You are a highly numerate junior professional with outstanding analytical skills and no more than 2 years of professional experience.
We expect you to be able to support senior investment professionals by quickly running financial analysis and modelling projects to highest quality standards in a fast moving environment.

Your professional background is most likely in the professional services, financial services or banking industries. Professional real estate background is desired, but not a must have.

As an investment analyst, you will be very close to the action, will see quite a variety of work, and you are expected to be ready to travel within Germany and, to a lesser extent, in Europe.

Fluency in English is an additional requirement.

As you will work as an integral part of the nimble Frankfurt team, you are expected to be “hitting the ground running”, both in terms of your existing work experience and your integration into the Frankfurt team.
The work environment is quite intensive, and long hours can be required at times. A “can do” and highly results oriented attitude will be much appreciated.

Your work will be rewarded by significant experience that you will gain from day one, the close contact to highly experienced senior investment professionals, and results-oriented compensation.

For more information, please contact Volker Ollesch at ESCP-EAP Alumni eV (

Candidates who fit the required profile will be invited for telephone and personal interviews in Frankfurt, interviews will be conducted in German and English. The successful candidate may start working as early as 1 October 2006.

We very much look forward to hearing from you.
