Prestigious Front Office Roles

Investment Banking, Private Equity and Equity Research are considered among the most prestigious careers in finance because of their strategic and global nature, and of course, the extensive financial rewards that come with it.

Continuous Learning

As you progress from Analyst to Associate all the way to Executive Director or Partner, your learning expands from being analytical to becoming a trusted advisor and investor to your clients allowing you to master every aspect of Corporate Finance.

Exposure across Industry and Products

Transactions in Investment Banking are rarely one-dimensional and usually require you to have a thorough understanding of not just finance but strategy, marketing and even operations. Private Equity players cut across industries and domains and so acquire a comprehensive view of global markets, industries and economic trends.

Global Mobility

Mobility opportunities in Investment Banking and Private Equity are enormous as deals in Investment Banking are often cross border and multi dimensional in terms of structuring, providing you exposure to leading multinationals, global products, as well as extensive global travel.
