Department of Finance Financial Advisor Framework
Following an open procurement procedure (pursuant to relevant EU legislation) which was conducted in 2018, the Department of Finance appointed financial advisers to a Framework to advise it on financial matters such as the future disposal of the State’s banking sector investments and other ad hoc assignments that may arise from time to time.
The appointment of financial advisors to this Framework can be regarded as prudent planning to ensure that the State is in a position to receive necessary advice in a timely and cost efficient manner.
The Framework has been constituted for the provision of the following services:
- Framework Lot 1 – Capital markets, strategic, M&A and restructuring advice
- Framework Lot 2 – General financial advice
- Framework Lot 3 – Capital markets distribution services
Firms are appointed to the Framework for an initial period of three years (up to October 2021) with an option to extend by one additional year (up to October 2022). Details of the members of each of the lots are set out below.
