Who we are

“STJ really is different from all other advisors, with their data-driven approach and focus on unbiased capital markets advice”

Company Executive, German dual-track sale (IPO and M&A)

STJ is the leading independent global Equity Capital Markets (“ECM”) advisory firm, with professionals based in all major world markets. STJ’s senior team includes the former heads of ECM and equity research teams from over a dozen major investment banks, providing an unprecedented depth of experience and close ongoing contact with all the major banks. STJ professionals have completed some of the largest and most complex transactions across the globe during their careers, advising on over 750 IPOs, follow-on offerings, capital raises and dual track sale processes to raise over €250 billion across all major industry sectors.

We focus on advising management teams and major shareholders on all ECM activities, providing experienced and independent advice, innovative solutions and expert transaction services. Our advice is always based on an unbiased, data-supported evaluation of the best course of action, to enable clients to make timely fully-informed decisions and achieve the best result on any proposed transaction. We also ensure that investors have more direct input when participating in an offering. We are also the only advisor with former top-ranked equity research analysts on our team, which addresses intensifying market shortcomings and enables STJ to bring an enhanced market perspective to our clients.

STJ provides pure capital markets advice and services, without the conflicts that arise within bank multi-product platforms or M&A advisory firms. We are ECM specialists, focused on delivering a market-based approach to ensure clients meet their objectives.

We have developed our proprietary "Atlas" investor database, which gives us an invaluable set of information that we utilise to vastly improve investor targeting and engagement.

We have a close working relationship with all the major bank capital markets teams which helps contribute to our unique investor insights.

“We were told by the lead bank that they found STJ’s advice to the stakeholders on the key offering terms very helpful to the process.”
