World-class merger and acquisition and capital advisory services for the middle market.

Fidus Partners is an investment bank providing unique capabilities, experience, and industry expertise to its clients.

We specialize in mergers and acquisitions, debt advisory, capital raising, and related investment banking services for private equity firms and other capital providers, public and private corporations, and family-held businesses.

A Private Partnership. Real Scale.

Fidus Partners is a part of Fidus Group, a leading merchant banking platform dedicated to serving the middle market. We offer high-quality advisory services through Fidus Partners, as well as direct-lending capital solutions through our affiliate Fidus Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: FDUS).

Different from boutique firms, the scale of our platform translates into stronger industry and market knowledge, better insights drawn from constant interaction with relevant buyers and investors, and broader execution capabilities.

Different from the largest banks, we are a private partnership, and our most senior and experienced bankers provide hands-on leadership of every client engagement.

Together, our unique capabilities and approach drive better outcomes for our clients.
