Many Associates join the generalist pool, based in our New York office, and work on a range of projects across corporate finance industry groups and our Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) department. If you have experience or interest in a particular sector, we attempt to accommodate your preference when making project assignments. Additionally, our New York-based Real Estate Banking, Latin America and Financial Institutions Groups hire directly. Opportunities are also available in our regional offices located in Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Menlo Park, Mexico City, San Francisco, and Toronto.
All new Associates participate in an orientation program, covering the Firm’s businesses, the transition from an academic setting to a corporate environment, and opportunities for establishing a network throughout the Firm. Investment Banking Associates then participate in a comprehensive four-week training program in our New York office. During the Program, Associates learn corporate valuation methodologies, financial statement analysis and modeling from accomplished instructors, bankers and university professors. Associates are trained and required to complete mandatory regulatory exams (i.e., Series 79). They will also have the opportunity to network with senior officers within the Investment Banking Division and throughout the organization.
