Imagine you can be actively involved in the Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and/or Equity Capital Markets (ECM) teams of Rabobank.

As an intern, you will have the opportunity to work on both deal origination and execution. You can make a difference by:

  • Assist in the preparation of client presentations;
  • Perform analysis on companies (including their investment case, strategy, markets, products and competitors) and the wider market (market trends and dynamics, investor perspectives);
  • Support financial analyses and company valuations;
  • Assist the team in the general execution process, e.g. in the preparation of information memoranda, management presentations or prospectuses.

With each other
Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do. The Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and Equity Capital Markets (ECM) teams are part of the investment banking activities of Rabobank. These departments offer a challenging, young, dynamic and international working environment.

A selection of recent high profile transactions include the public offer on Telegraaf Media Group, the sale of European assets of Cargill and the acquisition of Weetabix by Post.

Rabobank’s ECM team is specialised in originating and executing equity capital markets transactions. The ECM-related products and services include initial public offerings (IPOs), secondary offerings (e.g. rights issues, accelerated book-build offerings), convertible bond offerings and financial advisory.
