You're the brains behind our work.
Citi’s Institutional Clients Group (ICG) is looking for placement analysts to join the Investment Banking team for August 2023. The Investment Banking group advises corporate clients who want to raise funds in capital markets and who need strategic support in financial transactions. Initiatives you may be working on with clients include mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, financial restructurings, underwriting and distributing equity, debt and derivative securities. If none of these terms make sense right now, that’s ok! Our placement is designed to help you increase your knowledge, so whatever your degree is in we will give you the training and support you need to excel.
We’re committed to teaching you the ropes. During our 4 to 6 months placement analyst program you will be assigned to an industry or product coverage group, where you’ll focus on financial analysis and business development. Successful placement analysts will be considered for a full time position after graduation. You’re ready to bring your knowledge from the classroom to the boardroom and Citi wants to help you get there. Whether it’s honing your skills or building your network, we know that success can’t come without growth. Our programs equip you with the knowledge and training you need to play a valuable role on your team and establish a long-term career here. At Citi, we value internal mobility and career growth is not a question of if, but when.

Your time here will look something like this...
* Collect and analyze company information to assist transactions, including conducting industry research, revising and organizing financial data
* Analyze financial data and develop financial models including company valuations, discounted cash flow analysis, financing and comparative analyses
* Create and finalize new business development presentations
* Coordinate tasks with internal and external working teams
* Prepare required internal documentation e.g. control and compliance regulations
