Due to continued growth and strong deal flow, Acuity Advisors are looking for VPs to join the team at a very exciting time. As an Acuity VP, you will work closely with an Acuity Partner to lead the successful delivery of sell side, buy side and fundraising transactions. You will lead the preparation and co-ordination of key project deliverables, including information memoranda, business plans and client presentations, providing detailed industry and company analysis, financial modelling and analysis of transactions. You will lead client presentations and meetings.
This is an opportunity to work alongside a highly motivated Partner team in a forward-looking and collegiate environment.
