You will be joining the leading sustainable finance house. Acting in both a proprietary and advisory capacity we are like a green bank but better. We channel capitalism as a force for good, supporting sustainable and socially good economic activity with green and social finance. You will be leading the development of our equipment, vehicle and asset finance function. Asset finance is an underutilised area within sustainability and the green economy. We need someone who already understands, or who can quickly understand, how we can apply these conventional financial products to solve problems within our sector.

The Challenge:

 

Conventional finance products which would help sustainable & green companies are underutilised as conventional banks have yet to seize the opportunity they represent. You would be leading our expansion of these products outside of our existing client base and helping set an example the rest of the industry will follow 

About us:

You will be joining the leading sustainable finance house. Acting in both a proprietary and advisory capacity we are like a green bank but better. We channel capitalism as a force for good, supporting sustainable and socially good economic activity with green and social finance.  

You do not need to have experience in our sectors but if not you must have a genuine interest and desire to transition to this space. All of our team are believers and that is more important to us than relevant sector experience. 

We are well funded with a strong balance sheet. We also provide intellectual as well as financial capital in order to maximise our impact. We deploy our own proprietary capital and provide corporate finance / investment banking services to more broadly support our ecosystem.  

We are active in debt, equity and everything in between and you will work on a range of transaction sizes. If we think that something ought to be funded then we will work to deliver a solution to make that happen. 

If you believe doing well and doing good don’t have to be incompatible then working with us could be the opportunity for you.

  • Have committed to joining a team full of passionate, like-minded people
