Becoming an Investment Analyst will put you in a critical role at EF Capital. You’ll be joining a very fast-paced team in a high-growth environment. The work will be challenging and you may find yourself wearing several different hats along the way. You will be responsible for vetting the track record of successful online entrepreneurs who want to operate portfolios for EF Capital. This includes analyzing their current and past business performance to evaluate whether they are a good fit for our program. You will also be responsible for working with existing operators to help with due diligence on new business acquisitions and generate quarterly performance reports for investors.
Here is a list of daily tasks we’ll expect from you (not exhaustive and subject to change):
Building a P&L on a potential operator’s previous business to help us decide whether to accept them for EF Capital Hosting calls with potential operators to discuss their previous or current portfolio performance to understand the risks of their strategy Evaluating an existing operator’s acquisition target and helping the operator project returns to investors based on different variables such as growth and purchase multiple Working with third party accounting firms and existing operators to put together financial statements and quarterly update reports for investors Figuring out ways to improve our existing process to maximize investor returns and create a better experience for operators
While no previous work experience is needed, experience in an analytical role is a big plus. Any background in e-commerce or online business is also helpful. However, we are looking to train the right person, so if you don’t have that experience, don’t let it stop you from applying.
You must be comfortable talking and with people. You need to be able to pick up the phone and call someone to work through complex issues.
You need to be detail-oriented. Being an analyst is a meticulous job. You will be pouring through spreadsheets, traffic analytics, and revenue data, day in and day out. It is up to you to spot errors, inconsistencies, or when something just doesn’t feel “right.”
Every day, you will speak with entrepreneurs about scaling businesses, liabilities, and how good certain assets are as an investment. Over time, you will need to be able to spot genuine risks and opportunities with online businesses. You will need to be able to confidently analyze each potential opportunity and make a recommendation. While investing in online businesses can bring great returns, it can also be a volatile space to play in.
We take a consultative approach with customers. We’re not trying to fit square pegs into round holes. We truly believe that the best experience includes transparency – which sometimes means letting the other person know why they shouldn’t do the deal.
You’re a problem solver. Investing in these businesses can be a very important decision and a very intimate experience for entrepreneurs. That means you will face obstacles and challenges. It will be up to you to make sure those challenges are met head-on and solved for all parties in the deal.
