I am an Investment Manager at AURELIUS Growth Capital. Prior to joining AURELIUS in 2022, I worked as a Transaction Services Manager at Deloitte where I managed and coordinated projects at mid- and large-cap companies for both corporate and private equity clients. Before that, I was an Investment Analyst at the Hannover Finanz Gruppe. I hold an MS in Finance from the ESADE Business School and a BA in Business Administration from FHDW Hannover.

As an Investment Manager at AURELIUS, my work includes managing the acquisition processes for new platform companies and looking for add-ons for the existing portfolio.

What is the #1 reason why you joined AURELIUS?

AURELIUS offered me the opportunity to work with great platform companies and people. No day is boring and there is always an enjoyably challenging environment to work within.

Describe your job

The most exciting part of my job is facilitating our portfolio companies’ growth through fostering new partnerships with entrepreneurs and driving a buy-and-build strategy.

Best thing about AURELIUS

The best thing about AURELIUS is its entrepreneurial, motivated and open-minded colleagues who make it unique. Activities such as summer and Christmas parties or the Mallorca and Oktoberfest events.

Personal statement

I always look forward to the week ahead – knowing that each and every week will be filled with building great companies.

More spirit, more energy, more party than in other Private Equity firms.

I am an Associate at AURELIUS Finance Company and work from the London office. Prior to joining AURELIUS in 2018, I was an Assistant Director in the large corporate lending team at NatWest. Before that, I was an Investment Research Analyst at Wells Fargo. I hold a Diploma in Lending Skills from the Chartered Banker Institute and a BsC in Banking and International Finance from the Bayes Business School.

As part of the AURELIUS Finance Company, I work with companies that don’t have access to the mainstream lending market (focused in the UK). My role is all encompassing – from working with the new business team to originating new opportunities, analysing these new opportunities, and working with the wider AURELIUS team to complete and underwrite the transaction and onboard the client as well as then portfolio management of these clients.

What is the #1 reason why you joined AURELIUS?

I wanted to join a team that would support my development, allow me to develop new skills and which encouraged an entrepreneurial spirit, all while being able to seize opportunities for internal mobility and interaction with different teams. I wanted to specifically join AURELIUS Finance Company due to the nature of the lending being asset focused – something I enjoyed doing previously.

Describe your job

The most exciting part of my job is the range of things we do – no one day is the same as the other – and the wide variety of businesses that we look at – both in terms of industry and performance.

Best thing about AURELIUS

Ability to work in one team but also have interactions with other teams around AURELIUS and the socials.

Personal statement

Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with friends and family (and my dog), playing sports – football and cricket mainly – and exploring new pubs!

AURELIUS is a great home for great people.

As part of the Investment Advisory team, my primary focus is analysing potential investment opportunities. Through a holistic screening process, we identify areas in which AURELIUS can leverage its unique setup.

What is the #1 reason why you joined AURELIUS?

My number one reason for joining AURELIUS is the team! During my time as an intern, I had the chance to get to know the team both inside and outside of work.

I am a Principal at AURELIUS Investment Advisory and work from the London office. Prior to joining AURELIUS in 2016, I worked as an Associate at Credit Agricole CBI. Before that, I was an Assistant Vice President as part of the Debt Finance team at Barclays where I worked on mid-market leverage and corporate lending in the UK and Ireland.

Together with my team, I am responsible for sourcing, diligencing and executing new investment opportunities, ranging from new platform investments, executing portfolio company M&A strategies to eventual portfolio company exits.

What is the #1 reason why you joined AURELIUS?

AURELIUS’ USP, creating value by providing portfolio companies with close operational support, is differentiated from other private equity firms, offering brilliant learning experiences and exciting challenges. AURELIUS has grown and evolved significantly since I joined, demonstrating what an exciting space we occupy in the market.

Describe your job

One of the best things about my role is that no day is the same. You could be researching a new business in a new sector or assisting a business with their buy-and-build strategy one day, and negotiating transaction documents to sign a deal the next. The breadth of the role is what I enjoy the most.

Best thing about AURELIUS

The culture of cross-team team spirit and collaboration, and the socials!

Personal statement

AURELIUS offers a challenging workplace with plenty of opportunities to learn, even after seven years!
