George Osborne joins boutique investment bank Robey Warshaw as he eschews a portfolio of wide ranging roles to become a full-time merger and acquisitions banker

The former Chancellor will step down from his current position as Editor-in-Chief of the Evening Standard and Senior Advisor to Blackrock in late March, and will join Robey Warshaw as a full-time partner in April

Robey Warshaw, based in London, has advised some of the UK’s biggest deals since its inception in 2013, including Comcast’s successful takeover bid for Sky

The appointment of Osborne marks the first expansion of the partnership beyond the three founding members Sir Simon Robey, Simon Warshaw and Philip Apostolides

“We founded Robey Warshaw eight years ago to help our customers get the most out of our collective abilities, and we remain committed to that goal,” said a Robey Warshaw spokesman

“We believe that George will greatly improve the way we advise our clients. He brings a wealth of experience and expertise to his team that he has led in global finance over the past decade

“We remain very ambitious about the future of our company and believe that George will help expand our reach and what we can offer our customers without changing the philosophy or ethos of our company ”

Robey Warshaw has made a name for himself as one of the key players in a booming M&A market since it was founded by three prominent city dealmakers

Robey Warshaw’s main customers include Centrica, Vodafone, BP and the London Stock Exchange, which the bank acquired in its recent $ 27 billion acquisition of Refinitiv USD has advised

Osborne said, “Robey Warshaw is the best of the best, advising great companies on how to grow I am proud to join this world class team ”
