We meet interesting clients in a range of industries and we have the privilege of teaming up with them on transactions in which we often employ financial tools that not only meet our clients' needs but also happen to be mentally stimulating and reminders of why we love this industry. As we come across novel ideas or develop market intelligence in areas that may be beneficial to our clients we will occasionally share our thoughts on these with you. We may also highlight new research findings, market trends or simply convey our views on certain topics. We hope you find these "conversations" to be helpful and we look forward to speaking to you in person.
