Axial’s Investment Banking Partner program is a merit-based program driven by the quality of a sell-side member’s transaction processes and outcomes on the Axial platform. Partners enjoy significant additional benefits, including:
Demand for Axial event participation has recently increased significantly. Partners gain preferred access to Axial events.
Partners are preferred sources for featured articles and are invited to participate in Axial podcasts and expert member panels.
Axial Advisor Finder connects exit-minded business owners and portfolio company owners with M&A advisors to explore a transaction. Introductions are confidential, double opt-in, and are chosen based on prior transaction history via the Axial platform. Selection is driven by industry transaction experience, transaction size range of the business, and evidence of multiple successful outcomes.
Partners receive a dedicated Axial account manager to streamline deal creation and deal marketing, facilitate deal status updates, and maintain an up-to-date member profile on the Axial platform and public member directory.
