Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) June 15, 2016
Sampford Advisors announced today that it has continued to expand it's presence as the only boutique investment bank headquartered in Ottawa by hiring Boris Petkovic as a Financial Analyst. Boris joins Sampford from the Sprott School of Business at Carleton University where he recently received a Bachelor of Commerce with a Concentration in Finance.
"When I founded Sampford Advisors in 2014, I did so because I realized that many Ottawa-based technology companies were not getting the M&A and capital raising advisory services and expertise that they deserved" said Ed Bryant, Sampford's President and CEO. "Since then, we have built a team of four professionals with over 30 years of combined investment banking and corporate finance experience from New York, London, Hong Kong and Singapore. The team has raised over $20 billion in equity and debt capital and completed over $30 billion in M&A across hundreds of transactions. This level of M&A and capital raising experience is unparalleled in Ottawa."
"We are excited for Boris to join our team and help us continue to provide exemplary advisory services to our clients" Ed said.
