New York, NY

Rosenblatt is seeking a Senior TMT/FinTech Investment Banking professional.

Job Description

Rosenblatt is seeking a Director or Managing Director-level professional to help grow our FinTech/TMT Investment Banking platform. This is a very senior role within the group. Origination and execution capabilities are both required as this is a boutique.  It is an entrepreneurial opportunity to lead, build and grow for the qualified candidate who fits well into our warm, boutique culture.

NYC location is not required, but preferred. Our work environment is family-friendly, offers schedule flexibility, PTO time, and promotes work-life balance.

Opportunity

Leveraging our award-winning market structure and exchanges research (https://www.rblt.com/market-structure) as well as reputation and relationships in those areas, in 2009 Rosenblatt launched a FinTech investment banking unit known for its domain expertise which has served as trusted advisers on more than three dozen deals, including IPOs for CBOE, BATS, Virtu and Robinhood large capital raises for industry consortium Visible Alpha and low latency provider Raft Technologies, and multiple M&A advisory assignments for LeveL ATS and GTS (https://www.rblt.com/investment-banking).  Our new senior banker would help broaden our FinTech banking business and/or replicate its success in the broader technology, media and telecom (TMT) sector.  We have built a TMT fundamental research effort (https://www.rblt.com/equity-research#TMTR) that includes seven senior research analysts and have become respected domain experts in TMT so we believe the timing is right to expand our TMT efforts into banking.  The domain expertise and relationships we have already built with public and private companies in the TMT space should be value-added to any banking effort on both the private and public capital raise fronts as well as M&A advisory.

We are interested in identifying and hiring a professional with domain expertise in the TMT/FinTech industries, with strong C-suite relationships at public and private companies, proven origination ability and a solid track record of quality deal execution in the TMT space who can launch and lead this effort. The ideal candidate should be passionate about building a world class TMT/FinTech investment banking practice.  Primary activities will include advising on the strategic direction of the unit;  business development; presentations internally to review committees and externally to the senior management and boards of directors; acting as the lead professional on pitches and engagements; managing as well as executing the day-to-day tasks of engagements and pitches and serving as a principal contact with client personnel; identifying potential additional hires and directing their efforts; preparing deal-specific collateral; negotiating client engagements and deal documents; networking with prospects to build revenue-producing relationships; identifying capital markets opportunities; and driving business development events and initiatives, in addition to closely following firms covered by Rosenblatt’s TMT-research team. The environment at Rosenblatt is collegial and entrepreneurial and, as such, rewards employees with substantial responsibility. Teamwork is essential to the firm's success, yet creativity and new ideas are encouraged.

Culture

We have a culture of excellence, integrity and putting clients’ needs above our own for over four decades and are in the process of steadily building a best-in-class boutique Global Tech research and FinTech investment banking businesses. The FinTech investment banking unit was launched in 2009 and complements our 40+ year old agency-only trading business, which boasts the largest market share among all NYSE floor brokers, as well as a reputation for independence and innovation in electronic trading, FinTech and market structure analysis. We have survived and thrived by being humble, listening to our clients, and putting their needs first as we adapt to an ever-evolving world. We are applying that same winning formula to our comparatively new research business (founded in late 2014), as we embrace change, focus on being deeply expert, and as a boutique remain flexible.‍
