We are a 17-person firm, formed in 1995, unified by a mission of helping our clients successfully navigate the complex financial strategy required to turn scientific innovations into patient impact.


While Chestnut Partners is an investment bank, its deep client relationships typically result in advisory assignments that are a mix between traditional banking and consulting activities and expose Analysts to all aspects of client business models and strategies.

·        Be mentored by Partners of the firm who have 40- and 11-years of experience, respectively, in their field

·        Earn a competitive compensation and benefits package

·        Have exceptional career opportunities upon exiting the firm


Candidates for this position require strong analytical and interpersonal skills with backgrounds reflecting a high level of achievement. Successful Analysts:


·        Are goal-oriented and approach projects with an ownership mentality

·        Possess work habits stressing initiative, self-reliance, organization, thoroughness, attention to detail, and perseverance

·        Exhibit maturity, self-confidence, strong communication skills, and an ability to work both independently and in a team

·        Have strong research and presentation skills


Chestnut prefers candidates who have:


·        Math, science, economics, finance and/or accounting backgrounds through class work or prior experience (a full major in one of these subjects is not required and Chestnut has hired candidates in the past who did not major/minor in one of these concentrations)

·        Experience using Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint


Chestnut Partners is an equal opportunity employer.
