Over the past 10 years, NIBC has built a unique position in European Leveraged Finance. They focus entirely on private equity-originated transactions in the mid-sized North-west European segment. Their core clients are private equity funds, investing in companies with an enterprise value in the range of EUR 150 to EUR 500 million. Their target deals include MBO, MBI, re-capitalization and public-to-private transactions, in which they arrange and provide leveraged debt instruments, typically up to 60% of total enterprise value. NIBC Leveraged Finance consists of three teams, located in The Hague, London and Frankfurt.
To support the Leveraged Finance team in The Hague, NIBC is looking to recruit interns for a varied package of tasks. The interns will be directly involved in the overall deal process and support the credit analysis, credit structuring, as well as the execution of debt transactions.
The position of the intern within Leveraged Finance is characterized by a dynamic environment providing many intellectual challenges, including extensive financial and strategic analyses of target companies, the underpinning of complex debt structures, identifying the most important risks, and meeting tight deadlines. Leveraged Finance maintains contacts with a wide variety of private equity funds and professional advisors; and works with target companies that are about to become independent through an MBO, or are in strategic and operational change.
In assessing leveraged credit opportunities, interns will actively participate in performing company and sector analysis, financial modeling, due diligence reviews, structuring of debt instruments, and preparation and discussion of credit proposals. The intern will have a principal role in supporting the overall analysis and preparing of reports on the target companies, and will participate in internal meetings aimed to develop financing opportunities and make offers to clients.
NIBC employs top talent from diverse university backgrounds ranging from economics and business administration, to law or technology. Distinct education supplemented by activities showing affinity with finance and investment subjects (such as theses, business courses or extra-curricular activities) will be considered as well. Candidates should have advanced into or be about to start their Masters program.
