Jamal Faraj

Analyst

Jamal joined the Stillwater team in the spring of 2021 as an Analyst based in Toronto, Ontario. He holds a Bachelor of Commerce degree through the DeGroote School of Business at McMaster University and worked in retail banking for TD Canada Trust.

Jamal has a passion for finance and the business world. “M&A is an area that I have taken interest in throughout my undergraduate career in finance. I could not pass up the opportunity to work at an M&A firm where I could learn more about this field and contribute to the success and growth of the company. Stillwater seemed like the perfect fit for me to transition into the investment and corporate finance world right out of school.”

He is most proud of his volunteer experience as a soccer team coach because he connected with each individual and helped them improve their game while growing their passion for the sport. We look forward to seeing his ability to relate with people deepen and expand in the M&A world as he steps into this role.

Jamal is passionate about sports, particularly soccer. You can often find him cheering for FC Barcelona and is a super fan of all Toronto sports teams. Outside of work, he spends time with friends, playing soccer or guitar, and catching a good movie.

“No matter how successful you get, always stay humble and never forget your beginnings.”
