Immediate vacancy for an Analyst / Associate in a rapidly growing corporate finance boutique. The Analyst will work closely with senior team members on all aspects of transactions, including M&A, fundraising and IPOs. The candidate must have strong business and financial acumen and excellent analytical and modelling skills.

Craven Street Capital is an independent corporate finance business. Our culture is built on a bedrock of strong relationships with our clients, other professionals and our employees. We are collaborative in our approach and value innovative and creative thinking and most of all have a passion for what we do.

Craven Street Capital was formed from the management buyout of PSource Capital Limited (“PCL”) in April 2017.  The management team has a 10 year track record operating as PCL, which was originally established in 2006 as the fund management and corporate finance business of Punter Southall Group, which remains a minority shareholder and client.

Craven Street Capital operates principally in three sectors: Financial Services, Energy/Infrastructure/Renewables and Healthcare. We undertake a broad range of advisory mandates that include M&A, IPOs, private placements, asset sales, debt financings including project finance, seeding funds and complex deal structuring. We look to have long term, multi-deal relationships with a small number of clients in our selected sectors.

Craven Street Capital is planning to grow its corporate finance business organically, by hiring additional junior employees every six to twelve months and developing staff. It is an exciting time to join the company and the individual will be well-placed to benefit from this projected growth.  We have a strong pipeline of interesting opportunities.
