Some Words from our Clients

Some Words from our Clients

AGC was referred to me by a friend who was the founder of a technology company AGC helped sell to a major global player. Selecting AGC was one of the best decisions I made throughout the investment process. Sean and the AGC team, who managed the entire process for us, definitely surpassed our expectations and we would have never been able to close this type of a transaction without his consistent guidance. This is even more true given the major headwind that we encountered right before closing - the COVID outbreak. Thanks to our solid performance and Sean's persistence and experience throughout the COVID period, we were able to close a great deal nevertheless.

The AGC team exceeded every expectation, from our initial vetting process through the official closing date. AGC's deep understanding of the financial technology industry, strong relationships with strategic players, and breadth of M&A experience were crucial factors in achieving such a successful result. Ben and team worked tirelessly hand in hand through the entire process. They were always prepared, knowledgeable, and one step ahead of all potential obstacles that could have derailed our deal. We would not have been able to achieve the outcome we did if it were not for the hands-on, partner-led process Ben and his team provided to our team every day.

It was a pleasure working with AGC. Their commitment to the process was palpable. They have a very strong team who were not only super smart and responsive but also insightful and very well versed on our industry. Their partners are very well connected and definitely deserve immense credit in getting us to a very successful deal close. It was an intense process and they were there with us every step of the way. I’d definitely recommend Ben, Linda and the team at AGC to other companies considering a fundraise.
