FirePower ranks in top 20 North American lower mid-market investment banks

We’re proud to be recognized as one of the top 20 lower mid-market investment banks by Axial, a New York based M&A network and research firm. FirePower ranked tenth in North America and is the only Canadian investment bank to make Axial’s top 20 list. There were 767 investment banks assessed for Axial’s rankings, which take three main characteristics into account: client quality, buy-side targeting, and process effectiveness.

Kudos to FirePower’s Investment Banking team who work relentlessly to get our clients’ deals done.  And thanks to our clients for trusting FirePower to execute on their most critical transactions.

Axial’s announcement, including methodology, is here.
