William Blair opens new office in Amsterdam

William Blair, a US-based investment manager, has bolstered its presence in Europe by launching a new office in the Dutch capital of Amsterdam.

At present, the firm has more than 20 offices across the globe.

Its combined staff headcount in Amsterdam, Frankfurt, and London is nearly 90.

Commenting on the expansion, William Blair head of European investment banking, Anu Sharma, said: “We have exceptional momentum in our European client advisory business and are committed to continue scaling our business on-the-ground.

“We already have a long track record of generating exceptional outcomes for Benelux [Belgium, Netherlands, and Luxembourg] clients, and the opening of our Amsterdam office is aligned with that.”

Earlier this year, William Blair established a new office in Baltimore, Maryland.

The office opening in Amsterdam comes shortly after the appointment of Maarten Meurs as a managing director in the firm’s Financial Sponsors Group.

Meurs is responsible for driving the growth of the firm in the Benelux region.

In the last five years, William Blair is said to have carried out 30 client engagements worth €6.5bn in the Benelux market.

The firm was set up in 1935 by William McCormick Blair. It offers a range of services such as investment banking, investment management, as well as private wealth management.
