Responsible - Reliable - Hands-On

TIME TO STEP INTO THE RING

Private equity is a highly intensive business. Many decisions are critical but often have to be taken quickly and implemented rigorously.

 

Doing the job we do requires both, strong analytical skills - a passion for problem solving - and empathy. Private equity is foremost a people business in which you work in teams facing challenging, critical and in most cases also decisive situations. This is where the responsiblity comes in. Your decisions will drive investment performance, but even more important, they will have direct impact on the portfolio company and on the people working in and for these companies.

 

If you are interested in intellectual challenge, are determined to achieve and ready to assume a high level of responsibility, you should learn more about us.
