The Financial Analyst is responsible for financial evaluations related to Crestline’s business development efforts -- including underwriting equity investments, mergers and acquisitions, and asset pro formas -- and for financial planning and analysis for the company itself. The position will report directly to the Chief Financial Officer but will also support other departments requiring financial analysis.

In addition, the successful candidate will be well-organized, detail-oriented, and be able to perform a variety of tasks under time pressure and tight deadlines.
