Our Team

Our firm’s strength lies in our people's skills, character, relationships and experience. More than any other factor, clients choose to work with Abadi & Co. because of our talented and specialized team of investment banking professionals. The highly-international Abadi & Co. team covers the diverse range of skills necessary to take on challenging advisory engagements and offer compelling solutions to our clients. The team’s experience includes corporate finance, structuring, quantitative and qualitative analysis, and project management.

Specializing in three core areas of expertise, emerging markets, financial institutions and restructuring & special situations, has allowed our team to build an extremely strong knowledge base in these areas. By focusing on a smaller number of mandates than larger investment banks, we can give clients the attention that they deserve and ensure the involvement of our most senior and experienced team members. Equally important to the knowledge of our team members are the relationships they have developed over the course of their careers.

Professionalism, integrity and accountability are fundamental to the way we in which we work. Team members are selected to ensure these traits permeate throughout the firm. These traits, along with intellectual rigor, focus and discipline, are core to our commitment to deliver excellence, allowing us to build and maintain long-term relationships with clients, investors and other stakeholders.
