Capital Markets Solutions

Outsourced expertise for sponsors seeking to capitalize on opportunities

Navigating capital markets can be challenging and time consuming, especially for small- to middle-market funds, independent sponsors, and family offices. Finding a financial partner that can provide the right operating flexibility for current and future needs is critical and takes experience.

Our capital markets platform offers both transactional and full-service solutions for our clients seeking to outsource some or all of their capital markets needs. We bring the expertise of a lender and the experience of private equity to create tailored solutions that make opportunities move faster and more efficiently.

Private equity clients turn to us with their most complex financing issues including integrations, turnarounds, and carveouts. With all of our engagements, the outcome for our clients is increased bandwidth to focus on new transactions and operational performance.

Partnered Solutions

Our partnered solutions extend our clients’ in-house resources with an outsourced capital markets arm. By outsourcing the management of debt relationships portfolio-wide, our clients keep their deal teams focused on pursuing opportunities—and their operations teams focused on creating value.

We represent the sponsor with consistency and sophistication across current portfolio holdings as well as potential acquisitions:

  • general advisory and restructuring opportunities
  • amendments, waivers, and defaults
  • bank reporting and oversight in partnership with portfolio company management teams, including reconciliations with lenders to ensure accuracy and liquidity optimization
