City & Merchant was established in 1991 to provide a balanced group of traditional merchant banking activities aimed at the SME and SQC market place. Bringing together corporate finance, IPO support and direct equity investing we have recruited senior executives from major institutions in order to achieve a unique vehicle for both companies and investors alike. Our senior management come from various fields within the Financial Services sector, their backgrounds covering the entire range from corporate law & finance through to accountancy, investment banking, trading, IPO & pre-IPO funding.
In addition to our traditional role in Corporate Finance, City & Merchant is able to provide Principal and Agency Trading, and Fund Management in all its forms, providing within our organisation an insight into the markets, the investors in those markets and the companies which seek to access those markets. This triple knowledge sits within an operation which is small enough to communicate with each other.
