Ernst and Young’s Valuation & Business Modelling team is looking to expand its existing Complex Securities business to capture exciting opportunities, particularly within the Private Equity, Capital Markets and Energy industry sectors. As a result, we are looking for an Assistant Executive with strong financial engineering skills to grow our team to the next level.

We apply quantitative financial techniques to assist clients in valuation of financial derivatives and other complex assets, for financial reporting, tax compliance, transaction support and corporate strategy.
