Our group has bankers based in North America and Europe with significant cross-border M&A and capital raising experience, giving us a uniquely global perspective on and access to global clients in the transportation sector. Our efforts are complemented by the firm’s award-winning transportation research team which covers more than 35 public companies in these same sectors, seeking out new sources of industry data to drive better decision-making. Our investment bankers have handled more than 200 completed equity, debt, M&A and restructuring transactions and have formed deep ties with senior executives and private equity firms while showing an understanding of the business challenges and opportunities that clients’ companies face.
