corporate finance at Big4


What is the Corporate finance services rendering department’s role at Big4s? what are their main duties? Are they paid well if compared with peers working in other arms of Big4s?


The closest thing you will get to corporate finance in the big 4 is advisory. Corporate finance in this capacity involves advising firms on potential takeover targets and how to improve their overall performance. It’s really more management consultancy than anything. If you are looking for proper corporate finance, you really need to be in an investment bank, where you will be working as part of a corporate finance advisory team.

There is a fair amount of crossover between advisory teams at big 4 and corporate finance teams at investment banks.
