TAS - DNA Senior Analyst- EPB

Transaction Advisory Services

Requisition # GGN000IT

Post Date Sep 27, 2018

Over the last 20 years, innovative new products have dramatically increased the complexity of the financial markets and of the business environment that our clients face, from stock options to compensate and motivate employees, to financing structures that allow institutions to repackage and transfer risk, to other more exotic instruments designed to meet almost any goal two parties can agree on. Given this increasing complexity, our clients have been under increasing pressure to understand and manage their risk. In addition, regulators have increased their focus on providing transparency to investors, via efforts such as the Fair Value standard (ASC 820 and IFRS 13).

Ernst & Young’s Valuation and Business Modeling Group, and our Complex Securities team in particular, has been growing rapidly to meet these challenges – with a commitment to a 'People First' culture that translates into a tangible emphasis on training, flexibility, and career development. We love what we do, and are passionate about delivering the highest quality results to clients. We succeed by hiring and developing the highest quality people and supporting them both professionally and personally throughout their career.

The Complex Securities Valuation team at Ernst & Young uses sophisticated techniques from financial engineering and decision analytics to assist clients in understanding and valuing complex securities and in managing risk, for financial reporting, corporate strategy, transaction support, tax and regulatory compliance. What differentiates us is an emphasis on supportable methodologies for estimating value and robust analysis to help our clients manage risk – avoiding the ad-hoc or high-level qualitative approaches that many companies use. We focus on developing innovative, reliable methodologies to fully capture the complexity of our clients’ situations. We work on a wide variety of projects, giving each team member the opportunity to gain exposure to the broad range of securities or to specialize in a few areas to develop deeper expertise. We also expect everyone on the team not only to be able to develop models but also to be able to explain the key drivers of value to clients – we do not have a separate “front office” and “back office”, but hire and develop people who can do both.

We currently have an opportunity for skilled practitioners to join our talented team, in Gurugram office.
