MERCHANT BANKING OVERVIEW
Milestone Advisors’ core investment banking business focuses on small to middle market financial services companies which are at varying stages of the growth cycle. As a result, Milestone’s deal flow allows us to see a multitude of merchant banking opportunities whereby we look to invest in companies using our own balance sheet and capital. This investment can come in many forms, including, early stage financing for de novo banks and start up finance companies and insurance companies, growth capital for companies looking to accelerate asset growth and earnings enhancement, or acquisition financing for companies seeking to complement organic growth with either “fill in” or “bolt on” acquisitions. As financial services experts, Milestone’s professionals possess the skills to evaluate various investment opportunities. Our investment banking team has successfully invested capital in banks, specialty finance companies, and insurance companies, oftentimes alongside the investors that we identify as part of a corporate finance assignment.
