Axial Investment Banking Partners – 2022 Results


In 2022, Axial’s Investment Banking Partners brought 327 new transactions to market via Axial, resulting in 2,650 signed NDAs. Partners successfully closed 61 deals in the calendar year 2022, according to data shared with Axial.   

Axial Partners, who were collectively featured 71 times across Axial’s League Tables and Industry Top 50 reports, represent less than 1% of active sell-side members on the Axial platform.  They have each established a reputation for client quality, sell-side process effectiveness, and high close rates.  

Congratulations to each of these lower middle market investment banks and M&A advisory firms for their dealmaking achievements in 2022.

About Axial’s Investment Banking Partner Program

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:

  • Preferred Events Attendance

Demand for Axial event participation has recently increased significantly. Partners gain preferred access to Axial events.

  • Earned Media Inclusion

Partners are preferred sources for featured articles and are invited to participate in Axial podcasts and expert member panels.

  • New Client Introductions

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.

  • Enhanced Account Coverage

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.
