About Lazard Europe

Founded in 1848, Lazard has advised on some of the most significant mergers and acquisitions in Europe and the Americas since the beginning of the 20th century. The firm's modern history can be traced to the year 2000, when the "three houses of Lazard" (based in New York, Paris and London) formally united as one partnership. The firm went public in 2005 and today is the largest advisory-focused investment bank, with offices in 42 cities across 27 countries. The firm is led by Kenneth Jacobs, its chairman and CEO, and employs approximately 2,600 people globally.

Lazard has two main businesses: financial advisory and asset management (each accounts for approximately 50 percent of the firm's revenues). The financial advisory unit advises companies, boards, governments and sovereign entities on M&A transactions, capital structure, capital raising, restructuring and other strategic matters. Thanks to its extensive and deeply rooted global network, Lazard is known for advising on large, complex and cross-border assignments.

Lazard's asset management business offers a broad range of investment management services across traditional and alternative strategies in equity and fixed income to corporations, public funds, sovereign entities, endowments and foundations, labor funds, financial intermediaries, and private clients. Lazard has assets under management of more than $180 billion.
