Financial Institutions Group

Specialty Finance

Our team represents the longest-standing franchise dedicated to the Specialty Finance sector, leveraging expertise built from executing M&A and capital raising advisory transactions for commercial and consumer finance clients across North America and Europe.

Our senior bankers work as a team to provide expert market intelligence, advisory and execution services while aligning with our specialty finance clients as partners and not competitors. We have deep relationships with public and private financing sources. This enables us to develop innovative debt and equity capital raising as well as buy side and sell side strategies.
