Join Us as a Private Equity Associate

Brown Brothers Harriman & Co. (“BBH”) is seeking to hire a Private Equity Associate to join the BBH Cedar Street Equity (“BBH CSE”) team. BBH Cedar Street Equity primarily invests in lower-to-middle market companies alongside private equity fund managers through traditional co-investments and recapitalizations. BBH CSE’s investment strategy creates diversification across fund managers, industries, geographies, business models, and companies of different sizes to achieve strong risk-adjusted returns and mitigate downside risk. This opportunistic and efficient approach to private equity investing provides for a robust learning environment alongside a veteran investment team.

Key Responsibilities:

BBH CSE Associates are actively involved in all aspects of the investment process from deal sourcing to investment diligence and research, transaction structuring and closing, portfolio monitoring and support, and exit.

Day-to-day responsibilities can include:

* Conducting due diligence on live investment opportunities
* Working with financial models, analyzing scenarios with different capital structures and operating performance and acquisition assumptions
* Developing presentation materials summarizing investment perspectives for investment committee review or approval
* Assisting with portfolio company performance monitoring

In BBH CSE’s consensus-driven culture, all team members – including Associates – are asked to share their perspectives on new investments with the entire BBH CSE team and will also have the opportunity to interact with other third-party fund managers, company management teams, and other stakeholders.

Qualifications:

* BS in Finance or equivalent
* Track record of exceptional academic performance
* 2-4 years of Investment Banking, Private Equity, or other M&A related finance experience
