About Valitas

Valitas is an elite boutique investment banking firm that applies best practices from the leading global investment banks and private equity funds. While our work environment is rigorous and fast-paced, our culture is unlike other investment banks. We work in small teams to deliver mission-critical projects for a few select high-performing clients. We are results focused with industry-leading processes and performance measurement. This structure and clarity allow our team members to operate autonomously. Combined with superior work-life fulfillment, this environment unleashes the creative problem-solving potential of each team member. If this is appealing to you, Valitas may be the place to launch your career.


We are seeking two exceptional individuals to join our team as Incoming Investment Banking Analysts, starting on January 3rd, 2023. Successful candidates will gain exposure to various Valitas projects during the first six months, after which we aim to extend career opportunities to top-performing analysts that fit with our culture and values. If you want to learn about M&A and corporate finance, this program offers superior professional development and more client exposure, when compared to similar roles at other firms:

▪ Interaction with and mentorship from the founder and senior team members;
▪ An entrepreneurial, transparent, high-performance culture that rewards excellence with rapid career advancement; and
▪ Expert application of advanced tools and methods used by the leading global investment banks and private equity funds for clients.


First and foremost, we are seeking team members who are aligned with our values. Valitas’ people are entrepreneurial, rigorous, humble, curious, and drawn to challenges. The successful Analyst is meticulous, articulate, and precise in their written and oral communication. They listen carefully to synthesize information quickly. Other attributes essential to this role are:

▪ Proficient in Microsoft Excel and Word and meticulous with graphics in PowerPoint; and
▪ Proven track record of high performance in a fast-paced professional/academic setting.

The qualifications, skills, and requirements include:

▪ Academic excellence in completing a bachelor’s degree in Finance, Business, Economics, Engineering, or a related technical discipline;
▪ Excellent analytical skills;
▪ An impact player who is diligent, rigorous, tenacious, and can carry tasks independently to completion; and
▪ Demonstrated interest in being part of an entrepreneurial culture is an asset.

If you have excelled in multiple endeavors up to this point in your career and are seeking ever greater challenges and elite professional development, we would like to hear from you.


Those who join our team are expected to adjust to their roles very quickly and will be assigned independent projects immediately, with guidance and mentorship from senior management. In this role, you will:

▪ Participate in our Professional Development Program offered through a combination of shadowing on client projects, professional courses, selected readings, and workshop sessions;
▪ Lead and manage the firm’s quarterly strategic projects and support senior team members;
▪ Work on pitch books and live deals where appropriate, gain hands-on transaction experience as you gain exposure to Valitas’ mandate processes and tools;
▪ Research, build, and maintain internal databases;

▪ Build target lists and perform financial and strategic fit analysis for potential targets and bidders, including industry research; and
▪ Perform financial modelling, including valuation work, applying methods developed at the leading investment banks and private equity funds (e.g., discounted cash flow analysis, comparable company analysis, precedent transaction analysis).
