Message from the Co-Chairmen

In 1994, a select group of investment bankers met to explore how to effectively collaborate on cross-border transactions. From that meeting, several shared beliefs emerged: the importance of professional ethics, a duty to deliver the highest level of personal attention to clients, and the belief that boutique banks are best suited to meet the unique investment banking needs of middle market and emerging growth companies.

It was on this foundation that the IAIB was born. Since that time, we realized that a significant opportunity exists to refer business outside of our purview, to share local market and sector-specific knowledge, and, when appropriate, to co-agent transactions.

Together, we celebrate milestones and successes and provide guidance to each other during challenging times. More importantly, we share resources and expertise to close better deals, obtain optimal financing, and deliver greater value to our clients.

The IAIB is an organization comprised of exceptional and experienced investment bankers—all focused on making their organizations the best they can be. We're always open to considering new memberships. If you'd like to learn more, please contact us.

Kindest regards,
