Private Placements

Capital is the lifeblood of growing companies, critical for funding investment, M&A or working capital needs. We raise capital for clients across the entire spectrum of private equity and debt funding sources, including early through later stage venture capital, mezzanine and senior lenders, private equity firms, and strategic investors.

In Brief

Chessiecap Securities, our broker/dealer subsidiary, brings to a transaction a national investor network as well as an understanding of investors’ criteria, preferences and structures–all with the ultimate goal of attracting the capital that is right for our clients. Our disciplined, research-driven transaction methodology manages and streamlines the entire financing process. Our expertise includes working with select closely-held and family-held businesses that are dealing with transitions and generational issues by assisting owners in recapitalizations, succession financing, and ESOP financing. We prepare management for the rigors of investor scrutiny and generate investor interest while allowing management to continue to focus on running the business. Our structure allows us to provide insightful guidance to our clients on smaller capital rounds that typically fall under the ability of larger Wall Street firms to effectively serve.
