CrossBoundary is recruiting full-time Associates to join CrossBoundaryâ€™s new Dubai office. As a member of the Dubai investment team, you will work to execute transactions with a potential for significant positive impact on the private sector in Central Asia, the Middle East, and North Africa, in pursuit of CrossBoundaryâ€™s mission to â€œunlock the power of capital to make a strong return and a lasting difference in frontier markets.â€
CrossBoundary is not a development firm and is not seeking typical development skills. Desirable backgrounds include private equity, investment banking, and management consulting, although non-
traditional paths will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
As an Associate, you will identify and evaluate investment opportunities, providing due diligence and investment advisory services to capital providers and capital seekers, becoming a trusted intermediary and advisor for clients.
Experience working in fragile states or frontier markets is desirable, though not required. You should be prepared to spend significant time working and living in an austere environment.
We are open to candidates looking for a 1-2-year commitment as well as those who want to build a long-term career with our firm.
