Q Advisors and Acuity Advisors, both leading TMT investment banks, have announced the formation of a strategic alliance designed to give current and future clients access to enhanced investment banking services with an extended reach into Europe and North America.
The partnership, focused on the Infrastructure, Cloud and Managed Services, and Software sectors, sees two very complementary businesses collaborating to create a truly global telecom and technology practice.
“Q Advisors is thrilled to be able to supplement our European office in Amsterdam with a deeper presence that Acuity Advisors provides,” states Michael Quinn, Founding Partner at Q Advisors. “We were searching for a bank with a similar long-term client focus and the required technology capability and we found that in Acuity.”
“Acuity Advisors was looking to broaden our U.S. presence in the Infrastructure, Cloud and Managed Services and Software sectors. The partnership with Q Advisors allows us to do just that,” adds Richard Baker, Managing Partner at Acuity Advisors. “Both of our firms have a very similar operating philosophy and a client-first mentality.”
The two firms will kick off the strategic alliance at the Cloud Comms Summit Invest, a virtual M&A roundtable on June 11, which is hosted by the Cavell Group.
