A specialized investment banking boutique, focused on emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations.

Our Firm

Abadi & Co. was built to be a different kind of investment bank. We are a specialized boutique, focused and nimble. By specializing in three core areas of expertise–emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations–we have catered to our clients’ stated preference for working with expert advisors. We focus only on mandates which fit our expertise, allowing us to assign a strong team to every engagement, providing clients with the attention, depth-of-knowledge and intellectual capital they deserve. Abadi & Co. does not accept mandates where we don’t feel we can add significant value, and we have structured the firm so that all our clients have direct access to our most senior and experienced team members.

Our firm serves companies, governments and financial institutions, advising them on how to overcome some of their most difficult financial challenges and how to take advantage of growth opportunities. We strive to identify and execute practical solutions in a straightforward manner; however, we do not shy away from complexity where it is necessary. We thrive in volatile, distressed and idiosyncratic situations—developing intelligent, thoughtful solutions.

The Abadi & Co. team has worked on many groundbreaking and first-of-their-kind transactions. We develop and evaluate alternative solutions for our clients and then execute whichever is optimal. Our singular focus on investment banking ensures that we are not preoccupied with cross-selling other products and services to our clients. In order to prevent conflicts of interest, and to ensure the independence of our advice, we do not conduct trading or manage investments.

Professionalism, integrity and accountability are fundamental to the way we in which we work. Team members are selected and developed to ensure these traits permeate throughout the organization. These qualities, along with intellectual rigor, focus and discipline, are vital to delivering excellence.
