The Company

Aquin & Cie. combines substantial industry expertise with professional M&A knowledge. As the company is completely independent, we are free of any conflicts of interest and only committed to the success of our clients. Our team of experts is dominated by personalities who previously were either entrepreneurs themselves or have held a high management position in the industry. We do not just act entrepreneurially, but also feel personally committed to central, entrepreneurial ideals and deeply respect the value created by our clients. We combine pragmatism with technical foundation and always consider business ethics in the often tough negotiation processes.

Mid-sized companies are the focus of our work. Our clients are their owners, corporations that want to buy or sell medium-sized units, and investor groups, such as private equity firms or family offices.

Our range of services comprises the entire life cycle of the business since founding: From the raising of growth capital, the purchase and sale of assets, the realization of a succession solution by sale, and even advising former entrepreneurs, respectively family offices regarding their off-market direct investments.

How we work

Aquin & Cie. stands for independent, objective advice of the highest quality and confidentiality at company sales, mergers and acquisitions, as well as in all questions of equity and debt capital raising or restructuring.

A cooperation always begins with active listening to obtain a deep understanding of the current needs and goals of our clients. Our team of experts will develop a customized solution that can be implemented as needed with our international partners worldwide.

We provide mid-sized companies with the professionalism which large corporations are used to getting from major investment banks. Consequently, we have all the relevant international financial and transactional databases and we continually invest in the education and training of each employee.

Our staff members are proven experts in their respective fields. This is reflected in numerous publications, lectures and close engagement in university teaching.

Our solutions always target an integrated perspective: The results of our work must be coherent from a strategic, accounting and legal perspective but must also meet your corporate needs – and in the case of succession issues – your personal and family needs.
