Mumbai-based investment bank Equirus Capital has formed a partnership with Clairfield Partners, an international network of investment banks present in 13 countries. The partnership will enhance Equirus' M&A capability and coverage across Europe, US, Asia and Australia, said the firm in a release.
Equirus has offices in Mumbai, Bangalore, and Ahmedabad. Since its inception in 2007, Equirus has closed over 26 M&A, private equity, and capital market transactions. Some of the recent deals it worked on include KKR's $175-million investment in Dalmia Cement.
“Equirus has had a cross-border focus since its founding. However it has become increasingly necessary to take our international involvement to the next level by joining a partnership that will give us people on the ground all over the world. We are seeing increased deal activity for both inbound M&A and outbound M&A, with deals in industry, engineering, infrastructure services, I&T and BPO services, pharmaceuticals, and telecom," said Ajay Garg, founder and managing director of Equirus Capital.
Clairfield Partners is an international corporate finance partnership that provides advisory services with over 200 professionals at firms throughout Europe, North and South America, and Australia.
