Sternship Advisers is a boutique Perth-based advisory firm established in mid-2017 by the former UBS Perth team.
Sternship prides itself on the provision of trustworthy corporate finance advice by highly experienced senior bankers who are free of conflicts.
In mid-2020, Sternship Advisers merged with Ashanti Capital establishing the Group’s Equity Capital Markets division. Complementing the Corporate Advisory division, Ashanti provides expertise on equity capital markets and help facilitate institutional client transactions, including raising capital for pre-IPOs, IPOs, RTOs, convertibles and second market offerings for listed and unlisted companies.
Ashanti Capital has a strong track record of bringing value-add strategics to client registers complimented by an ultra high net worth distribution network and deep relationships with leading institutions across the Asia Pac region.
Sternship provides leading, independent M&A advice across a wide range of transaction types including:
- Domestic and cross border mergers & acquisitions;
- Takeover defence;
- Strategic investments;
- Trade Sales and demergers;
- Joint venture and farm-in agreements; and
- Management buy-outs and private equity transactions
Sternship clients benefit from direct senior relationships with both domestic and global corporates and with leading institutional investors which shape and influence both the Australian and International equity markets.
