Financial sponsors value what we deliver - a premium valuation, efficient, well-managed execution, and certainty of closing.

Financial Sponsors

Fidus investment bankers have a long history advising leading middle market financial sponsors having represented over 100 firms on either the sell side or buy side. For many firms, we have completed multiple transactions, a testament to the client experience and successful outcomes we have achieved. We understand financial sponsors seek both to maximize value for their investors and maximize the opportunities for their partner management teams, and we are known for managing robust, competitive and fair processes. Our industry focused banking teams bring a current perspective and market knowledge to bear on each transaction. Getting the right buyer at the right price in an efficient process is what we deliver to our clients.
