Our Valuations Modelling and Economics business is part of EY’s Strategy and Transactions service line, that works with Financial Services clients across insurance, banking, capital markets, and wealth and asset management sectors. We advise our clients on a range of valuation matters across commercial, strategic, financial reporting, tax, and operational purposes.

The opportunity

The Financial Services team has 55 people based in the UK, with a further 200 in non-FS Valuation roles across the UK, all part of a global VME network of 2,000 specialists delivering high quality advice to our clients across the globe.

As Senior Manager within the Valuations team, you will be responsible for managing and delivering complex valuation projects for our insurance sector clients, typically relating to the valuation of private businesses, illiquid assets (such as equity, debt securities, or structured instruments), incentive shares, and intangible assets.

You will work closely with Directors and Partners in the VME team on these engagements. As an insurance valuation subject matter expert, you will also advise colleagues and Partners across SaT and EY’s other service lines, Assurance, Tax, and Consulting, on a range of valuation issues impacting their clients and projects.

Over time, you will develop a strong network with key stakeholders across both EY and our clients, actively pursuing revenue opportunities and engaging in business development activities to support growth. You will also take on team management responsibilities, helping grow and develop our cohort of Analysts and Executives, supporting with training, mentoring, counselling, and recruiting new team members.

  • Experience of working in the insurance sector or with insurance clients, and an understanding of how the insurance sector works, including the impact of solvency capital.
