We are committed to the pursuit of excellence, and for this reason we concentrate on sectors and markets in which we can excel. Our influence and reputation flow from the quality of our people and our track record of high performance execution and achieving superior results for our clients.

From our headquarters in New York, we serve a wide range of clients looking for independent advice, free from conflicts of interest, and assistance on their most important strategic issues.
Ashton Stewart was founded with the goal of providing high quality, creative, client-centric advisory services to individuals, executive management, and corporate boards seeking advice and capital for growth, expansion, and acquisitions. We take a long-term approach to developing and maintaining client relationships, often working to meet our clients’ multiple transaction, financing and strategic needs. We combine extensive Wall Street, operating, and private equity investment experience with a dedication to personal service, providing our clients with a multi-discipline perspective to deliver high quality investment banking and advisory services.
Our private firm is focused on remaining independent and international in our reach. We are devoted to our clients and it is this strong commitment that allows us to continue to exceed expectations. Our broad experience, integrity, rigorous and creative custom approach enables our firm to deliver objective and insightful service to each client.
Ashton Stewart, Inc. is a registered broker/dealer member FINRA and SIPC. Offers of securities or investment advisory services may be made only pursuant to appropriate offering or other disclosure documents, and only after prospective investors have had the opportunity to discuss all matters concerning the prospective investment or engagement with their adviser, the issuers of the securities or Ashton Stewart. Non-securities services may be offered through affiliated, non-regulated entities.
Our Investment Banking practice is integrated into the firm’s expanding institutional and individual advisory foundation, creating a comprehensive platform that delivers superior transaction execution, sustained follow through and long-term client support. We work with clients on a highly-personalized basis, providing exceptional service, commitment and senior level attention.
We offer corporate financial advisory, mergers and acquisitions and capital-formation services to middle-market corporations, partnerships, family offices and institutions around the world. Although we have a strong understanding of the needs and challenges facing middle-market companies and their shareholders, we always start by understanding the unique objectives and circumstances for each engagement, to ensure results are aligned with our clients’ goals. In the areas of private equity and debt placements, the investment banking practice is supported by the distribution capabilities of our Asset Management and Capital Markets division.
At Ashton Stewart – Private Funds Group, our professionals deliver an integrated service to clients, and have built a broad network of successful relationships across the globe, raising capital from investors based in North America, Europe and the Middle East. We have advised funds executing a wide variety of strategies, including European and US mid-market buyouts, emerging markets, infrastructure, mezzanine, distressed assets, and venture capital.
