We need a fully Chartered Accountant to scrutinize potential portfolio companies. The person we choose will be an absolute wizard at financial modelling and able to support us in both the screening and execution of investment opportunities. They will be thorough and will be able to demonstrate to us that they have a strongly analytical mindset. Additionally, they will have a genuine interest in early-stage business and will get a real kick out of looking for the diamond in the rough. For someone who has qualified as an accountant and now wants to branch out into financial services, this is the perfect opportunity to grow professionally in a firm that has a great name in the Venture Debt arena and that takes exceptional care over the professional development of everyone in the team.
We are a team of highly skilled finance professionals based in London, Cape Town and Manchester, blazing a trail in the Growth and Asset Based Lending sectors through providing finance to innovative, disruptive SMEs. We are small, yet mighty, with our funds far outperforming our own ambitious targets. We seek an exceptionally bright investment analyst to help us to evaluate and decide on investment opportunities.
