A&M is an environment that presents a real opportunity for ambitious individuals as all employees are encouraged to develop their client networks and business development skills.  High performing colleagues who successfully develop business for the firm are substantially rewarded in terms of additional bonus and career advancement.

The successful appointee will have:

  • Experience within the European debt markets either at a leading debt advisory firm, in banking or on a DCM desk
  • The ability to demonstrate experience leading assignments across a range of situations and products
  • The ability and inclination to manage senior client level relationships both at the height of a financing exercise but also through the periods between transactions
