Jim Afinowich - Arizona Business Brokers Association

Jim Afinowich

IBG/Fox & Fin is a financial advisory company that facilitates the mergers and acquisitions of privately held, middle-market companies – with a sharp focus on businesses in the western U.S. that have annual sales between $5 million and $150 million.
While our ultimate objective is business sales, IBG/Fox & Fin is truly a financial and M&A advisory company.

Ideally, we create relationships with business owners two or more years before their company is ready to sell, to assist in building business value, maximize our knowledge of the business, and more readily identify the best-fit buyers for your company.

IBG/Fox & Fin’s mission as M&A advisors and business brokers has remained the same since we began in 1993: to give you the highest level of expertise and service and to support your business growth and liquidity objectives.

Our experience, network and proven process help you receive maximum value in the sale of your company.

In carrying out our mission, we remain faithful to three all-encompassing values: professionalism, passion and performance.

Services Offered

IBG/Fox & Fin’s ability to achieve your goals is the true measure of our value. The focus that is required in achieving your goals forces us to be very discerning in accepting engagements to sell or buy a business.

To ensure that our attention is not divided, and our energy is not diluted, we typically accept less than half of the engagements offered. In other words, we do not compromise our standards or your objectives by overextending our capacity or accepting engagements we can’t successfully complete.

By accepting fewer clients, we can focus more properly on you, provide a higher level of service, and more thoroughly craft a deal that best fits your objectives.


IBG/Fox & Fin is a proud founding member of IBG Business, a nationally respected, award-winning leader in business sales and acquisitions of privately held middle-market companies in every major industry, with more than 1,100 successful closings.
