History

After 11 years of successful operations, B&A is more than ever aiming at excellency in financial advisory

B&A Investment Bankers was established by Cyril Benoit in 2011 to advise select clients on major growth and strategic decisions, such as mergers, acquisitions, investments and other financial transactions.

Our professionals come from a diversified cultural background and have worked at top-notch global institutions, where they acquired the strongest technical skills. Our Senior Leadership gained experience on the field as former investors, entrepreneurs, government officials, and not only as advisors.

In 2012, Emmanuel Gros joined the firm to open B&A’s Shanghai office, after successfully advising on the acquisition of France’s Diva Bordeaux by Chinese agro-food giant Bright Food.

In 2019, Khaled Igue joined the firm to reinforce and expand B&A activities in Africa, adivising medium and large corporates, institutions and governments.

Since then, B&A has continuously developed a well-recognized expertise and track-record on international transactions, with a truly differentiating presence and know-how on Chinese-related deals.
