Dominique Bazy and Pascal Hervé announce the creation of Barber Hauler Capital Advisers.

Paris, 9 September 2009 – Today, Dominique Bazy and Pascal Hervé announced the creation of Barber Hauler Capital Advisers, a financial advisory boutique which will provide primarily financial advisory services in connection with mergers and acquisitions and financial restructuring.

The firm will be jointly held by the two founders who have been working together at UBS for the past 10 years.

Dominique Bazy said: “We started thinking about Barber Hauler when we thought that the model must change, i.e. a few years ago already. We want to address a segment of corporates, managements or private equity funds that need tailor-made services simply because their situations are highly complex. Today, pulling a deal requires more than just skills or technicalities, it requires talent. We hope that our clients are going to favourably welcome Barber Hauler and that we will be able to build a robust and sustainable franchise in France. “

Pascal Hervé added: “We do believe that there is a life outside mainstream investment banking. The industry needs to continually adapt itself and change its models of deal-making. Corporates have changed and are not prepared to pay for armies of bankers processing transactions. They want smart sourcing of transactions, absolute confidentiality of information and insist on independent advice. Barber Hauler is better equipped to address these aspects than any other firm on the market.”
