Investment Manager at Valiance Asset Manager

Where: Greater London

Deadline: June 28, 2018

Type: Graduate

View more

About Valiance:

Valiance, a leading private equity firm is looking for an Investment Manager with solid management/strategic consulting and/or operational experience. Valiance focuses on investing growth capital in exceptional businesses supported by long-term trends: growing and ageing population, need of better and more efficient healthcare, global demand for richer food, etc. Valiance investments are primarily in Life Sciences in Europe and the US. Valiance also has a separate investment in Brazil in relation to farmland transformation

In Life Sciences, our strategy is to invest in late-stage companies where we take significant positions associated with strong governance (incl. Board seat). We typically invest either i) in clinical stage companies where a very disruptive and differentiated technology has gathered sufficient evidence and support to partially de-risk the investment or ii) in businesses about to start their commercial roll-out after several years of inward-facing technology development. At this turning point, companies tend to encounter two main difficulties which we have become experts at addressing – the difficulty to find ‘smart’ capital to fund the growth phase as well as the necessity to reinvent themselves through the addition of talented human capital at Board, Management and Team levels.

Being together: We play for Team Aggreko and value the expertise of everyone around us. We’re accountable and we hold others to account

Being innovative: We never miss an opportunity to learn, to look out, or to be better.

Role Purpose

This role is created to maximise the contact between the customer and Aggreko so orders are closed and opportunities created, whilst the external sales team are actively seeking new opportunities. The internal sales person will work as part of a small team comprising 3-4 external salesmen, and manage opportunities and orders created within that team. The aim is to create more time for external sales to produce new, value added business and revenue growth.

As Aggreko have a large proportion of infrequent and lapsed accounts (x customers), the IS will be responsible for routinely contacting them to create opportunities and make Aggreko the first choice should a requirement appear. This will create time for the external salesman to focus on value added customers and new sales.
