Firm

Sandler O’Neill + Partners, L.P. is a full-service investment banking firm and broker-dealer focused on the financial services sector. Our clients include a wide variety of financial firms nationwide, and increasingly, around the globe.

We provide the full suite of investment banking services, including merger and acquisition advisory, capital markets, fixed income and equity trading and sales, equity research, balance sheet management, mortgage finance, and consulting services to financial institutions and their investors.

Sandler O’Neill is a partnership and different by design. Since the firm’s founding in 1988, its partners have sought to provide banks, thrifts and other financial services companies with an alternative to large Wall Street banking firms. Our focus has always been to enhance the franchise value of our clients. We provide clients a wealth of experience and knowledge more critical to them today than ever.
