Comprehensive advice and support you and your company can trust.


Our team has a well-deserved reputation of excellence in providing smart, sensible, and cost-effective M&A Advisory business solutions to our clients.  And although we are primarily an M&A firm, we are also always seeking Real Estate properties of various types and sizes to acquire and invest in.  With regards to Real Estate, we are property-agnostic as we seek to invest in both Residential, Commercial, and Development properties regardless of size or scope.


Often, more than one area of expertise is required when it comes to Mergers & Acquisitions advisory. Here at The Gulf of Paria Group, we specialize in finance, economic analysis, market analysis,  marketing, advertising, consulting, deal structuring, negotiations, asset valuations, and contract preparation. We can advocate for you in many areas of M&A, as we work the deal towards a successful close.

We serve a wide range of clientele, and every client relationship is greatly valued and treated with dignity and respect. Each engagement benefits from the depth and breadth of our expertise.

Private Equity firms especially, value our services as a 'feeder-firm' which brings numerous worthy opportunities their way.
