Private Equity Placement Analyst 6-month internship opportunity

Background

Athos Partners is an independent placement advisory firm dedicated to assisting leading mid-market private equity fund managers. Since 2011, the firm has raised 33 European private equity funds with a 100% success rate.

The firm has remained committed to its core strategy: advising exceptional growth, buyout and special situations managers with superior return profiles. The team has successfully advised both well-established and emerging managers and tailors its services to each client’s specific requirements. Leveraging on its longstanding relationship with leading institutional investors worldwide, Athos Partners has been able to position itself as the preferred partner for mid-market private equity fund managers.

With a team of twelve, led by two experienced Partners who have been working together since 2008, Athos Partners has developed a highly differentiated and hands-on placement approach in which all team members participate in origination, execution and distribution. This approach has been proven successful in an increasingly competitive environment. In response to the increasing demand for its services, Athos Partners has recently opened its second office, located in the US.

To continue its rapid growth in Europe, Athos Partners is looking for ambitious candidates to join its team in Monaco. Candidates should have a strong interest to work in the private equity placement realm with prior full-time or internship experience within private equity, corporate finance, investment banking, management consultancy, audit or transactions services.
