Job description

Blackstone’s private equity group offers analysts the chance to engage in the direct acquisition of large and midsized companies in a variety of sectors worldwide. The investment process develops both the financial skills of investment banking and the strategic thinking of management consulting. As a result, this analyst programme offers a unique experience among financial firms, enabling our analysts to develop a well-rounded and fine-tuned business mind.
Analysts at Blackstone have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of projects and be staffed on a number of assignments at once. Due to the relatively small size of the professional staff, analysts can assume integral roles on deal teams. Analysts are involved with the development, structuring and financing of transactions and regularly attend internal meetings, negotiations and due diligence sessions.

Responsibilities
Primary responsibilities will include:

  • Financial analysis and modelling
  • Investment research
  • Competitive analysis
  • Assistance in the execution of transactions
  • Drafting of memoranda for internal and external use
  • Communications with portfolio company senior management

Analysts will work on a wide range of transactions including acquisitions, divestitures, joint ventures, restructurings, recapitalisations, private placements and leveraged buyouts.
