      The Analyst role is an entry-level position for the brightest and most capable university graduates. PegasusICS provides its Analysts with the specialist training that gives them a strong foundation in the skills they need to begin a successful career in investment banking. PegasusICS also offers summer Analyst opportunities for undergraduates in the summer before their senior year.

      The focus of Analysts’ time is spent working within small, focused teams on mergers and acquisitions advisory assignments, capital raising opportunities or restructuring assignments. Analysts are often able to work across more than one of the PegasusICS’s business practices over the course of the Analyst program.

The basic skills that our training program provides are continually developed by the experience of working with senior advisory professionals across a wide range of assignments.

      • Presentation work involves the formatting and initial writing of various PowerPoint presentations.

      • Administrative work includes scheduling and setting up conference calls and meetings, making travel arrangements and keeping a list of deal team members up to date

      Given the challenging nature of the Firm’s work and the high standards our clients and colleagues expect, PegasusICS looks to recruit only the brightest and most capable individuals.
