Global Investment Banking
Baird is a leading middle-market investment bank. Our 400+ banking professionals work as one global team, collaborating across many different geographies, products and sectors to help our clients achieve great outcomes.
We provide advisory & financing services that help publicly traded companies, private companies, entrepreneur-owned businesses and private equity firms around the world achieve their unique objectives.
We advise buyers and sellers across the globe on mergers, acquisitions and other M&A transactions. Our entire investment banking group operates on a single profit and loss statement, which drives a higher level of teamwork and collaboration for our clients. And with a dedicated Financial Sponsor group, comprised of skilled M&A bankers, we bring significant private equity perspectives and relationships to every M&A process.
Equity Capital Markets
We access the public markets to execute a variety of equity financing transactions for clients, including IPOs, follow-on offerings and more. Through our institutional sales and trading team and broad retail network, Baird offers clients global distribution capabilities, providing unique access to key decision makers and investors around the world. Our highly ranked investor conferences and non-deal roadshows enable us to be a long-term financial partner for issuers.
Working closely with Baird’s industry and M&A bankers, we deliver a full suite of debt and private equity capital solutions to clients, including analyzing and optimizing capital structures and structuring and raising capital to fund growth, acquisitions, provide liquidity to shareholders, and recapitalize balance sheets.
We work closely with Baird’s global industry coverage, Financial Sponsor and Capital Advisory bankers to advise client management teams, their boards of directors and financial sponsors on their financial challenges, assisting them in thoroughly analyzing their problems and structuring, negotiating and executing effective solutions. Our restructuring practice’s advisory expertise runs the spectrum from equity-preserving liability management and distressed capital raise transactions to distressed buy-side and sell-side M&A transactions and chapter 11 recapitalizations.
