Armen A. Grigorian

Co-founder, Managing Partner

Armen works with a limited number of successful entrepreneurs and business families. For decades he had the privilege of working with clients as they transformed from business owners to business families and business dynasties, along the way helping them evaluate and execute capital, investment, and strategies, including key events such as selling or buying businesses, recapitalization, and business and estate transitions. Establishing a valued relationship with clients is essential for Armen. He believes quality advice requires an in-depth understanding of client priorities and strategy, combined with absolute discretion and access to institutional-class resources.

Started his career in 1993 as a commercial banker. In 1994, founded the firm to serve as a U.S. middle-market private equity, private debt, and property investment correspondent for a European-based family office, Nomura and Deutsche Bank. After four years of rapid growth, made the firm part of Lehman Brothers, continuing to lead the business, now as part of a $300 billion global investment bank. In 2002, separated the business unit from Lehman Brothers, continuing to grow it as an independent firm.
