M&A Valuations - Analyst / Senior Analyst


Do you have a strong financial skillset and sound commercial acumen? Can you demonstrate a passion for understanding businesses, industries and capital markets and how value is created and communicated?

The question of ‘Value’ consistently underpins the decision-making process of Boards, management, investors and other stakeholders. Our specialist Valuations team in Adelaide provides value related advice, assisting clients in managing value throughout the business cycle in circumstances relating to M&A transactions, financial reporting, tax, litigation and management decision-making.

Due to continued growth, we are currently looking to enhance our Adelaide based M&A Valuations team with a talented Analyst or Senior Analyst who can demonstrate an ability to thrive in an environment where we are often asked to assist clients with their most complex valuations problems.

About the Role

The role will provide you the opportunity to build a technical skill-set whilst working on a range of complex engagements such as high-profile transactions involving ASX-listed corporates and iconic private companies, unique business/asset valuations involving intellectual property and complex valuations involving bespoke modelling and analytics.

More specifically, working in a supportive and collegial team, you will be involved in the following:

  • In-depth company, economic, industry, capital markets and competitor research, data analysis and benchmarking
  • Employment of various valuation methodologies such as discounted cash flow, earnings multiples, excess earnings, comparative sales and replacement cost methods, capital asset pricing model, etc
  • Bespoke financial modelling to facilitate the valuation, including scenario/sensitivity/statistical analysis
  • Preparation of valuation reports, exhibits, letters and other client deliverables
  • Participation in business development initiatives.

About Your Experience

Our preferred candidate is a natural collaborator who is able to think unconventionally, apply commercial thinking and challenge the status quo in designing solutions to real and technical problems. We seek (and reward) talent with a strong problem solving attitude founded on the use of innovative solutions. The ideal candidate will be able to demonstrate:

  • A minimum 12 months’ experience in a financial environment
  • Bachelor or Master degree in finance, economics, mathematics, actuarial or data science, with an interest in undertaking a relevant post-graduate qualification (e.g. CA, CFA, MBA or Masters in Finance)
  • Strong MS Office skills (including Excel, PowerPoint and Word)
  • Competency in, and a keen interest in further developing, complex valuations/modelling or data analysis including the use of Visual Basic, SAS, Monte Carlo, etc
  • Strong verbal/written communication and interpersonal skills.
