The geopolitical and financial market turbulence seen in 2023 led to instability in the banking system, most dramatically with the collapse of Silicon Valley Bank in February and Credit Suisse in March. These headwinds triggered a 20-40% reduction in investment banking revenues among the banking peer group. Throughout our 27-year history, the hallmark of Bryan Garnier has been our ability to adapt to changing market conditions. In that respect, 2023 was no exception. 

Bryan Garnier has emerged as a resilient force, achieving significant milestones and advising record setting transactions in the Healthcare, Software & Fintech, Energy Transition & Sustainability, Industrial Tech and NextGen Consumer sectors. In addition to seeing strength across our M&A and growth financing in both private and public markets, we were also delighted with the success of our Debt Capital Advisory business. 

Thanks to our focus on the Healthcare and Technology related sectors, a significant cohort of our clients have a positive Environmental Social & Governance (ESG) impact. Protecting the planet is an important part of our mission, and we attach great importance to our role of providing creative capital-raising solutions to our client base in energy transition and sustainability.
