Founded in 1995 by Blackstone and U.S. Treasury veteran Roger Altman, independent investment banking advisory firm Evercore went public in August 2006 with an $83 million initial public offering. Since then, the firm has grown into an elite independent investment banking advisory firm, employing more than 1,900 people and serving clients around the world from its numerous offices in North America, Europe, South America, and Asia.
The firm’s investment banking business advises clients on mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, restructurings, financings, public offerings, private placements, and other strategic transactions. It also provides institutional investors with equity research and sales and trading execution.
To date, the firm has advised on more than $4 trillion of merger, acquisition, recapitalization, and restructuring transactions. Recent M&A assignments include advising Bristol-Myers Squibb on its $90 billion acquisition of Celgene; AstraZeneca on its pending $39 billion acquisition of Alexion; First Data on its $39 billion sale to Fiserv; Refinitiv on its pending $27 billion sale to the London Stock Exchange; the special Committee of GCI Liberty on its pending $11.9 billion sale to Liberty Broadband Corporation; and PNC on its pending $11.6 billion acquisition of BBVA. The firm also offers investment management services to high-net-worth and institutional investors.
Evercore is led by Roger Altman, its founder and senior chairman, and Ralph Schlosstein, its president and CEO, who for almost 20 years served as the president of BlackRock, the largest asset management firm in the world, which he co-founded in 1988. In 2020, John Weinberg became co-CEO and co-chairman with Ralph Schlosstein.
