Our Merchant Banking Division specializes in originating principal investments across the capital structure spectrum, often in chorus with our trusted partners, in opportunities that we see as most rewarding on a risk-adjusted basis.

As an integral part of the the firm, MBD has the benefit of access to the intellectual resources and expertise the company possesses in terms of private and public capital markets transactions as well as research and asset management. Extensive background of our team in terms of experience and expertise across multiple sectors provides us with full confidence to participate in transactions in a variety of industries and investment formats.

This business model is deeply connected to the classic mode of operation of the world's historically prominent merchant banks such as Barings, Berenberg and Rothschild that is founded upon building long-term client relationships, providing best-quality independent and unconflicted advice in questions of capital formation and capital raising, and co-investing together with clients.

We aim to provide the link between successful, visionary entrepreneurs and professional financial investors by contributing our own capital, skills and expertise with a common goal of rapid development, capital growth and long-term sustainability of the business. Combination of operational and business expertise with a rich transaction skill set helps create original and productive solutions in complex and sensitive situations.
