Investment Bankers to the Middle Market

Toronto West Office

At CFA Toronto, we passionately believe that the people who spent their lives building a successful business should be fairly compensated for their work. We also believe that companies can significantly improve their businesses by having a great acquisition program.

Our goal is to provide outstanding M&A advisory services globally on lower mid-market transactions. That’s why we wake up every day to best represent our clients in mergers and acquisitions, divestitures, financing and valuations.

Working with publicly traded companies, privately owned businesses, management teams and financial sponsor clients, our philosophy and experience serves the needs of our clients in every single transaction.

With deep connections in key economies around the world we are uniquely positioned to bring immediate momentum to client divestiture and acquisition programs through our global network of relationships, access to decision makers, and knowledge of emerging opportunities.

Trust our track record.
