Goren Capital Group (GCG): Best Investment Bank Israel 2021


In 1997, “deal maker” Samuel Gortler founded Goren Capital Group (GCG) — an Israeli investment bank that promises zero conflict of interests. A strict code of conduct ensures operations are compliant with governance and regulations across national and global markets. GCG recently finalised three major transactions with a shipping group, a power station and two Israeli infrastructure groups. GCG advisory services cover sell-side, buy-side, corporate divestitures, management-led buy-ins and buy-outs and strategic lead advisory, as well as debt, mezzanine and equity acquisition financing. GCG advises top-tier companies on financial policy and capital structures and offers advisory on financing alternatives, including the issuance of local and global debt. Its corporate finance services extend to mergers and acquisitions, project financing, privatisation and capital markets advisory, with GCG acting as arranger and co-ordinator. The group nurtures long-term relationships with a network of stakeholders that includes international credit agencies, institutional lenders and corporate leaders. It claims the distinction of being the only Israeli firm to offer local as well as global financing alternatives, and these bragging rights are backed up by a track record of successful transactions using foreign funding sources. A partnership with Greenhill, an independent investment bank with 15 offices on five continents, extends GCG’s access to worldwide advisory capabilities and cross-industry expertise. The CFI.co judging panel announces Goren Capital Group as winner of the 2021 award for Best Investment Bank (Israel).
