Would you like to be part of the leading Leveraged Finance franchise in the Nordics working with local and international private equity funds on LBOs and other financing transactions? We are now looking for an ambitious Analyst to join our team in Oslo.

As a Nordic leader, Nordea’s Leveraged Finance unit focuses exclusively on servicing the bank’s private equity clients in a broad set of financing situations, including leveraged buyouts, dividend recapitalisations and refinancings. Our team consists of 40+ professionals across the Nordics which, in close collaboration with relevant units in investment banking, is responsible for pitching, structuring, executing and ultimately distributing debt instruments to support our clients’ financing needs. We are uniquely positioned as the leading Nordic Leveraged Finance team with a product-neutral approach and our capabilities span across the full spectrum of debt solutions including bank financings, distributed loans and high yield bonds. 

About this opportunity 

Welcome to the Nordea Leverage Finance unit. Our team takes pride in having high work ethics and a positive and non-hierarchical spirit where all members of the team are encouraged to take on responsibility. Coupled with a strong client focus, we strive to provide first class advice and execution. This has been proven over the years through Nordea maintaining the #1 position in Prospera’s Acquisition Finance ranking for the Nordics for the past seven years.

Leveraged Finance enables professionals to experience a steep learning curve within an inspiring pan-Nordic team coupled with continuous client facing interaction. You will be exposed to many different sectors and transaction types, and will over time learn to understand a multitude of different business models, industries and transaction structures. As the Analyst, you will join in deal teams and take part in origination, structuring, negotiation and execution of debt transactions across a wide variety of sectors and types of debt. You will primarily be responsible for supporting our deal managers with financial analysis, preparation of relevant materials and supporting the transaction process. The role offers significant growth potential where more responsibilities are given based on performance and experience.

We are looking for a person in process of graduating or having up to 2 years of relevant experience. Prior experience from full time internship or employment within leveraged finance, corporate finance or analytical capital market units from Nordic or London based investment banks or private equity funds is beneficial.
