Lazard Ltd operates as a financial advisory and asset management company. The company operates from 42 cities in primary business and financial centers across 27 countries throughout Europe, North America, Asia, Australia, the Middle East, and Central and South America. Segments The company focuses primarily on two segments, Financial Advisory and Asset Management. FINANCIAL ADVISORY This segment offers a range of financial advisory services regarding mergers and acquisitions (M&A) and other strategic matters, restructurings, capital structure, capital raising, and various other financial matters to corporate, partnership, institutional, government, sovereign, and individual clients worldwide. The company provides advice to major decision-makers, senior management, boards of directors, and business owners, as well as governments and governmental agencies. The company builds this segment by fostering long-term, senior level relationships with existing and new clients as their independent advisor on strategic transactions. It provides clients with senior level focus during various phases of transaction execution. The company offers financial advisory services on an international basis, with the establishment of its New York, Paris, and London offices. It maintains a major local presence in the U.S., the United Kingdom, and France, including a network of regional branch offices in the U.S. and France, as well as a presence in Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Chile, China, Colombia, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, the Netherlands, Panama, Peru, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, and Uruguay. The company has a strategic alliance with a financial advisory firm in Mexico to provide global M&A advisory services for clients, both inside and outside of Mexico, who are seeking to acquire or sell assets in Mexico or have interests in other financial transactions with companies in Mexico, and to provide restructuring advisory services to clients in Mexico. In 2012, the company integrated its Brazilian operations based in São Paulo, and established a Lazard Africa initiative to utilize its sovereign and corporate expertise in this improving region, for its clients in both developed and developing countries.
