The CBI designation: Our badge of expertise, your shield of assurance.
What is a CBI?
Certified Business Intermediary, or CBI, is the designation awarded by the International Business Brokers Association (IBBA) to members who have satisfied the academic requirements and conform to the ethical standards of IBBA.
Why should you use a CBI?
Buying or selling a business is one of the most crucial financial transactions of your life. As a business owner, you probably have or will have a good portion of your assets in your business or professional practice.
When the time comes to buy or sell a business, you need the best representation possible. In what can be a confusing and sometimes difficult process, it pays to leave little to chance. With the help of a professional, you can navigate unknown territory with ease. A CBI can help you optimize your transaction by identifying better prospects, clarifying investment potential, and helping you select the lawyers, accountants and other professionals who will provide the necessary counsel to assure a successful transition of ownership.
A CBI is an experienced, proven professional whose claim of competence is supported and documented. A CBI has the outstanding skills necessary to handle the marketing, negotiations and complex details involved in the purchase or sale of your business.
How can a CBI help?
Every CBI has undergone a specialized course of detailed training, aimed at making the process of buying or selling a business as smooth and worry-free as possible.

Every CBI is a professional equipped with special expertise as a result of advanced study in listing, selling, investment, taxes, valuation and more.
