical to the hire, is someone with the energy and business development skills to take full advantage of a rich corporate network that already exists across the platform and a high market demand for the types of investment the fund is targeting.
It will appeal to candidates who want to be front and centre in growing a fund from an early stage, building a network and being a partner in what is a very interesting, entrepreneurial enterprise. Experience in the distressed space may be advantageous, given current market conditions, but isn’t seen as a prerequisite.
Suitable candidates will be VP or Director level investment bankers or investors, ambitious and looking to take their next step up. You will need to demonstrate a natural capability to articulate what makes a good investment and be able to back that up with sound technical skills in analysing corporate structures and performance. You will be a natural networker, collaborative in the way you work with colleagues and entrepreneurially minded to your core!
7-12 years’ post-graduation experience in an investment bank, leading boutique, debt or credit fund.
