Friday 08 February 2019

8 February 2019 - US-based middle market investment banking firm East Wind Advisors has continued its expansion and combined with Daroth Capital Advisors, a firm started by Peter Rothschild in 2002 to provide investment banking services for the middle market, East Wind said.

Peter Rothschild, Founder and Principal of Daroth, has joined East Wind as a partner.

Since its formation in 2002, East Wind Advisors' mission has been to provide bulge-bracket M and A and Corporate Finance advisory services to companies across the corporate life cycle and financial sponsors.

The firm initially covered the Education Technology and Services and Media and Entertainment sectors and then expanded to service clients in the Consumer and Retail sector.

Peter Rothschild will lead the firm's General Industry and Special Situations Group, which will strengthen the firm's ability to service clients outside its industry focus, as well as expand and deepen its capabilities in areas such as leveraged finance.

Prior to founding Daroth, which has completed over USD 7bn of M and A and financing transactions, Rothschild was a managing director and co-head of the Leveraged Finance and Industrial Finance groups at Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein and its predecessor Wasserstein Perella.

Rothschild was a senior managing director and Head of the Natural Resources Group at Bear Stearns prior to Wasserstein and was one of the founders of the firm's Leveraged Finance and Financial Buyer Coverage groups.

Rothschild currently serves as a director of The Wendy's Company (NASDAQ: WEN).

East Wind Advisors is an independent investment banking firm founded in 2002 to provide bulge-bracket quality advisory services to a client base ranging from large cap to middle market, emerging growth and venture stage companies and financial sponsors.

Daroth Capital Advisors provides a full range of financial advisory services to companies, financial sponsors, and institutional investors including advice regarding M and A transactions, financings and strategic planning.
