  • Full time

You will be the main hub between Corporate Finance Advisory and ECM (private side) & Equity Sales, Salestrading and Research (public side). You will also have direct relations with the Buyside (Institutional Clients) and Issuers (Corporate Clients).

Our client is a tier 1 investment bank with their headquarters in Amsterdam. You will be working at their equity syndicate desk in a small team.

Equity Syndicate is the link between the public and private side within the Equity Capital Markets (ECM) chain. Equity Syndicate falls under the private side but is required to operate as the 'eyes and ears' of the public side.
Equity Syndicate exists as the main hub between Corporate Finance Advisory and ECM (private side), Equity Sales, Salestrading and Research (public side). It also cultivates direct relations with the Buyside (Institutional Clients) and Issuers (Corporate Clients).
Equity Syndicate work can be very high paced during times of deal execution, where you will be required to operate under intense time pressure.
Equally when no ECM transactions are in execution, you should be self-motivated and familiarize yourself with the Bank's Corporate and Institutional Client universe and help formulate equity solutions for the Bank's clients.
Equity Syndicate is part of ECM and Corporate Broking which falls under Global Markets. The Equity Syndicate team is a specialized entity within ECM and you will be working in a team of only 3 people.
You can be assured you will get a lot of client exposure and responsibility from an early stage onwards.
