The financial performance and strategic developments achieved since our founding have enabled Evercore to emerge as a dominant, global, independent financial advisory firm with two principal businesses:
Evercore Investment Banking
- Advisory services for prominent multinational corporations and financial sponsors regarding mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings, financings, public offerings, and private placements, with exceptional expertise guiding highly-complex strategic transactions.
- Research, Sales and Trading services provided to large institutional investors, free of the conflicts of interest inherent to the proprietary trading conducted by larger financial advisory firms and superbanks.
Evercore Investment Management
- Asset Management, Wealth Management, and Private Equity businesses, managing and investing capital on behalf of a broad range of institutional investors such as corporate and public pension funds, endowments, foundations insurance companies, family offices, and high-net-worth investors
- Each business is led by senior investment professionals with extensive experience in their field and a significant, long-term ownership position in their business.
Our professionals act as trusted senior advisors to their clients, helping them devise strategies for enhancing shareholder value, optimally raising capital to meet investment and growth objectives, and proactively bringing new ideas and perspective regarding individual companies, industry sectors, and global markets. Evercore's client-first focus is rooted in an unwavering commitment to our Core Values:

Today, Evercore is a premier independent M&A, restructuring and strategic advisor, a leading provider of non-proprietary capital markets execution and advisory services, and an investment advisor of choice. We will build on this success through the following strategies:
- Continue Global Expansion. Global perspective and execution capability are critical to navigating development and investment strategies in today's markets. With operations in the U.S., the UK, Mexico, Hong Kong, Singapore and Brazil, and strategic alliances in China, Japan, Korea and Argentina, our reach extends across North and South America, Europe and Asia. Our global expansion will continue through strategic acquisitions and alliances, and where the business environment is receptive to our differentiated model and our clients have or seek to develop a significant presence.
- Attract Senior Talent. Our success is driven primarily by the quality of our people and their commitment to our clients. Our business model, reputation, and strength of brand have proven attractive to the industry's most talented professionals. We will continue to add selectively to our professional talent pool, further globalizing our Advisory services and broadening our Research, Sales and Trading market sectors.
- Increase Assets Under Management. We have carefully developed our Investment Management businesses into high-performing advisors with exceptional managers and robust client service. We will continue to grow assets under management, both organically and through acquisitions and alliances that expand long-term value opportunities for our clients.
