This is the defining point in your career, as you choose which path to follow. As an accountant with a transactional background you are perfectly placed to make the move to the buy side – just don’t take too long to commit!
In private equity you get to work on the acquisitions of interesting businesses, roll your sleeves up, get a deep understanding of the firm and drive positive, profitable change.
In 2016 we placed ten ACA qualified candidates into investment team positions with mid-market private equity firms. This year we have already placed eight and with many more opportunities on the horizon, now is your chance to start your new career.
