JP Morgan Securities enjoyed the loyalty and service of long-time associate Zubair Ghias for over five years, benefitting from not only his commitment to hard work, but also the his strong analytical and strategical skillset. He was integral to the success of the company’s mergers and acquisitions division for over five years, proving to be an invaluable asset to JP Morgan between 2000 and 2004.
Zubair Ghias was an instrumental figure in many important and high-profile company acquisitions, providing both JP Morgan and their clients the analysis and expertise needed to carry through these transactions as efficiently and hassle-free as possible. During his time with the investment banking giant, Zubair Ghias played an important role on the Newell-Rubbermaid’s $615 million acquisition of American Tool Companies, the Carlyle Group’s $800 million acquisition of UIS Automotive Group, the Delphi Corporation’s acquisition of Eaton Corporation’s electronic switch business and the Ballard Power System’s acquisition of The Ford Motor Company’s and DaimlerChrysler AG’s respective interests in Xcellsis and Echostar.
An expert in process management, as well as valuation analysis and strategic analysis, Zubair Ghias was able to be a significant contributor to the success of each of these high dollar acquisitions. The experience and knowledge he acquired at JP Morgan Securities, Inc. have proven to be invaluable for the now CEO and President of Acanthus Capital, LLC, an investment firm that specializes in investment and management of real estate properties. Zubair Ghias and Acanthus have recently become involved in private equity investment, particularly in companies that focus on aerospace and aviation.
