In 2009, leveraging its industry-leading market structure and exchange space research efforts, Rosenblatt began providing investment banking and consulting services focused solely in the areas of capital markets and financial technology. This intense, singular focus, along with the fact that we are practitioners who trade and use these technologies every day, has allowed us to develop the deep domain expertise and unparalleled relationships in the industry that underpin our offering and distinguish us from generalist investment banks and financial institutions groups who cast their nets much wider. Our reputation for independence and un-conflicted advice has earned us the respect of some of the most demanding market participants globally, ranging from exchanges, regulators and trade associations to bulge bracket investment banks, proprietary trading firms and private equity firms. Our services include:
- Investment Banking: We arrange equity and debt capital raises in private markets and participate on syndicates in initial public offerings (IPOs), as well as provide mergers and acquisitions (M&A) advice. We also provide share repurchase services for publicly-listed companies. Some representative transactions can be viewed here
- Business Development Services: Recognizing that a transaction is not always the most pressing need, we also provide business development services to clients, utilizing our deep understanding of the value chain and the relationships we enjoy with leading market participants who are potential customers. The opportunities we identify, the introductions we make, and the deals we negotiate help our clients grow their businesses.
- Strategic Consulting Engagements: Based on our domain expertise, we are often called upon for both deal due diligence and consulting projects for a wide variety of engagements. Some representative assignments can be viewed here
Another unique aspect of our offering is that twice a year at our Financial Technologies Summit (in New York and London) we bring the fin tech investment and vendor communities together to showcase leading technologies, provide a marketing/sales opportunity for the participating companies, and facilitate capital-raising. The attendees include the “who’s-who” of the capital markets and financial technologies verticals, such as strategy groups of the largest buy-side and sell-side firms, proprietary trading firms, exchanges, technology vendors, and private equity and venture capital firms specializing in this space.
