Investment Banking Analyst - Shareholder Advisory (New York)

Lazard's Shareholder Advisory group is looking to add an Analyst to its team of professionals. Our dedicated Shareholder Advisory team advises clients on preventive and responsive measures relating to shareholder activism, takeover defense, unsolicited and hostile approaches, corporate governance, shareholder engagement and other shareholder-related issues. The Shareholder Advisory team offers Analysts a unique and interdisciplinary experience that combines elements of strategy, capital markets, M&A, law, public relations and investor relations. The team's work affords a high degree of exposure to Lazard's other industry groups and offices around the world, as well as to senior bankers in Lazard's broader financial advisory practice.

Day-to-day responsibilities of the Analyst in the group are diverse and include developing materials used in live activist defense situations (e.g., investor presentations and fight letters); formulating internal/external marketing and client presentations; working with industry teams to prepare white paper exercises that simulate activist attacks; analyzing client shareholder bases and structural defenses; monitoring shareholder behavior and corporate governance best practices; and conducting shareholder, company, industry and activist environment research.

Candidates should have some prior experience in investment banking, corporate finance or capital markets or at a law firm, proxy advisor or corporate governance firm. Candidates should have the ability to think strategically about the broad range of challenges facing Lazard's clients, and should be top academic performers willing to work hard in an unstructured environment that values initiative, creativity, maturity, intellectual curiosity and enthusiasm for learning. Academic backgrounds may vary; however, candidates must enjoy a mix of qualitative and quantitative work and be comfortable with interaction with senior bankers.
