San Francisco – March 23, 2022 – Finalis, the world's fastest-growing dealmaking platform for dealmakers, is proud to announce it is Certified™ by Great Place to Work®. The prestigious award is based entirely on feedback from current employees working at Finalis. This year, 100% of employees said it’s a great place to work—43% higher than the average U.S. company. 

Great Place to Work® is the global authority on workplace culture, employee experience, and the leadership behaviors proven to deliver market-leading revenue, employee retention and increased innovation. 

“Great Place to Work Certification™ isn’t something that comes easily—it takes ongoing dedication to the employee experience,” said Sarah Lewis-Kulin, vice president of global recognition at Great Place to Work. “It’s the only official recognition determined by employees’ real-time reports of their company culture. Earning this designation means that Finalis is one of the best companies to work for in the country.” 

“We are thrilled to be Great Place to Work-Certified™ as we consider employee experience a top priority at Finalis,” said Finalis Founder and CEO Federico Baradello. “Since launching in 2020, we’ve become the fastest growing investment-banking-as-a-service platform in the country and we owe our continued success to our team of dedicated employees. I want to personally thank each and every Finalis employee across the globe for all they do to earn this incredible recognition, and I look forward to what we can accomplish together in 2022 and beyond.” 

Finalis will soon announce the launch of its category-making Mandate Marketplace™, a first-of-its kind platform that enables boutique investment banks to source deal flow in an easy-to-use, one-stop-shop. The Mandate Marketplace™is an initiative all employees across the company have been deeply involved and invested in; the Marketplace is the platform that Finalis seeks to create, in its effort to positively impact and disrupt the investment banking space. 

According to Great Place to Work research, job seekers are 4.5 times more likely to find a great boss at a Certified great workplace. Additionally, employees at Certified workplaces are 93% more likely to look forward to coming to work, and are twice as likely to be paid fairly, earn a fair share of the company’s profits, and have a fair chance at promotion.
