CP Analysts and Associates have the opportunity to work on investments across funds, providing a variety and volume of deal opportunities that ensure a robust learning environment.
BBH CP Analysts are actively involved in all aspects of the investment process from investment thesis formation, to investment structuring and closing, to portfolio monitoring and support, through exit. Day-to-day responsibilities include conducting industry research to develop and test investment theses; creating financial models with scenarios involving different investment, acquisition, capital structure, and acquisition assumptions; developing materials that present the deal team's thesis to the CP team and investment committee; conducting company due diligence; assisting in portfolio company performance monitoring and financing activities; and supporting strategic initiatives at portfolio companies.
