About Abadi & Co.
Founded in 1991, Abadi & Co. is an investment banking boutique which specializes in three core areas: emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations. By focusing on these three areas of expertise, Abadi & Co. has built a team of independent specialists–Fluent in Finance®–who serve as powerful advocates for clients, focused on protecting their financial interests and delivering practical, high-value financial solutions. The Abadi & Co. team prides itself on its ability to guide clients through difficult and groundbreaking transactions, even in situations where the structuring complexities and challenges would have thwarted others.
Abadi & Co.’s experienced team works on a range of transactions, including mergers & acquisitions, debt & equity capital markets issues and recapitalizations. It caters to a global client base which includes companies, governments and financial institutions, across North America, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East. The firm’s specialization approach means that it only takes on engagements if they fall within one or more of its core areas of expertise, allowing it to assign a strong team to every engagement, providing clients with the attention and intellectual capital they deserve. The firm’s clients appreciate having direct access to a senior banker 24/7; they value the discretion of Abadi & Co.'s smaller team and are relieved of the conflict of interest concerns inherent in working with larger investment banks, which often look to cross-sell other products and services. In order to prevent conflicts of interest, and to ensure the independence of the firm's advice, Abadi & Co. does not conduct trading or manage investments.
