This Paris-based 6 month internship starting in July or September 2024 is an exciting opportunity to intern with the Rothschild & Co’s European corporate private equity business.

FAPI manages c. €2.5 billion through its latest fund and is the flagship private equity / buy-out vehicle investing in mid-cap companies while FALT makes investments in larger companies for longer-term holding periods, and FAGC manages €450 million through growth investments and small-cap buy-outs. All three funds are focused on investments within Western Europe (with FALT additionally on North America and FAGC co-investing in the US with the US-based Five Arrows fund FAGP) and primarily invest in three main verticals: data & software, healthcare and technology-enabled business services.

The FAGC team, based in Paris and London, is currently deploying its first investment vehicle into fast-growing European SMEs.
