Our Capital Markets Group operates within Corporate Finance/M&A and is one of the firm's fastest growing practices. As trusted advisors, we have the proven ability to engineer and execute financing solutions that are essential for growth and success. We offer access to financing in the public and alternative capital markets through the issuance of debt, equity, or hybrid securities.
Our team is comprised of c. 35 professionals and provides clients with independent solutions free from conflicts of interest arising from credit extensions or proprietary investments. This dedicated team of financial professionals handles large, complex engagements and all aspects of capital raising to help maximize its clients' financial flexibility over the long term.
