Anyone in Deals from a Finance transformation background? How did you make the move?

Posting as :

What do you consider finance transformation?

Cost optimization, process improvement, tech implementation. Not sure what firm you’re at but equivalents are: Finance and Enterprise Performance or Finance Operations at some firms


Why do you want to go from finance transformation to deals?

I’m interested in deal work. Long term goal is Corp Dev. Do you think it’s a bad move?

That should be an easy move as long as you don’t mind being aligned to the finance function for post deal integration/separation. The work really isn’t that different than what you outlined, it’s just precipitated by a transaction.

I’m currently an IB analyst at a no name shop in LA. I’m employed as a 1099 and I currently get 70k/year + 5% of deal fees I’m staffed on. This makes my all in extremely variable as I made 210K in ‘19 and 70k in ‘20. We let someone go this year and I asked for a raise and he bumped me up to to that 5% from 4%. However we just signed up 4 new clients, which would greatly increase my workload as I’m the only junior guy. Would it be messed up to ask him to bump me to 100k base or I quit?
