At Heritage, Cameron values the outstanding support from his team. Everyone, from the analysts to the directors, is always eager to clarify concepts and address inquiries. He feels he has learned as much in this environment as in his finance classes.

He supports projects across various valuation stages, litigation support, and M&A processes. Each experience has provided him with a broader perspective on the tasks performed at the organization.
Taking the Leap
The internship aligns with Cameron’s aspiration to navigate the realms of financial services and investments, as it offers profound insight into business valuation. The most proficient analysts, irrespective of their specific finance niche, grasp how companies are valued and the dynamics affecting that value. Proficiency in this domain significantly enhances Cameron’s skill set.
