Investment Banking & Advisory

Our executive search and consultancy experience in M&A and investment banking spans numerous coverage and industry investment banking hires and team moves in global emerging and frontier markets, as well as industry and sector specific placements in Europe.  We have also sourced and provided due diligence on specialist M&A boutique acquisitions in both developed and emerging Europe, demonstrating our highly consultative approach.

We have worked extensively with global investment banks, specialist houses, emerging markets banks and advisory boutiques, and our track record includes Chief Country Officers, regional investment banking heads and team builds across Africa, the Middle East, Turkey, Russia and Central Asia.

We specialize in assisting our investment banking clients to break ground in new markets. Our ability to source candidates with regional experience, relationships and language skills, and to tap into global diaspora communities, has enabled us to build effective investment banking teams in nascent markets when there is a scarcity of talent.
