Jefferies, a US-based investment bank, has announced plans to expand its EMEA presence by establishing an office in Amsterdam.
The new office, which will be the firm’s eighth in EMEA, will serve clients across Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg (Benelux).
Jefferies Benelux investment banking head Kasper van Griensven will spearhead a seven-member team in Amsterdam. Griensven previously served as the Benelux Investment Banking head at Deutsche Bank.
Jefferies also appointed Serge Fielmich as its head of Benelux M&A. Fielmich most recently was head of Benelux M&A at Deutsche Bank.
Jefferies European head of investment banking Dominic Lester said: “In recent years, we have seen increasing activity from clients in the Benelux region and our Amsterdam office strongly positions us to serve those clients’ investment banking needs.”
Jefferies’ EMEA footprint also includes offices in London, Frankfurt, Paris, Milan, Stockholm, Zurich and Dubai. In Spain, Jefferies has a joint venture with the local financial advisory firm Arcano.
