William Blair’s Financial Sponsors Group is focused on developing and institutionalizing relationships with leading private equity firms around the world. Many of these relationships have been developed for over two decades providing us with senior-level access and credibility with the key decision-makers at each private equity firm. With over 251 successful sales to financial sponsors since 2013, we have proprietary insights into each financial sponsor’s unique investment criteria, approach, and behavior. Our team’s highly-relevant experience with and relevance to the private equity community uniquely positions William Blair to deliver exceptional results for our M&A sell-side clients.

Since 2013, William Blair has completed over 372 sell-side transactions on behalf of financial sponsors and has raised over $150B of equity and debt on behalf of sponsor-backed companies (as of September 30, 2018).
