Investment Banking Professionals
Our bankers are experts at executing client-focused engagements and delivering superior results. Each engagement is staffed with at least two Senior Investment Bankers that remain active in the engagement through closing. At Hilliard Lyons, projects are not “handed off” to junior bankers for execution.
