Private equity houses around the globe regard Rothschild as a trusted adviser and many turn to us repeatedly for support.
In Europe, we consistently advise on more transactions involving financial sponsors than any of our competitors.
As our business model is focused purely on advice, we do not rely on balance sheet financing or on our selling other products. Our work with private equity houses is therefore driven solely by the quality of our ideas, our sector expertise, and the breadth of our relationships.
Our global network means that we have an unparalleled awareness of acquisition opportunities across markets. Similarly, if a client requires a buyer, we can help find one – wherever the business is based.
We ensure our financial advisory expertise is fully integrated. This means our clients have access to Rothschild’s collective intellectual capital, global network of contacts, and industry sector knowledge.
We have deep expertise in how to execute auctions and how to maximise value for stakeholders by using dual track exits involving both an IPO and a sale of all or part of the business. In addition, many clients find the insights of our debt advisory team invaluable as they seek an independent view of the financing market.
We regularly achieve private equity awards reflecting the strength and depth of our presence in this area.
