  • Follow up on investment committee action points.
  • Follow up with the asset management teams on 3-month plans for new investments.
  • Arranging ad-hoc meetings to review portfolio company issues, including identifying issues for discussion.


The successful applicant will be an ACA qualified accountant (or equivalent) working in either a Big 4 or similar accounting firm within Corporate Finance, Transaction Services, Deal Advisory, M&A, Valuations teams or a similar area. You will have gained post-qualification experience in financial due diligence, ideally with a sector focus on telecommunications, transportation, energy, infrastructure or related.
