Investment Banking Analyst / Associate

 

 

Company

 Inner Circle Sports is a New York City-based investment banking boutique focused on advising on transactions in the sports, media, and entertainment sectors. Our scope of services consists of M&A and financing advisory, capital raising and valuations, among others, for clients including professional teams, leagues, and sports-related operating companies. With an opportunistic mandate, this is a rare opportunity to combine corporate finance skills within the sports, media, and entertainment industry. 

 

Responsibilities

You will play an integral role in the evaluation and execution of transactions within leanly staffed deal teams. Primary responsibilities will include screening potential engagements, conducting and managing the due diligence process, financial modeling, preparing client marketing materials, drafting internal evaluation committee memos on specific opportunities, and attending meetings or site visits with clients. The profile of relevant clients ranges widely, from mature, multi-billion dollar professional sports teams to emerging, venture stage sports technology companies in sectors like sports betting, esports or data & analytics. Accordingly, the successful candidate will have outstanding quantitative and interpersonal skills. This role will be given a great deal of responsibility and autonomy and will be expected to work in a self-directed manner. 

 

Qualifications

With approximately 1-2+ years of prior experience, the successful candidate will most likely come from an investment banking, investment research, private equity or hedge fund background and will also have a strong educational background. Although preferred, previous experience in sports, media and entertainment is not required. It is essential that the candidate be highly intelligent, energetic, and effective, and approach deals with a creative, opportunistic mindset. Experience with M&A, and an understanding of leveraged and structured finance is highly desirable.

On a personal level, the successful candidate must be highly self-motivated, resourceful, and comfortable working in a lean, loosely-structured entrepreneurial environment. 

 

Compensation

A market competitive salary plus a discretionary bonus based on performance. Baseline benefits are provided by the Company.
