ABOUT US

 

“Impossible tasks are usually never attempted. 
But usually they are impossible because they are never attempted.” 

 


BENEDETTI & ASSOCIATES ("B&A") is an adviser for corporate finance and strategic development transactions, specialising in the electricity and renewable energy sectors.

Our expertise lies in advising our clients on the significant financial options available to them as business owners. This includes managing a marketing process to sell the company, raising capital to fund growth or other business acquisition as part of an expansion strategy.

Over the last 20 years, we have established important relationships and experiences, carrying out numerous tasks, also for the Italian Public Administration.
 
We are also a reference point for North European investors in Italy.
