WHAT YOU WILL DO
Research: This individual will be responsible for executing targeted projects to understand the markets in which direct outreach will occur. This will consist of identifying leadership, market fit, main drivers of value, and more in companies using various databases and internet research. Research will help analysts develop knowledge of multiple industries and trends.
Outreach: This individual will be responsible for creating and executing a strategy with the result of engaging a business owner in a discussion of an acquisition. This will be a combination of emailing, calling, and other creative outreach. These conversations will be directly with CEOs and other C-Suite professionals and help develop strong communication skills. Analysts will deliver an Alpine or relevant portfolio company pitch with the goal of establishing a baseline of investment compatibility.
Investment Evaluation: After establishing contact with a business owner, this individual will conduct the initial evaluation of a new opportunity, process Non-Disclosure Agreements, and pitch investment opportunities to our internal team. A strong understanding of Alpine’s investment criteria will be required. Over time, analysts will develop their own investing judgment and, as sourced opportunities progress, will gain exposure to the due diligence and negotiation processes required get to a closed deal.
Candidates must be excited about a role where they will be on the phone/Zoom for a significant portion of the day and where research, cold calling and cold emailing are required.
