Consumer & Retail

We have seen a dramatic shake up of the consumer landscape over the past decade, driven in large part by technology and the lingering effects of the financial crisis. One of the key challenges consumer facing businesses today is to be smart online and re-align physical estates across all sales channels.

By combining our global resources and local expertise, we provide innovative ideas for navigating this constantly changing and evolving sector.

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. Our idea-driven M&A and Financial Advisory, Equity Capital Markets, Debt Advisory & Restructuring and Financial Sponsors services are tailored to helping our clients achieve their strategic and financial goals.

As one of our clients, we like to understand your unique needs and the industry challenges you face. Then we provide tailored advice to turn these challenges into opportunities based on our in depth sector knowledge and transaction experience. We specifically focus on the lifestyle, leisure, shopping and dining segments of the global consumer economy.
