Business Services

We combine leading Investment Banking and Equity Research capabilities with deep sector knowledge to offer comprehensive solutions and best-in-class service to our clients.

Often referred to as ‘support services’ or ‘outsourcing’, the business services sector is characterized by a diverse range of sub-sectors that support other private or public industries. A key driver of demand for companies operating in this sector is clients' propensity to outsource non-core services, often due to evolving cost pressures or a desire for greater strategic focus. Further emerging factors impacting the sector include innovations in technology (by both sector participants and clients), changes in demographics, the labor market and global trade.

As a leading independent global investment bank, we offer a wide range of advisory and capital raising services, as well as complex cross-border expertise to both emerging and established companies. We tailor our idea-driven M&A and Financial Advisory, Equity Capital Markets, Debt Advisory & Restructuring and Financial Sponsors services to helping our clients achieve their strategic and financial goals.

Our team of industry experts has extensive experience and holds regular strategic dialogue with the leading business services companies across a wide range of sub-sectors:

  • Business Process Outsourcing
  • Engineering and Infrastructure Services
  • Industrial Services
  • Environmental Services
  • Facilities Management
  • Equipment Rental
  • Recruitment and Staffing
  • Education and Training
  • Legal Services
  • Specialty Consulting
