Europe & the Middle East
We are EMEA’s preeminent full-service investment banking firm.
When other banks in Europe pulled back over the last decade, we continued to invest in and expand our sector and product coverage.
Company and private equity leaders know that we can discover and deliver deals others cannot, because of our deep sector expertise, unique insights, and access to both global resources and connectivity to local clients and cultures.
We are the fastest growing investment banking and capital markets firm in the world’s fastest growing region.
Our seasoned teams across Australia, China, India, Japan, Singapore, and Southeast Asia offer deep sector expertise and insights. Our content and trading platform combines high touch service and the most sophisticated tools to offer clients advisory, distribution, and rapid execution access they can’t find anywhere else.
We're entrusted to manage the most high-profile deals
Between 2020 and 2022, we closed $1.7 trillion worth of transactions, including some of the most high-profile IPOs, M&A and PE deals. The key to our continuing growth story is that we are patient, focused on the long term, and committed to serving our clients best interests no matter the conventional wisdom, groupthink, or market cycle at any given time.
