Senior Associate

We are currently recruiting a Senior Associate (f/m/x) to strengthen our Investment team in Antwerp.

What will be your impact?

The purpose of the role is to own areas of a deal and investment process with minimal input whilst delivering finalised output yourself. You will proactively contribute to the deal and investment process by managing your own timeline. You may already manage parts of a deal and investment process depending on your experience and the business area. You build and maintain strong relationships with middle to senior level staff internally and externally. You will start participating in pro-active deal sourcing with your own ideas and actively contributing to successful deal conversion, mainly in buy & build for our portfolio.

The role of the Senior Associate will be involved in:

  • Conducting market and industry research.
  • Finding new investment opportunities which you have sourced and review them.

  • Supporting due diligence processes.
  • Supporting acquisition and growth strategies of portfolio companies.
  • Following-up of the portfolio companies.
  • Preparing and executing potential exits.

This role is highly varied and involves working in a supportive, dynamic team. The projects you could work on offer continuous learning, increase your knowledge of the PE industry, and support you in growing your future career with us.

You will be in regular contact with new investment opportunities, as well as with existing portfolio companies, requiring travel on a national and sometimes international basis but we are always mindful to work these around your personal commitments.
