For more than two decades, investment banks have been consolidating or becoming part of large, often global financial institutions. While this may be good for partners and shareholders, we believe the best interests and objectives of clients have often been left out of the equation.

In this environment, senior professionals from Nashville’s investment banking community formed Avondale Partners in June 2001, opening our offices on September 4th, just one week before 9/11. Since our founding, the firm has focused on guiding and serving the changing needs of our clients in a variety of market situations. 

As a testament to our founding philosophy, Avondale has advised clients on over 200 transactions, totaling almost $40 billion. We have had the great fortune to assist companies throughout the US, Europe and Australia, all with one principle in mind – “the client comes first.”
