Reference No. SF37

Reference Number: SF37


Job Description:


An exciting global Development Finance client is seeking to hire an Investment Executive with a focus on Technology & Telecoms to join their team.


Responsibilities:


  • There are 3 parts of the job (at all levels):

    • Origination – sector mapping, finding & evaluating investment opportunities, and building and maintaining relationships with companies.
    • Execution – analyzing companies in detail, conducting due diligence, navigating the Investment Committee process, agreeing legal terms.
    • Portfolio management – analyzing companies in detail, preparing for Board meetings, helping the companies wherever we can, preparing for follow-on investments, roll-ups and / or exits.

  • At Investment Executive level, you will spend the majority of your time on execution; by the time you are a senior Investment Executive you should be able to run with most of the execution stages largely unassisted. You will also be given some sub-sectors where you are responsible for origination and play a key role in portfolio management.
  • This particular Investment Executive position we are recruiting for will primarily focus on transacting in the US$15m+ later-stage venture and growth equity transactions end of the spectrum.


Requirements:


  • We are looking for candidates that will deliver from day one and who have the drive, ambition, and tenacity to progress through the ranks.
  • Typically, candidates will have a solid grounding in fundamental analytics (financial / commercial analysis, valuation, financial modelling) from private equity, investment banking or strategy consulting.
  • The successful candidate will likely have at relevant prior work experience; an MBA, or similar, is helpful. Evidence of prior exposure to the tech & telcos verticals is also a strong plus.
  • Over and above quantitative skills, analytical rigor and attention to detail, the softer skills we are looking for include:

    • ability to look at complex problems and get to the root of the issue.
    • ability to build relationships with companies.
    • ability to communicate clearly on paper and in person.
    • ability to multi-task.

  • Candidates will also need to evidence previous experience working in, or demonstrable passion for, Africa or South Asia, or at the very least an understanding of emerging markets.
  • Candidates should be strongly motivated by the organization’s development mission and ideally demonstrate some commitment to development or social goals through previous executive or non-executive activity.
