The universe for attractive outside capital supporting the investment industry is limited. Banks are generally not a great option because of aggressive collateral requirements. While commercial finance companies and mezzanine funds compete more effectively on occasion, they are unlikely to have the industry knowledge to underwrite your firm effectively. Private equity probably represents the most accessible source of outside capital for your firm; however, the underwriting methodology depends on a strategy that depends on the sale or recapitalization of your firm within three to five years. Frequently, these private equity-driven transactions are difficult to effectuate because of client concerns regarding changes in control.
