Evercore Analyst Programme 2020
Evercore Analyst positions offer career experiences that we believe are unmatched in the industry. A position at Evercore affords a truly hands-on experience, working side-by-side with senior executives as they craft strategies, create opportunities and execute transactions on behalf of their clients. Working at Evercore is an opportunity to learn the investment banking business from executives who played key roles in shaping the industry over the past two decades and continue to architect current-day best practices and industry standards.
Positions are offered in Evercore's Advisory, Institutional Equities, and Private Funds Group businesses. We provide rigorous training and ongoing mentorship activities to ensure access to the firm's senior executives across disciplines and industry sectors.
Analyst positions are designed to provide individuals with a broad range of experiences. Responsibilities vary by business and may include projects in acquisitions, restructurings, recapitalizations, divestitures, partnerships, joint ventures, private equity, research, and sales and trading activities. As part of an Evercore team, you will participate in financial modeling and quantitative analysis, valuation issues, industry analysis and markets research, due diligence, as well as preparation for and attendance at client meetings.
About the programme
From your first day, you will be involved in meaningful work that is cerebral and calculated; focused on the long-term consequences of a decision, rather than the immediate monetary reward of getting a deal across the line. With only four or five people on a team at any one time, our analysts get huge exposure to senior colleagues with decades of experience.
Our full-time graduate analyst programme begins with six weeks of technical and soft skills training, ten days of which are at our New York office. During this time, there will be plenty of opportunities to network with peers as well as developing your new technical skills - ensuring you can add value to your team early on. As an Evercore graduate, you will have the chance to find the best fit for your future. During the programme, we offer two nine-month rotations, giving you the opportunity to experience varying team sizes and industries.
What to expect
You're part of a company that not only is global but feels global. Evercore's focus on the client means that every interaction counts. Relationships are long-term and strategic and are not delivered on a project-by-project basis.
Opportunities by business
Advisory - our Advisory programme consists of two nine-month rotations across our industry sector teams, generalist advisory, debt advisory and equity capital markets. You will work on mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings, financings, public offerings, private placements and other strategic advisory services to clients across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Restructuring - our Restructuring team provides advice on the creation of sustainable capital structures in circumstances where balance sheet difficulties have resulted from a combination of refinancing challenges, liquidity pressure and/or financial covenant breaches. The team has completed numerous high-profile transactions (including representing creditors on the $15bn amend and extend of Dubai World's debt and representing Ocean Rig in its $3.8bn restructuring) and has a constant flow of new and unique mandates in a range of different sectors and geographies.
