Azure Capital welcomes Tim Balston
Tim joins Azure as an Associate Director from Lazard, with 10 years experience providing M&A and strategic advice to clients with a focus on the natural resources sector, having worked on an extensive range of transactions for a number of leading global mining companies and resource focused private equity institutions. Prior to joining Azure, Tim held positions at Lazard, Standard Chartered Bank, Canaccord Genuity and Deloitte across Sydney, London and Perth. Tim graduated from the University of Western Australia in 2007 with a Bachelor of Commerce (Corporate Finance, Financial Accounting, Business Law) and is a qualified Chartered Accountant.
Simon Price, Joint Managing Partner: “We’re really excited to have a seasoned M&A specialist like Tim join the team, bringing in-depth and international natural resources knowledge and relationships, as well as helping us deliver on a busy pipeline of existing engagements.”
Tim Balston, Associate Director: “Azure is a stand-out choice for me as a corporate advisory house. I am particularly interested in the international linkages available through the broader Natixis network that Azure has recently joined, allowing Azure to continue providing advisory services with a ‘boutique philosophy’ but adding access to a global network and strong visibility to global capital and commodity flows through the strong Natixis mining and energy franchise.”
