About our client
Our client is a newly launched private equity fund focusing on the environment and its preservation. The investment thesis is that companies providing environmental solutions should deliver a consistent return premium over the long term, from which investors can benefit, without compromising on financial performance and returns. Investment due diligences therefore include the measurement of environmental KPIs through a tailored framework, along with other standard financial, commercial and legal metrics.
The investment framework is therefore very wide, covering Europe, North America and Asia, and segmented around five verticals: greenhouse gas reduction, pollution control, the sustainable consumer, circular economy and other enabling technologies. The fund invests in and along with top-rated GPs in this field, and is able to deploy capital across all stages: venture, growth and buyout.
What the job involves
  • Identifying and evaluating attractive investments with strong emphasis on greenhouse gas reduction, sustainable consumer, pollution control, circular economy and enabling technologies
  • Researching industries and companies and creating detailed models to highlight relevant metrics to be used in the investment decision-making process
  • Producing quantitative and qualitative analysis of companies and diligence information to support investment conclusions
  • Identifying industry trends, challenges and opportunities
  • Monitoring the ongoing performance of portfolio company investments
Who we are looking for
  • Preference for an Engineering degree, from a top-tier university or a PhD in an environment-related topic
  • Experience in investment banking and/or in private equity industry (direct investments).
  • Fluency in English, any other European languages an asset
