Colonnade's knowledge and experience, complemented by our deep industry and private equity relationships, enable us to provide expert advice on mergers and acquisitions and capital raises. Our clients include large corporate entities, private-equity firms and privately-held companies.
We bring creativity, experience and rigor to each of our assignments. We seek first to understand our client’s objectives. After a thorough and collaborative review of all strategic alternatives, we structure a transaction to best address the objectives. We manage a disciplined process to maximize results.
We focus on the financial services and business services sectors and have extensive transaction experience in a number of specific sub-industries. We know the industry dynamics, business models, valuation metrics, accounting issues and participants in our sectors. We maintain a dialogue with our extensive network of owners, investors and buyers in our target sectors. Focus leads to demonstrable expertise in our target markets.
We have built our network of relationships and execution experience the hard way – deal by deal since Colonnade's founding in 1999 and through years at Wall Street investment banks and other leading financial services firms. We are experts at structuring and executing complex financial transactions for both public and private companies. Focus and expertise lead to superior results for our clients.
In addition to our industry focus and transaction expertise, our business model drives success for our clients. One of our senior partners executes each transaction from start to finish, which means thoughtful attention, accountability and no surprises. No hand-offs to junior bankers. Clients should benefit from an advisor’s years of experience – that’s why we’re in business.
