This role will particularly focus on reviewing and executing fund investment and co-investment opportunities, with a special focus on creating new Private Equity teams in Europe with outstanding returns. NORD Holding is a recognized leader in this segment. For our fast growing Fund Investment business, we are recruiting an Investment Associate.


We are looking to expand our team with an Investment Associate to join our office in Germany and to be part of our continuing growth story in the Fund of Funds business. With assets under management of more than €1.5bn, we are one of the leading small-cap investors in Europe with an excellent track record that we have built over the last 50 years.

Nord Holding has a long-term commitment to private equity investing across different types of strategies including direct, co-investments and fund investments (primary and secondary).

This means that we are very actively involved in assessing and supporting the execution of investment strategies at GP level.

The position is based in Hanover with an option to have 1 or 2 home office days a week - enabling commuting from Berlin or Hamburg. Additionally, as we cover the European market, it is expected that you will travel 20-25% of your time.
