Banks and Thrifts

Since our founding in 1988, serving banks and thrifts has been at our core. We fundamentally understand the issues most important to these institutions and have a track record of success based on earning clients’ trust and helping them grow their businesses.

We work closely with management teams to understand their goals and challenges, and we craft tailored solutions to help them reach their objectives. We build long-term relationships and have grown alongside many of our clients to expand our services, which include capital raising through issuing equity, debt or preferred securities, whole bank and branch transactions, FDIC assisted transactions, recapitalization transactions, fairness opinions and lines of business acquisitions and divestitures.
