Aentib Group opens new office in Montreal

The Aentib Group has launched a new office in Montreal. According to the company, Aentib’s new Canadian headquarters will focus mainly in the Americas “but leverage the global network of institutions and advisors that Aentib (with other offices in China and Germany) is known for.”


MONTREAL, QUEBEC–(Marketwired – Feb. 18, 2015) – THE AENTIB GROUP, a boutique financial advisory and investment firm, today announced the opening of a new office in Montréal, with the mandate to attract foreign capital into the evolving Canadian market, as well as invest in the creation of companies and venture initiatives.

Co-founder of the Aentib Group, Jean Salomé insists that, “Montreal and Canada are great places to be doing business. My foreign direct investment activities working for the Quebec government in the early 90’s, as well as Aentib’s legacy, gave us deep roots in Canada, so it makes perfect sense for us to have a permanent presence here.” The Aentib Group has long been instrumental in shaping the venture capital and private equity ecosystem in Canada, having catalyzed local venture funds such as Rho Canada, TVM Canada and Entrepia Canada.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our firm’s 20th anniversary this year and bring our unique company building and investment expertise to Canada. It’s all about making an impact,” says Mr. Salomé. Aentib’s new Canadian headquarters, located in the Telus Tower in downtown Montreal, will invest in and serve clients mainly in the Americas but leverage the global network of institutions and advisors that Aentib (with other offices in China and Germany) is known for. This combination of local presence and global reach puts Aentib in a class of its own in its ability to attract deal flow, capital, talent and ideas.

Paul Dawalibi, Managing Director of the Aentib Group sees “a long and bright future for the business in Canada.” Innovation and creativity are at the core of Aentib’s values. Mr. Dawalibi insists, “We aren’t investment bankers. We are company builders and entrepreneurs and that’s the approach we take with a client even if we are just advising them on a capital raise. We are already investing to create new companies and new funds here and that’s what we are most excited about. People work with us because we’re different and we embrace that.”
