Sisu Partners is an independent corporate finance advisory firm founded by four well-known corporate financiers in March 2014. We provide advisory services in full range of transactions, including M&A, debt and equity financing and special situations for businesses, private investors, lenders, government agencies, private individuals and families.
The founding partners can draw from vast experience of more than 300 completed transactions, many of them cross-border deals. The size range has been from some tens of millions to the largest deals in the Finnish corporate history, some of which have been public takeovers.
Over the years, we have worked with nearly all listed Finnish companies. We also cover the largest privately owned companies and PE community and have advised many investors in inbound transactions. We start from client’s true needs and offer tailored approach, delivery, solutions and execution excellence on the most complex transactions.
Our client promise is to allocate full attention of at least two senior resources to your transaction. You will gain access to the wide complementary experience, expertise and contact network of Sisu Partners.
Sisu is a Finnish and global word loosely translated as strength of will, determination, perseverance, and acting rationally in the face of adversity. Each mandate is our top priority. Like our name Sisu suggests, we are tenacious, hardworking and hungry and keen to work as trusted partner even in the most challenging assignments.
