Learn about Abadi & Co.’s three core areas of specialist investment banking expertise: emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations.

Our Expertise

Our investment banking boutique is built upon three main areas of specialist expertise: emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations. Within each of these areas, we offer a range of services. Our team is ideally suited to advising clients on matters that touch upon one or more of our areas of specialization, and each team member contributes to a wealth of collective knowledge and experience in our areas of concentration. Our specialties are where our strengths lie, and we cater to a growing client preference for dealing with experts, rather than generalists.

Our team’s decades of experience and depth of knowledge within our specializations provide valuable insights to our clients, as they contemplate financial and strategic alternatives for overcoming their challenges and achieving their goals. By specializing, we ensure the value we bring to clients is substantial. Our high level of expertise allows us to develop unique and often groundbreaking solutions when needed, building upon our formidable structuring capabilities.

While we remain steadfastly focused on our core areas of expertise, our multi-disciplinary team has the broad range of skills which are necessary to serve our clients’ needs and deliver effective solutions: our team includes analysts, structurers, quants, and corporate finance experts.

If a client approaches us with an assignment where we don’t think we can add significant value, we are candid and refer them to a more suited advisor. The quality of the expertise we provide is extremely important to us; it builds trust and ensures the longevity of our client relationships.
