Working at a small firm appealed to me (I have about 15 colleagues). It is by nature a work environment where you will be visible, get to know everyone well and where you need to work together as a team.
Additionally, the entrepreneurial feeling at Litorina attracted me, and I could see how engaged, friendly, and passionate people were during the interviews. I also felt that I would get the support I needed to be able to grow and expand my knowledge and skills.
Other than that, working with private equity transactions the way I would do as an Associate at Litorina really interested me. I looked forward to getting the opportunity to analyze an investment opportunity from different angles, to try to grasp the complexities of a deal, and to follow investments through the whole investment cycle. What really interested me was the opportunity to have the ability to impact investments, to take part in giving firms the tools they need to develop and to ultimately do something good for society by developing healthy and sustainable companies. In other words, taking part in creating jobs both now and in the long run while adding value to customers, investors, and other stakeholders.
