Headwaters is a global firm. We are not big fans of “dots on the map”, but we do care – a lot – about access to corporations and markets around the world. Real access, not just dots. Relationship-based, in the local language, with mutual professional respect. We have this. Our global partnerships are meaningful to us. We are active literally every day around the world, working with investment banking leaders in local markets to expand our reach on behalf of our clients, and to keep a pulse on global sector trends. In our 15 year history, over 30% of our business involves a cross border component.
We are citizens of the world and are accustomed to operate in various languages across multiple cultures. Amongst others, our bankers speak Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, German, French and Korean.
Within the Americas, Headwaters knows and understands Latin America extremely well. Our local Latin America access enables us to have proprietary deal flow across telecom, industrial technologies, energy, construction, real-estate and the food and drink sectors, just to name a few. We also enjoy fantastic access to proprietary capital sources, including in-region ultra-high-net-worth individuals.
We complement our direct reach by being the exclusive US member of a strategic global partnership comprising 17 firms spanning 42 offices in 30 countries. Our partners employ 240+ banking professionals organized around industry specialist groups.
