exington aims to conduct its business in a socially responsible manner and is committed to being a responsible member of the communities in which it operates. In everything Lexington does, it aims to be commercial and fair, to maintain its integrity and professionalism, and to respect the needs of shareholders, suppliers, our people, the local community and the businesses in which we serve. Ethical responsibility and standards are taken into consideration in every aspect of our business.

This spirit is embodied today in our core values and principles of client focus, integrity, entrepreneurial spirit and teamwork. We have built a culture based on a set of core values that form the foundation for our interaction with our clients. At the core, our personal relationship with our clients is the single most important aspect of our business. Our partnership approach with our clients is fundamental to our success. The starting point in everything we do underlines the key elements of our culture which defines who we are, what we stand for, and what we believe.

Our Mission

Our mission is to build unrivaled partnerships and value for the businesses that we serve. The starting point in everything we do underlines the key elements of our culture coming together as a team to deliver unparallel success to our clients.

Our Beliefs

Our partnership approach with our clients is fundamental to our success. Our relationships are characterized by mutual respect, intellectual honesty, commitment and shared ambitions. Underlying all of our efforts is an overall focus on integrity.

Our Ambitions

We seek to align our ambitions with the ambitions of our client’s, its board and its shareholders. This is because we believe passionately that good people and good business relationships are a major contributing factor to success. Our ambition is to be the investment banking firm of choice.

Our Expectations

Our clients’ needs do not always fit neatly into any one time zone, one product or service area, or one industry group. Business is not done in compartmentalized boxes; it flows freely across borders and sectors of the economy, and we must be ready to provide our know-how, and our intellectual capital, wherever and however it is required.

Our Objective

Our aim is to be one of the leading, boutique investment banking firms serving lower-and-middle-market companies in North America. To do so, requires that we never underestimate the importance of chemistry and trust on your selection of an investment bank.

Respect for Each Other

We value the contributions of individuals throughout the firm and respect their differences, not only because this is the right thing to do, but also because these differences enable us to develop new ways of looking at unique problems. We particularly encourage collegiality and strive to create a work environment, which empowers, rewards and stimulates our people. 

Team Work

We pride ourselves on working together because it helps us deliver the best solutions to our clients. In a business based on talent, we believe that we achieve more by working collectively in teams and leveraging the resources of the entire firm. Our varied experiences, collective aspirations and continuity are important assets in maintaining our momentum. 

Building Value

Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest quality advice and an unwavering level of integrity and intellectual honesty. In everything we do, we are constantly identifying and evaluating ways to add value for our clients; while, at the same time, building on existing strengths and resources of the Firm. 

Commitment to Excellence
We are committed to preserving and strengthening our culture; acting always with an ownership mentality; building and protecting our brand, always doing the right thing; and delivering new and creative solutions for our clients.


We believe that culture matters. Our highly collaborative environment encourages creativity and collegiality that positively impacts our clients and our firm. In everything we do, we strive to maintain our perspective, celebrate our achievements, learn from our mistakes, and share best practices to continuously build the firm's intellectual capital – all to the benefit of our clients.

Our focus on all of these together will continue to define our success...
