We provide clients with a global network of prospective buyers and senior decision-makers, as well as vast industry knowledge, perspective and intelligence.

Since its inception in 1987, JEGI has established an impeccable reputation in the global media, information, marketing, software and tech-enabled services sectors. With more than 700 transactions completed, JEGI has unprecedented knowledge and understanding of the core markets it serves. The rigorous and disciplined process JEGI has developed is matched by the professional integrity the team brings to each and every client engagement and its relentless focus on maximizing value. It’s these characteristics that have delivered superior performance for the firm over the past 30 years.
As the media and technology sectors continue to expand, JEGI’s clients need an investment bank that can provide global coverage and market intelligence, as well as access to prospective buyers and investors worldwide. In 2012, JEGI formed a strategic partnership with UK firm Clarity to maximize value for clients. The joint rebrand in 2016 further strengthens the relationship and highlights the very successful partnership to-date. With Clarity, we have created a powerful global platform to drive growth and provide international reach that will benefit the firms and clients alike.

The firm maintains an extensive and proprietary industry M&A database, providing clients with unparalleled access to information about relevant transaction multiples, transaction history and market dynamics. The team uses its deep research capabilities and extensive market knowledge to produce highly regarded industry reports and presentations. Many of these can be accessed in the Resources section.
