Current company: Capillar

Tell us about your career journey since you graduated from Glion and how it’s led you to your current position?

This is my first job after graduation from Glion. A career within finance felt like a natural choice for me, considering my general interest and the possibility to build upon my high school education in economics.

However, I did not have a predetermined plan on which path to take within the financial sector. I was aware of Glion’s good connections with companies in asset management, property valuation and the real estate sector; therefore, I always saw those as possible career paths. The specialization in Finance, in combination with my 5th semester internship, was what got me to focus on a job in M&A.

Describe your day-to-day responsibilities in your current role?

As an Investment Banking Analyst, I primarily focus on the M&A function within Capillar and also partly on the Equity Fund. The tasks are often related to business and financial analysis, industry research and valuation analysis. Additionally, I participate in all stages of a transaction, from pitching to closing a project.

Based on my general recruitment experience, I would advise current and future Glion students to utilize the extensive network that Glion gives access to.
