We offer top quality strategic advice. A10’s philosophy is to provide personalized strategic advice and intelligence like a traditional merchant bank, the "old fashioned way”. Our partners are fully dedicated to our clients at every step of the advisory process and the relationship usually continues once the advisory work is complete. Our long-term client relationships are evidence that we strive to add value to our clients continuously, helping them think about strategic issues when their main focus is on managing their existing businesses. We offer independent advice, unencumbered by institutional constraints and conflicts of interest.

Because of having in-depth knowledge of Consumer & Healthcare in Brazil and abroad, we are in an unique position to evaluate Brazilian companies in a global context. We have a web of relationships with the managements of companies in these sectors around the world, which greatly helps us source knowledge and insight.


We prepare custom-made fairness opinions for both public and private companies. We offer for each project an analysis of the highest quality and using rigorous diligence to comply with existing legislation as well as conform to international standards. Our team has worked on several fairness opinions, including acquisitions, divestments, take-privates and related-party transactions for both Brazilian and international clients.


We offer top quality advice to company boards. Our extensive experience in Consumer & Healthcare makes us well qualified to tackle a wide range of issues that the boards of companies in these sectors may wish to address. Our team has been involved in several board advisory projects. The fact that A10 is able to offer an independent opinion, unencumbered by institutional constraints or conflicts of interest, means that our advice can be considered to be fair and reasonable by all key stakeholders, including majority and minority shareholders, executive management and employees.
