Senior Team

We are one international team.

About Us

We employ over 200 staff across six European offices in France (Paris and Lyon), Germany (Frankfurt), Poland (Warsaw) and the UK (London and Manchester).

Our parent company is Daiwa Capital Markets, the international investment banking division of Daiwa Securities Group, listed in Japan with a market capitalisation of c. €12bn. It is thanks to Daiwa’s presence throughout the Asia-Pacific region that we have local market knowledge and strong relationships with businesses across the Asian continent. Our sister company, Sagent Advisors, in which Daiwa is also a shareholder, provides the same coverage and access across the United States.

We are present in Spain and the Nordic region through our partners Danske Bank Corporate Finance and Montalbán Atlas Capital, both of whom we have worked with for more than fifteen years.

Culture & Ethics


“The DC proposition is about providing the right advice, not the convenient advice. Taking time to think about what we’re doing and not following a process.  We’ll advise a client to walk away from a deal if it’s right. That’s impeccable advice.”
