Lazard is the world's leading independent financial advisory and asset management firm. We serve clients with thoughtful advice and effective solutions to strategic and financial matters. Founded in 1848, we operate in 42 cities across 27 countries around the world. Our deep roots in local business centers form a global network of relationships with key decision-makers in corporations, governments and investing institutions.
Lazard’s purpose is to serve clients. From our beginning, this basic premise has shaped our culture and structure.
Our clients rely on us for sound judgment: As a firm built on advice, we value the wisdom that comes from experience. We put a premium on attracting and retaining the best people.
We value individual differences: The history of Lazard is one of entrepreneurs. We know that multiple perspectives, openly debated, encourage the best solutions for our clients.
Partnering globally makes us stronger: By working together across borders, we leverage Lazard’s global network of relationships to achieve extraordinary results for clients.
We anticipate changes rather than react to them: We serve our clients best when we are leaders. Through insight and innovation, we create opportunities rather than chase them.
We have the conviction to take bold stands for our clients: Our long-term success is based on the results we achieve for clients. We are exhaustive in our research and precise in our analysis.
