Intrepid Investment Bankers provides M&A, capital raising and strategic advisory services to entrepreneurs and middle-market companies in various industry sectors. Intrepid is seeking to hire a Research Analyst to augment its business development efforts and buy-side advisory. This role is best suited for entry-level applicants looking to break into the financial services industry, particularly those with an interest in the M&A advisory space.


The Research Analyst will support Intrepid bankers by qualifying potential targets through qualitative research utilizing publicly available information as well as proprietary information services leveraged by Intrepid. Specifically, the primary function of the Research Analyst is to understand the criteria (products, markets, sales channel, etc.) that desirable companies for a given strategy will have and identifying companies that best match the criteria provided. Successful Research Analysts will be detail-oriented, excellent at multi-tasking, and have a desire to learn about multiple industries as well as the strategies deployed by private equity groups and strategic acquirers to execute on value-creation strategies.

Research Analysts will be exposed to both buy-side and sell-side business development strategies at a middle-market focused investment bank. Responsibilities for the position may include assisting in the design and preparation of marketing, client and deal specific materials, and reports for each project.

Previous finance experience is not necessary as all research is qualitative in nature.


The qualifications of the candidate will include:

  • Strong academic credentials
  • Team player willing to take an integral role in Intrepid’s growth
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills
  • Strong work ethic, attention to detail, and pride in workmanship
  • Significant level of maturity and the ability to work as part of a small team
  • Self-starter willing to work in an entrepreneurial, demanding, and fast-paced environment

The position will report directly to the Director of Business Development.
