Foros is a leading strategic financial and M&A advisory firm with a meaningfully different approach leading to superior outcomes for our clients.

Our approach is different in two main ways: the truly independent nature of our advice and the depth, rigor and intellectual integrity of our analysis. Our advice is independent and unconflicted – we bank individual companies rather than industries, we pursue long term value versus short term transactions, we are not a lender or customer of our clients, and we do not work for activist investors.

We take time to develop differentiated analyses and customized recommendations driven by our willingness to challenge conventional wisdom and our tireless quest for the right answer. And we tell it like it is: if a transaction isn’t right for you, we say so.

Over the course of our client engagements, we act as an independent thought partner and advisor not only on M&A related situations, but also on the broad range of strategic and financial issues our clients encounter in the management of their business.

We believe our approach produces superior long-term outcomes for our clients.


We make a serious and thoughtful commitment to our clients that makes us
true partners.

We rigorously pursue the right solution in every situation by tirelessly questioning conventional wisdom to identify a differentiated answer.

Intellectual integrity informs all we do even if that means advising against a proposed transaction.


We are privileged to work with outstanding organizations.
