Our Services

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.

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.
