Lazard Capital Markets LLC was formed in 2005 concurrent with the recapitalization of Lazard Ltd. and initial public offering of Lazard Ltd. Headquartered in New York’s Rockefeller Center, we continue all of the capital markets activities formerly conducted by Lazard Frères & Co. LLC. Lazard Frères & Co. LLC, one of the world's preeminent financial advisory and asset management firms, operates from 40 cities across 26 countries in North America, Europe, Australia, Asia and South America. With origins dating back to 1848, the firm provides advice on mergers and acquisitions, restructuring and capital raising, as well as asset management services, to corporations, partnerships, institutions, governments and individuals.
Lazard Capital Markets provides research, sales & trading, and underwriting in the areas of equity, fixed income and convertible securities. As a separate entity, Lazard Capital Markets maintains a business alliance agreement with Lazard Group for the continuation of certain historical relationships. Pursuant to such business alliance, our clients are offered tailored advice, strategies and solutions to corporations and governments worldwide to facilitate their access to public and private capital.
Our relationships with leading institutional investors, including mutual funds, hedge funds, pension managers, government agencies, banks and insurance companies, have been earned over decades of providing premium service.
