  • Partnering with our Oliver Wyman functional and industry experts to develop comprehensive shareholder value creation playbooks
  • Working closely with other members of the ESV and Commercial Acceleration in a highly-interactive and participatory team environment
  • Contributing to the building of a new and growing business within Oliver Wyman

Required Skills
  • Strong equity market valuation skills, including knowledge of different valuation techniques (e.g., forward multiples, relative valuation, enterprise value)
  • Strong financial statement analysis skills, including the ability to disaggregate different measures of profitability into component parts and ability to assess various income statement, balance sheet, and cash flow metrics metrics (e.g., profitability, working capital, and operating efficiency metrics)
  • Ability to identify peers of a target company and perform quantitative benchmarking analyses
  • Ability to extract corporate strategy insights from news, earnings transcripts and other publicly available information
  • Strong written communication skills, with the ability to synthesize findings and develop a compelling story grounded in qualitative and quantitative insights
  • Advanced MS Excel skills

Desired Knowledge / Experience
  • Familiarity with:
    • U.S. GAAP accounting
    • Financial data sources (e.g., S&P Capital IQ, different SEC Edgar filings)
    • Public sources of information/intelligence for publicly traded companies (e.g., company quarterly earnings releases, earnings transcripts, and earnings presentations, company analyst day, shareholder and investor presentations)
    • Consensus estimates and the concepts of company guidance
  • Background and certifications:
    • 2-5 years of experience in either investment banking, corporate finance, corporate strategy, private equity, or sell-side or buy-side equity research
    • CFA Certification or graduate degree in Finance, or an MBA with focus in Finance, is a plus
  • Natural curiosity and interest in using data and financial analysis techniques to solve major business problems
