With structural changes such as MIFID II on the horizon, we provide proper City/Wall Street analysts who have undergone apprenticeships by City masters. This means that our models and sector notes reflect the practical business world.
PRIVATE EQUITY / M&A
Our analysts create merger scenario models and reports, and can forecast out the implications of new capital structures.
Our analysts operate in counterparty credit, market risk and operational risk. For some risk clients, an in-house solution works better than consultants and so we also provide off-shore analyst training for captives.
DEVELOPING/ VALIDATING RISK MODELS
We provide analysts specialising in the models implementation of new banking regulations such as Basel II, Basel III, CRD IV, etc. Our analysts work across the entire range of disciplines: wholesale and retail credit, market and operational risks, and models development and review processes.
From high-yield to emerging markets to IG and SSA, we have deep experience in providing credit analysts. Outputs include morning notes that arrive at your desk when you do; buy-side company meeting preparation; results previews; quick takes and notes; and due diligence reports.
We have developed and proven a cutting edge recruitment process based on testing of carefully identified competencies, benchmarked against our deep experience. Interview elements are always structured and give much better outcomes than traditional unfocused chats with candidates. We have special expertise in the challenging area of recruiting offshore analysts who can work in a global context.
Banking skills can be learned: not just technical but also behavioural. Indeed, these skills are not innate in London, NY or any financial centre.
The value-added part of capital markets analysis is closely related to tacit and judgmental skills. Context and market history are key to good analysis.
Our training delivers this value added to a level on a par with training for capital markets analysts in the City of London or on Wall Street.
Our training is modelled on the apprenticeships which have been used for hundreds of years in the City and on Wall Street. A smart new apprentice works hard under a craft master to learn the technical skills, but more importantly the judgement required.
