One of the main consequence of the financial crisis which began in 2007 was the massive economical and philosophical destabilization of the global financial industry. After decades of unabated growth and consolidation towards the universal and integrated model, the investment banking panorama witnessed the emergence of new smaller firms, positioning themselves as highly specialized in pure advisory business, fully independent and customer-oriented. Strongly believing that timing was right given the shift of the Corporate Finance paradigm post-crisis, VULCAIN was launched in 2009 as a independent firm offering international advisory services combining Strategy, M&A, Financing and Restructuring advisory, tracing its origins back to the traditional merchant banking model.


We put corporate strategy at the heart of our work aiming at redefining the model of merchant banking. We distinguish ourselves through our capability to combine strategic, operational and financial expertise with state of the art transaction execution skills and professionalism, allowing us to advise efficiently on complex transactions such as cross-border deals, corporate restructurings, recapitalizations, spin-offs, carve-outs and strategic business shifts. VULCAIN builds confident relationships serving its clients on an ongoing basis and on all types of transactions, specifically during complex international situations.


Faithful to our culture of partnership, we believe advisory services are of better use to clients if based on a long term relationship and built both a transactional and a strategic perspective. We aim to develop an in-depth understanding of our customers' markets, adopt a creative approach, think outside of the box. We contribute to build tailor-made solutions, using our four set of competencies (Strategic advisory, M&A, Financing, Restructuring), always integrating the client's problems. Entrepreneurs, we believe in teamwork and are fully committed to deliver a zero-default execution, from start to finish.
