Stephens, an independent and family-owned investment bank, has continued the expansion of its European advisory capabilities with the addition of a highly experienced business services sector banker Brian Robertson.
Robertson has been appointed Managing Director, Business Services and joins Stephens integrated Business Services team based across the U.S. and Europe. The hire further strengthens Stephens cross border capabilities, particularly in transatlantic deal flow.
Robertson joins from Evercore, where he was a Managing Director of its Industrials and Services team after joining in 2017 when the team was newly formed. Prior to this, Robertson held positions at Lazard and Morgan Stanley.
Founded in the U.S. in 1933, privately held Stephens established an investment banking presence across the Atlantic in 2014 – opening offices in London and Frankfurt. Stephens international corporate finance advisory business is led by a highly experienced team of professionals with expertise across many sectors, geographies and types of transactions.
The hire of Robertson further extends Stephens footprint in Europe, which now consists of more than 40 investment banking professionals.
“Adding an advisor of Brian’s calibre to our growing team in London further demonstrates our long-term ambitions for Stephens in Europe,” Brad Eichler, Executive Vice President and head of Stephens Investment Banking group, comments. “With his extensive experience, Brian further strengthens Stephens transatlantic value proposition in this important services sector.”
Robertson adds: “Stephens has built a first class reputation as a trusted advisor with integrity and a focus on long-term relationships. With its deep relationships across the private capital ecosystem Stephens is positioned exceptionally well to offer tailored solutions to complex situations. It is a compelling proposition that clients can trust and I look forward to contributing to the firm’s continued growth.”
