Testimonials

I interned at AGC Partners. AGC Partners is a small, technology-focused, Boston-based Investment Bank that offers advisory services with respect to mergers and acquisitions (M&A) as well as capital financings.

During my internship I was responsible for supporting the London operations in any way possible. I was involved in both the preparation of pitch books as well as deal material and market research. Throughout my internship at AGC Partners I gained valuable insight into both the processes of Investment Banking as well as my own personal career choices. I did not only have the chance to observe the daily routines and challenges of an Investment Banker but also got to apply and improve my financial and analytical skills.
