Investment Intern Private Equity
(Fund Investments)

A UNIQUE INTERNSHIP:

On a daily basis, our job is to seek the best private equity teams in the European market and invest together with them through tailored fund structures or direct co-investments. With this mindset, we have committed over €1.5bn of capital to Europe’s most successful small- and mid-market private equity teams and distinguished ourselves as the clear market leader in anchoring and creating first-time funds.

We have successfully incubated some of the best performing private equity teams across Europe and take an active role in defining investment strategies and growing solid investment firms. As a direct consequence of investing with emerging managers, we are actively involved in buyside processes of co-investments and therefore our role is a mix between being a fund investor and a direct buyout investor.

We are currently looking for an enthusiastic and ambitious student to join our Fund Investments Team (European coverage) for a period of 4 months up to 6 months. The position offers an opportunity for bright, creative and motivated individuals interested in interning within a highly successful and international private equity firm. Throughout the internship you will experience similar levels of exposure compared to a first-year Investment Analyst and you will be considered a full member of the team. Your tasks and responsibilities will comprise, but will not be limited to:

  • Research and analysis of fund investment opportunities (primary and secondary) and co-investment opportunities, with an emphasis on strong performing fund managers
  • Analyzing funds down to portfolio company level and assess market trends
  • Supporting the preparation of investment memoranda and attending Investment Committee meetings
  • Supporting fundraising by preparing presentation and marketing materials
