“We intend to leverage the strengths of our respective franchises—namely, Guggenheim Securities’ investment banking, research, capital markets and securities distribution capabilities and PFC Energy’s extensive strategic and operational knowledge of the global energy industry. Our alliance will provide clients with financial services unavailable elsewhere, and it will unite two forward-looking organizations, both of which are dedicated to serving their clients as trusted advisors.”
Robin West, PFC Energy’s chairman, founder and CEO, added: “Over the past 27 years, PFC Energy has developed an exceptional franchise advising the global leaders of the oil and gas industry regarding corporate strategy, acquisitions and divestitures, portfolio optimization, above-ground risk and project execution.”
“Our strategic alliance with Guggenheim Securities is a natural extension of our current activities. It will allow us to further benefit from our intellectual capital while enhancing Guggenheim Securities’ growing investment banking franchise. Our firms are confident that this alliance will benefit our respective clients by combining the expertise and experience of our firms in a valuable package.”
