January 21. 2015 | The investment arm of Bank Leumi in Israel, Leumi Partners, signed an exclusive investment banking collaboration deal with Stifel, Nicolaus & Company. Stifel, Nicolaus & Company is one of the leading mid-market investment banks in North America and will work together with Leumi Partners to provide investment banking solutions for Israeli companies. Leumi Partners sees a growing demand by middle-market companies in Israel to expand internationally and seek out capital-raising alternatives, which is why they have turned to Stifel for assistance in providing such a service. “These strengths are expected to not only enhance Leumi Partners’ targeted client offerings,” added Prof. Danny Tsiddon, Deputy CEO of Leumi and Chairman of LP, “but will also contribute in a substantial way to Leumi’s newly established tech banking platform, LeumiTech.” Leumi Partners is headed by CEO Yaron Bloch.
