- Field of work
Lazard, one of the world’s preeminent financial advisory and asset management firms, operates in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and South America. The firm provides advice on mergers and acquisitions, restructurings and capital raisings, as well as asset management services.
The core of Lazard’s success is its simple business model of Financial Advisory and Asset Management, with a focus on excellence, intellectual rigour, integrity and creativity. The firm provides premium service for its clients, and an environment that attracts and breeds top talent. Lazard is committed to investing in the success and growth of the global Lazard franchise.
In the beginning of 2004, Lazard established a Financial Advisory office in Amsterdam fully dedicated to cover the Benelux market. The Amsterdam office currently employs 13 M&A and restructuring professionals active in all fields of financial advisory.
Like our clients, the people who work for Lazard enjoy a genuinely different experience. Our entrepreneurial, non-hierarchical environment is such that individuality and original thinking are highly prized.
In the Amsterdam office, Lazard offers internships to (under)graduates throughout the year for a minimum of 3 months during which you will be a full member of the Benelux team.
