Combining sector intelligence with a collaborative approach.

Our depth of sector expertise is what truly differentiates our approach.

A core tenet of our strategy is a selective focus on specific industries – we stick to what we know. As a result we are true industry experts, offering unrivaled sector intelligence gained through years of highly relevant transaction experience. But it’s not just about data and analytics – our sector focus also ensures that Bowstring can leverage key relationships and real market intelligence in any situation.

We care deeply about providing the best possible client experience and overall service. As a Bowstring client, you are working with a firm that will put in the extra effort to get to know every aspect of your business. Our senior level bankers are highly committed to each client engagement, leading the way from kickoff all the way through the full delivery of a successful outcome.

We place real emphasis on working side-by-side with our clients, and we believe that open and honest communication is at the heart of all winning teams. Our deep day to day involvement ensures that we not only understand your perspective and priorities, but we truly experience the highs (and inevitable lows) of any engagement.
