Oppenheimer Hires Sean Minnihan As Head of Fintech

Oppenheimer & Co. Inc. (“Oppenheimer”) – a leading investment bank, wealth manager, and a subsidiary of Oppenheimer Holdings (NYSE: OPY) – today announced that Sean Minnihan has joined the firm’s Global Technology Investment Banking team in New York as a Managing Director and Head of Financial Technology Investment Banking. This addition is part of a significant strategic expansion of Oppenheimer’s commitment to the technology industry under the leadership of Robin Graham, Head of Technology Investment Banking.

“FinTech companies are among the most innovative, dynamic and disruptive, bringing sweeping changes and efficiencies to the financial services sector across payments, banking, wealth management and insurance,” said Robin Graham. “Oppenheimer’s continued investment in areas of significant new company formation such as FinTech demonstrates our commitment to connecting the emerging cohorts of value-creating private companies to the highest quality sources of growth capital as well as to larger strategic partners. Sean Minnihan’s expertise and experience will provide valuable insight and service to our clients across the FinTech sector.”

Minnihan’s hiring demonstrates the firm’s ongoing commitment to advising the emerging and disruptive technology companies that are addressing the next generation needs of the financial services industry.

“Oppenheimer understands that advancing technology in the financial services vertical is of strategic importance and that business leaders are looking for sources of deep knowledge and technical expertise to help them navigate a rapidly evolving industry landscape,” said Robert Lowenthal, President & Head of U.S. Investment Banking for Oppenheimer.

Minnihan has over 25 years of experience within the financial technology industry and has advised on a wide variety of M&A, private equity and capital-raising transactions for clients across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Latin America. He has advised on some of the most prominent transactions in FinTech throughout his career, including Rev Worldwide’s $1 billion acquisition of NetSpend; Majesco’s $729 million sale to Thoma Bravo; TSYS’ $2.35 billion acquisition of Transfirst and Concord EFS’ $7 billion sale to First Data.
