Akin Bay seeks through innovative thinking and initiatives to provide our clients an enhanced array of services across all the differing segments of the financial services industry. Many of these services are related to transactions we work on, but are not offered by Akin Bay directly. In recognition of this need, we have developed our “Strategic Alliance” program. This program offers our clients access to specific leading financial and related services firms, including banks, non-bank lenders, private equity funds, hedge funds, venture capital funds, business brokers, wealth management firms, law firms and accounting firms with whom Akin Bay interacts regularly on transactions. This program is designed to permit Akin Bay to work closely with the Strategic Alliance member on transactions for Akin Bay’s or their clients, leveraging each firm’s strengths for the benefit of the client. Akin Bay offers to its clients the benefits of these Strategic Alliances free of the numerous conflicts of interest which affect other investment banks. The result for our clients is a more diversified range of independent advisory services and resources with the highest level of attention and confidentiality.
