Chestnut, founded in 2002, is an independent financial advisory firm focused on mergers & acquisitions (M&A), debt and equity financing, financial restructuring, investments, and more. Since its inception, Chestnut successfully and discretely executed more than 220 transactions and assignments.

Based on Chestnut’s reputation in providing pragmatic (ad-hoc) advice and deal execution experience, Chestnut maintains close working relationships with a growing circle of clients. In doing so, over the years Chestnut has gained a profound understanding of financial matters, independent of sector.

While supporting companies and its shareholders in creating and realizing value, we find most challenge in complex (financial) situations.

As a result of our focus on complexity rather than sector, we are able to provide a broad range of services, independent of a client’s business, size or industry
