The most rewarding part of the job is completing a transaction. Everyone involved in corporate transactions works very hard to get the job over the line and completed. Afterwards, knowing that you’ve played a part in someone’s new venture or business expansion, or setting a client up for retirement if they’re selling out, is extremely rewarding
