Vice President/ Associate
We are seeking an Investment Banking Vice President/Associate who will be responsible for managing the day-to-day execution of a broad range of transaction types. This means managing multiple deals simultaneously, anticipating next steps, and becoming the Client’s trusted go-to person for daily interactions. A Vice President/Associate should be able to drive a process from beginning to end – pitch, pre-launch & marketing materials, due diligence, indications of interests and negotiations. Under AGC’s “divide and conquer” approach, a Vice President/Associate must add value above and beyond what is expected of the analysts, by proactively taking on tasks for the Partners and seeking out ways in which they can help balance the team’s workload. The Vice President/Associate is not just an editor, but can also guide the analysts through higher level work according to his or her capabilities and initiative. The position is for our Boston office.
Opportunity: The Vice President/Associate role at AGC Partners is designed for an entrepreneurial banker with the drive and self-confidence to build his/her own book of business down the road. This is an opportunity to build your own franchise leveraging the market presence of one of the leading technology boutique investment banks. Building on the extensive and varied transaction experience provided by AGC’s high-volume deal flow, and mentored by some of the industry’s most experienced senior Partners, you will have the opportunity to advance rapidly to the Partner position in just 4-5 years post MBA. Contrast our approach to that of the bulge-bracket banks with a 10-year, slave away, and wait-and-see track to Managing Director and you will appreciate the opportunity provided by our fast-track, merit-based path to a productive Partner franchise.
Qualifications: Recent MBA graduate or three to five years’ investment banking experience if no MBA. Applicants should also possess the below skills:
- Strong work ethic and passion for investment banking
