AURIS Finance is an independent advisor firm offering a wide range of investment banking and financing services, including devising complex financial operations.
Finding equity investors to partner with was an important step for my company’s development. AURIS Finance designed customized pragmatic solutions that allowed me to reach my goals.
One of the main challenges of my sales project was finding a buyer who could keep my company sustainable. AURIS Finance was the best choice to take the lead because of their industry expertise. The team displayed outstanding professionalism throughout the entire process.
I tasked AURIS Finance with the financial valuation of my company. I particularly appreciated the quality of their final valuation report which reflected the experience and competency of the firm’s teams.
When I decided to retire, AURIS Finance advised me in the sale of my Group, following a structured process. The firm’s teams were always available to me and showed their promptness in their handling of my project to its end.
For the past ten years, AURIS Finance has maintained a trustworthy relationship with us, and has efficiently helped us grow externally.
