Jack Blomfield, partner at William Blair and managing director of the firm’s London office, was named in Financial News’ Rising Stars of Investment Banking list published on 18 July.
The list honors the top 25 emerging investment bankers under the age of 40 serving the UK and European markets.
Blomfield, who joined William Blair in 2010 as an analyst, helps lead service coverage sector in Europe, originating and executing mergers and acquisitions operations.
In January, he became one of the youngest bankers to become a partner at William Blair, a leading global business team. Blomfield has been instrumental in expanding the firm’s investment banking presence in Europe, a team that has grown to 110 bankers in the past year.
“Jack’s achievements highlight his commitment to the team and inspiring others to deliver results for our growing client base in the UK and Europe,” said Anu Sharma, Head of European Banking at William Blair. “This recognition is well-deserved and underlines William Blair’s holistic approach to serving clients across all regions and sectors.”
Blomfield was part of the team that achieved 145% growth in European M&A revenue for the company by 2021, taking the lead on deals such as Blackstone’s investment in Currencies Direct and the sale of the business from Kantar’s Reputation Intelligence to Symphony Technology Group.
He holds a degree in economics and politics from the University of Birmingham.
