The best place to learn the craft

We seek entrepreneurial people who will rise to the challenge of becoming partner and are driven by building something greater, people that can independently manoeuvre themselves around all types of assignments.

We work with the most sophisticated clients in the Nordic market, both financial sponsors and industrials, that demand the highest possible quality in our advise. We therefore strive for intellectual excellence and variation in our organisation that can advise the introvert, the extrovert, the analytical, the “shooting-from-the-hip”, the leader, the follower, the structured, the messy and the “loose cannon”… Luckily the world is not a perfect place, the existence of corporate issues, problems and challenges is what justifies our existence.


We provide unparalleled transaction exposure and a steep learning curve. All our people should eventually master our craft and thrive on being a trusted advisor building long-term personal relationships. Our ambition is to offer our people a rewarding and flexible workplace. We believe in steep learning curves and that individual development comes from client exposure and responsibility.

We are currently looking for BSc and MSc graduates to join our Stockholm office as full-time Analysts with start in Fall 2022.

We are particularly interested in candidates:

•  who are keen on getting straight onto a steep learning curve towards understanding M&A, Debt and Corporate Finance

•  who wants to take on responsibility based on ability (rather than based on time spent in an office)

•  who enjoys working for a firm that respects and values your work-life balance


We are considering Swedish-speaking candidates with relevant education from top tier universities, in Sweden or abroad. We are looking for:

•  top class performers with proven analytical skills, ambition and a positive attitude

•  high professional integrity and sound business judgement

•  previous experience from investment banking, private equity or strategy consulting is meriting.
