access to decision makers
Our range of activities includes investing the partners’ capital, sourcing capital from third parties, and providing strategic, financial and operating advice and support. Our deep strategic and institutional relationships provide unique access to decision makers to accelerate growth and business development.
Etico is derived from the Latin word “ethicus” (meaning ethical) and expresses our commitment to ethical behavior in an industry rocked with opaque and aberrant behavior. With our combined 100 plus years of industry experience, we set out to create a merchant bank rooted in transparent and honest relationships with our clients, customers, counterparties and staff. As trusted advisors, our capital sourcing and advisory businesses offer our global clients custom solutions and strategies to enhance stakeholder value and provide liquid fund growth.
We seek to work with enterprises that:
- Serve a large and growing market
- Possess a unique defensible long term competitive advantage
- Have a management team capable of executing a conservative business plan
- Have visibility for a near term significant value enhancing event
Etico is particularly adept at working with companies facing “disruptive” events to business models, approaches and/or technologies.
