Astor Group helps clients succeed without interfering with what makes them special. By leveraging the talents of our team and the reach of our global network, our clients enjoy an unmatched level of expertise and the business opportunities that come with it.
Whatever the initial objective, our participation consistently makes life easier for our clients by shielding them from the ups and downs that are inherent in any transaction. Moreover, we feel strongly that our unique experiences benefit clients that would not otherwise be able to leverage our diverse resources to grow their businesses.
Our clients tend to agree.
While working on a transaction more than a decade ago, two friends stayed up late one night discussing business and life, passion, and responsibility. In an industry of black knights and hostile takeovers, was it possible to do well for our clients and still do good for the world?
We decided to give it a try. And the Astor Group was born.
An essential principle on which the Astor Group was founded was to always place ethics over ease. What does this mean? It means worrying about doing what is right rather than about doing what is easy right now.
While profits are critical to our success, we believe that money only has value when it is used to improve the lives of our clients and families, our friends, and strangers. As a result of this conviction, a portion of our profits are invested in charitable programs around the world.
While our individual backgrounds include investment banking and law, strategic consulting and sales, and marketing, our principals have all worked as entrepreneurs or run large organizations. Despite our varied pasts, we share an enthusiasm for helping companies grow.
We recognize that our clients are much more than legal entities - they are individuals whose trust we earn in every interaction. Even more than the results we achieve, the character we exhibit provides the foundation for our relationships.
As a result of our diverse experiences, we understand the difficult choices that must be made for a company to succeed in challenging times. Together, we help our clients create whatever conditions are necessary to achieve desired objectives - whether we are positioning a company for sale before it runs out of capital, helping entrepreneurs realize an exit or accelerating a company's growth to help it go public.
