Our Projects


Our mandates are tailored to the needs of each client and project. Our experience as financial advisors covers small- and large-scale projects, as well as public and private clients. As a result, we gained a deep understanding of the needs and constraints of large corporations and small community organizations. We have been involved in all stages of project financing, from investment origination, transaction negotiation, and execution of post-closing financial management, as shown by the following examples.
