  • Semi-annual valuations of the portfolios, together with review of financial model updates from project companies;

  • Updating fund forecast models to look at future projections for business planning, modelling of equity returns and key commercial and financial inputs (including debt facilities and further equity capital raisings);
  • Support the origination, analysis, structuring, documentation and execution of infrastructure investment opportunities with a primary focus on Europe, with flexibility to work across other target regions;
  • Other analytical, research and modelling support for the team including competitor analysis and market reviews;
  • Assist in managing and reviewing all due diligence and structuring work-streams including the management of financial, legal and technical advisers;
  • Assist in preparation of presentations of investment opportunities to the investment committee;
  • Participate as required in reporting processes.
Candidate profile

We expect the ideal candidate to have the following attributes:

  • Relevant infrastructure knowledge – i.e. internship/s with  developer, adviser, industrial sponsor, infrastructure fund, project finance advisory and/or lending institution;
  • Fluent in English and at least one of the following European languages - French, German or Dutch;
  • Excellent financial modelling skills, with an eye for accuracy;
  • Analytically rigorous and detail oriented particularly with regards to numerical analysis, legal documentation and written reports;

  • Have an enthusiastic and tenacious approach with a strong commitment to learning;
  • Able to manage involvement in a number of simultaneous initiatives, deliver work to agreed deadlines, and work well with a variety of individuals across a complex and evolving business;
  • Educated to a degree level and above and can demonstrate a strong academic record.

 The successful candidate may also demonstrate some of the following personal attributes:

  • Problem solving oriented and keen to use personal initiative
