Meet with the Debt Capital Markets Group and the Loan Sales and Trading professionals to discuss financing opportunities for a client that needs to raise funds in order to acquire one of its competitors.

Order in dinner and switch gears a little to work on an assignment a client asked for earlier in the afternoon. I fine-tune the valuation analysis the analyst prepared earlier and draft a response to the CFO.
Check emails and respond to messages I could not get to throughout the day. Check the schedule for tomorrow and touch base with the others in the team. If there is nothing else, I call it the day. A very busy but rewarding day.
