Day in the Life
As a member of the Advisory team at PWP, my role is to provide clear and strategic advice to my clients in order to help them achieve the best outcomes for their business. Every day, our clients present us with a myriad of complex problems which can include conducting financial analysis of business and industry trends, identifying future M&A opportunities, managing a sales process or conducting valuation analysis. The diverse nature of our client needs presents interesting and unique challenges that require innovative and thoughtful advice. Often times, we must balance several assignments which are at various stages of completion and this requires you to anticipate clients’ needs and work efficiently to produce results. One of the many thrills of working at PWP is the ability to engage with our clients in meaningful ways whilst being surrounded and supported by friendly and inspiring colleagues.
Day in the Life
As a Director at PWP, at a high level, my role is performing and reviewing analysis to solve our clients’ problems and anticipating needs that might come up in the future. These could be related to identifying, evaluating and executing mergers and acquisitions, or corporate restructurings. Most days involve engaging with clients on ongoing transactions, presenting new ideas or discussing latest market trends to keep them up to speed on the opportunities and risks from pursuing different strategic paths. A typical day includes balancing working with analysts to ensure the analysis and work product creation is going smoothly, and communicating with the senior team so that they are aligned on the conclusions from the analysis. Each day also brings with it many atypical challenges and unique issues facing our clients, and with them, a chance to learn something new.
