Avalon Advisors

Deal Type: Growth Financing
Exit: Partial sale to financial buyer

​In 2001, we were approached by local high net-worth account managers from a large international brokerage house and asked if we would assist and support their formation of a local boutique investment advisory firm. We helped structure a debt and equity offering –raising capital from selected individuals who could add value and reputation to the launch. A requirement was that only approved individuals could invest rather than private equity funds. Helping to recruit investment talent and clients, we aided the steady growth of Avalon through several investment cycles. Over a period of years, Avalon sold significant equity interests to two private equity firms: Platform Partners and the Carlyle Group.
