At J.P. Morgan, he is a Managing Director in the company’s Leveraged Finance Group. “With Leveraged Finance,” he explains, “I am responsible for the following industries: Industrials, Aerospace and Defense, Transportation and Business Services.” He works with corporate clients and private equity firms, he adds, to raise capital to finance their acquisitions, shareholder distributions, and other purposes.
Efstathios N Karanikolaidis is also a member of the Beta Gamma Sigma Honor Society, an international honor society that serves business programs that are accredited by the Advance Collegiate Schools of Business. Membership in Beta Gamma is considered the highest recognition that a business student can receive. Membership lasts a lifetime, and it is an honor that Efstathios N Karanikolaidis remains proud of. The Society, as he knows, encourages and honors academic excellence in business study, and also cultivates and celebrates leadership and professional excellence.

Morgan include providing effective financing solutions to clients, maintaining existing client relationship and developing new ones, ultimately expanding the firm’s market share in leveraged finance for the industries he is responsible for; recruiting, training, and retaining talented junior bankers, and contributing to an inclusive and diverse workplace environment.
