At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.
KPMG's Deal Advisory Services group is seeking professionals at the Associate level to join our growing Edmonton practices. We offer independent investment banking, transaction services, valuation and other financial advisory, services to private and public companies. Through KPMG Corporate Finance Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of KPMG LLP and the OSC regulated limited market dealer through which KPMG LLP's investment banking services are provided in Canada, KPMG's corporate finance services include buy-side and sell-side financial advisory, financing services including raising debt and equity capital, valuation/pricing analysis and due diligence support. The successful candidate will participate in a wide range of Corporate Finance assignments involving local, national and international clients of the firm. What you will do
Working in multi-disciplinary teams, you will apply your professional and technical skills on a wide variety of transactions and at different stages of the transaction process.
The successful candidate will be responsible for:
- Conducting financial and valuation/pricing analyses (including the development of complex financial models), as well as qualitative assessments, of companies across various industries.

At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their job.
