Proactive Financial and Investment Banking Services

Thinking like owners

  • Successful processes are about the people you engage and their dedication to your objectives. We are highly engaged and committed to delivering exceptional outcomes for our clients.

  • Our relentless focus is on securing the best possible results for our clients. We think and act like owners, and we apply ourselves fully to each client engagement - and we never give up. Where others see problems, we see solutions and opportunities.

  • The effectiveness of Zenith is evident in the exceptional results, valuations and deal terms we have secured for clients over the course of decades.

Senior Attention

  • Countless decisions must be made over the course of an engagement, and it’s not always apparent which decisions will have lasting consequences. For this reason, our senior professionals lead every project and are hands-on at every step of the process. We believe there is no substitute for senior attention.

  • Zenith senior professionals have accumulated decades of collective experience from investment banking, board appointments, direct investments and management consulting. Together the team has executed hundreds transactions across multiple industries and geographies.

Partnership attitude

  • We are committed to provide our clients with a personalized service larger firms may struggle to match. On the other hand, our experienced bankers, relationships, and global network enables us to connect clients with buyers and sellers from all over the world more efficiently than smaller regional firms.

  • We are proud to have worked with clients and buyers from a wide range of industries and geographies, and we are always striving to deliver the best possible outcomes for our clients by implementing a highly-customized approach for every engagement.

Independent and Global

  • Independent setup secures that we work in the best interest of our clients at all times.

  • Our senior professionals have a broader experience base to offer than most of our peers. This secures the best results and also enables us to see and seek value creating solutions that others do not.

  • Global reach through our strong international networks has in many cases provided exceptional value.
