Introducing ATB M&A Advisory Services

Posted on: May 17, 2016 | Author: ATB Corporate Financial Services

ATB is striving to be the bank for entrepreneurs and we believe that takes more than just knowing a company’s financial statements or the industry in which they operate. It’s about listening to our customers and taking the time to build deep relationships to better understand how we can help them achieve their business objectives and personal goals. That is why in September of 2015 Alf Sailer joined the team to launch the ATB M&A Advisory Services group, focused on advising Alberta entrepreneurs as they grow, transition or transact through any stage of the business life cycle.

We know the challenges that exist in the market and we’re here to provide the advice you need to achieve success. As we continuously seek ways to deliver the best service across Alberta, we are excited to announce two additions to our M&A Advisory Services team, Vincent Kong and Scott Parslow.

This team of professionals will be a key part of our new engaged client model, focusing on divestitures, mergers, acquisitions and restructuring for mid-market public and private companies.
