FP&A / Corporate Finance

More and more companies in all sectors are expanding their FP&A and corporate finance teams as the demand for financial reporting and budgeting increases. Businesses are realizing the importance of a strong internal finance team in helping understand areas of growth and improvement, analyzing costs and margins in different product categories, as well as providing critical financial modeling capabilities.

 

These financial models are often one of the most important deciding factors for securing favorable debt and equity financing, as well as corporate development both on the buy side and sell side. With M&A activity increasing significantly over the last few years, it is critical for medium and large businesses to have clean internal and external financial models which break down the most critical growth drivers. This can be extremely informative for the both the buyer and seller in M&A activities and also drives estimates for synergies and integration costs.

 

One of the biggest concerns of interviewers is understanding if you’re truly passionate about the technology sector and have a strong understanding of the industry. Your story needs to demonstrate a history of interest and / or experience in the space.

 

Furthermore, it is critical to understand the different product lines within the company and the growth strategies it’s pursuing. It’s important to understand the areas where the company has exceeded investor expectations as well as areas for improvement. Finally, it’s also important to understand the trends affecting the sector, the new technologies that could change up, and who the main competitors are as well as how they are positioned.
