Elevating investment banking isn’t only about our clients. Though we know our approach makes for a better client experience, it’s also about making sure Fort Capital fosters an environment in which our team can thrive, personally and professionally. In our business, the hours can be long; we spend a lot of time here, and together. So we go to great lengths to ensure that it feels like a comfortable, kind and even fun place to be. Everyone talks about our offices, which feel a bit like a coworking space, a bit like a newsroom, a bit like the kitchen in a high-end home (the kind with beer and wine on tap). What it doesn’t feel like is a bank, or a boiler room. It’s a place people gather, not because they have to but because they want to. Which is exactly what we had in mind.

Partnership Opportunities

Fort Capital was founded by investment bankers who did their time at the big banks, and knew there had to be a better way. So they created it. If our Brand Story resonates with you—if you too are looking for something, and somewhere, better for the next phase of your investment banking career—you might be a good fit at Fort. We’re always looking for experienced experts with an entrepreneurial spirit to join our ranks as partners. Reach out to our leadership team.

Current Openings

If Fort Capital sounds like the kind of place you belong, please get in touch. You can apply for one of the postings below, or reach out to us at our Vancouver, Calgary, or Toronto office.

Opportunity: Investment Banking Associate

Location: Toronto, ON

Application Deadline: February 28, 2023



Fort Capital Partners is seeking one or two highly motivated Associates to join our Toronto team.  The selected candidate will have the opportunity to work alongside experienced senior bankers in a unique, entrepreneurial environment, with a significant amount of diversified deal flow. Since inception in 2014, Fort Capital has successfully raised over $4 billion in capital and advised on over $37 billion in M&A value. Our firm has approximately 50 team members across our Toronto, Vancouver, and Calgary offices.


What We Offer

At Fort Capital, we strive to provide an experience unlike other investment banks. We’re a partner owned firm without the rigid structure you might find at larger institutions. For our partners, it means an exceptional level of flexibility and a culture of collaboration. For our younger bankers, it results in particularly broad exposure to transactions and clients, with a higher-than-typical balance of “real work” vs. pitching and routine client coverage. We work as practically and efficiently as possible, and want the best of you, not the rest of you.

Along the way, we provide flexibility, including the ability to work from home one day per week and a real effort to protect personal time on weekends. Quality of life is important to us.

We’re team oriented and collaborative with a flat reporting structure. As a developing banker at Fort Capital, you can feel confident that you’re getting career building live deal experience and client exposure unlike anywhere else. If you want to learn quickly and be part of a passionate, engaging and entrepreneurial culture, Fort Capital is a great fit. Conversely, if you’re looking for a ladder to climb, are focused on competing internally with your teammates for attention and promotion, this isn’t the right place for you.

  • Building financial models, valuation analyses, merger models, corporate finance solutions and other forms of financial analyses
  • Preparation of client proposals, and pitch books / marketing documents (teaser, CIM etc.)
  • Assisting with client development (coordinate data with clients, assist in presentation of new ideas, etc.)
  • Managing deal processes and providing guidance/mentorship to Analysts

About Fort Capital

From the start, we’ve been determined to approach investment banking differently. We’re an alliance of independent investment bankers, many of whom left the world of big-name banking looking for something better for our clients and for our own careers. Most of us grew weary of spending our days consumed by internal bureaucracy; bound by policies created with the bank’s interests in mind, and not the clients’.

At Fort Capital, we’re free to do the hands-on work we love, for clients we choose, and our clients’ interests come first. Always. We start every collaboration with one fundamental question: what does our client want to achieve, and how can we help them get there? Then we build them the very best, most strategic team for the job—from our own ranks and from our network of collaborators, across Canada and around the world.

Because it’s not about us. It’s about our clients and the businesses they’ve built, often from the ground up. We align our definition of success with theirs, and doggedly strive to achieve it. And we do succeed—for our clients, on their terms—day after day; deal after deal. We’re known for what we do in part because we’re experienced experts in our field. But more importantly, we genuinely care about each client and every deal we take on. Simply put, we’re all in at a personal level. Because business IS personal, to our clients and to us.

It’s a more rewarding, collaborative and client-centered approach to investment banking. If you ask us, it’s the way investment banking should be.

Welcome to Fort Capital. Investment banking, elevated.
