About Us

Our Story

We believe there is a better way to access European capital markets. Our bilingual team includes former in-house financial communications and IR firm professionals with extensive networks, an innate understanding of what makes a compelling investment pitch, and have over a decade of experience advising large wealth management players in Toronto, New York and Paris (Franklin Templeton, WisdomTree Investments, IA Financial, Canaccord Genuity, Richardson Wealth, Timbercreek Capital, and Dundee).

In Europe, we have built relationships with major investment funds and many of the large European banks and Family Office CEOs.

We are constantly expanding and further developing our network in order to offer you the best service and the best leads.

North American Focused, European Based

We work with NYSE, Nasdaq, Toronto Stock Exchange and TSX-Venture listed companies in mining, energy, tech, crypto, biotech and ESG – and we know the Canadian market. We are also interested in exploring partnerships with US exchange listed companies.

Being based in Europe gives us that local edge to help introduce your company to high profile funds and HNW investors who you may not otherwise be able to access.

The companies we are interested to work with have a market-cap in the range of $50M to $5B.


We’ll introduce your company to our network with the same conviction as if it were our own business.


We convey your company milestones and the investment opportunity that demonstrates we are trusted advisors.


We move fast, we are all markets fanatics, and we regularly look for new growth stories.
