We founded Agentis Capital in 2009 in response to the need for rigorous independent advice grounded in unbiased financial analysis. 

 

Agentis is dedicated to providing our clients with transparent, comprehensive financial advisory services that unlock value at every stage. We have worked on projects in more than 20 countries, completed transactions with more than $12bn in enterprise value, and represented more than 30 clients, many of whom are global leaders in infrastructure.

We believe in the importance of bespoke service, that every transaction is unique, that every valuation starts from a blank page, and that rigorous analysis is fundamental for a successful outcome.

We employ this approach on every project to ensure our clients achieve their optimal outcome.
