The conference room at a reputable organization was fast transforming into a war room as the clock ticked by. The board of directors were working with the CEO to zero in on a decision regarding whether the company should continue to grow organically, raise additional capital to grow more aggressively, or exit the business now. It was one of those junctures when decision making could prove to be difficult for businesses without an expert advisor. To fully capitalize on their valuation’s potential, the company wanted to benefit from senior-level advisory and proven, real-world expertise. After going through extensive market research, they found the partner they were waiting for. And it was not any middle-of-the-road organization offering templatized valuation advisory services. Objective, Investment Banking and Valuation was a company like no other.
As soon as Objective, Investment Banking and Valuation stepped in, they set up an evaluation and analysis framework to help the client strategically understand the best possible option that would create the maximum value for the shareholders. The company also assisted the client in evaluating those scenarios and modeling them to arrive at fact-based conclusions. It helped the board of directors and the CEO gain the much-needed insight to create a better strategic framework according to their business goals. “In addition to our strong technical evaluation, our industry expertise enabled us to offer them unique and interesting insights into their complex, strategic decisions,” says Channing D. Hamlet, Managing Director of Objective, Investment Banking and Valuation.
Most businesses don’t quite get the valuation they deserve in the middle and lower-middle markets. The reason being a majority of valuation service providers lack relevant expertise in offering well-planned advisory services for elaborate business models due to their limited scope of experience in working with large organizations.
On the contrary, Objective, Investment Banking and Valuation draws upon years of valuation experience, a senior team that mostly comes from the Big Four banks, 1000’s of valuations completed, and over 500 M&A advisory engagements to rise as the quintessential partner for middle and lower-middle firms that are in need of world-class, industry-specific advisory services.
“Our holistic stance in advisory services, coupled with our affiliation with an investment bank allows us to bring a unique mix of expert valuation work and IB advisory that consistently maximizes our client’s valuation advisory results,”

states Christian Dougherty, Managing Director of Valuation Advisory Services at Objective, Investment Banking and Valuation. All senior managing directors who lead projects and communicate with clients come with an unrivaled expertise in working with the largest institutions in the world (including the Big Four). They regularly advise their clients’ board of directors and strategize with them on their business initiatives to make effective decisions centered around the stakeholder’s objectives and the future of the company.
“The combination of our hard work, collaboration, and our unwavering integrity enable us to meet our clients’ objectives which is the foundation upon which we make decisions and define our success,” remarks Hamlet. Staying true to their name, the company identifies the client’s long-term and short-term objectives to get an understanding of their true goals, the business model, and upcoming business initiatives. Only after gaining an in-depth overview of their client’s modus operandi, the company initiates a valuation project while offering world-class advisory consultation in order to achieve a premium valuation. Their quarterly and annual valuation reports are routinely used to advise the board of directors, business owners and investors, enabling them to have the necessary data to make complex financial and strategic decisions.
Having said that, it should be quite unsurprising how the company’s clients are satisfied with their responsive, client-focused, personalized, and easy-to-work-with business stance. With a steadfast commitment to those values, the company has its eyes set on the future, refusing to settle for “good enough”. They are currently looking forward to ramping up the team and on-boarding a lot of promising talent to diversify their markets and expand their knowledge base. “We will continue to not only provide expert valuation services to our clients but also mitigate their long-term risks and enhance their value as an organization,” concludes Dougherty.
