Our Firm

As a leading full-service investment bank, we provide a full array of corporate finance, research, sales and trading services to corporate, institutional and high net worth clients.  Headquartered in Los Angeles, with offices in San Francisco, New York, Newport Beach and Del Mar, the firm is recognized for its distinguished Equity Research. Our investment banking services include merger and acquisitions advisory to public and private companies, initial and secondary public offerings, and institutional private placements. Engaged by both companies and investors, our Corporate Governance Advisory Services Group helps maximize value for shareholders. 

Founded in 1997, the firm began by successfully targeting small-capitalization California-based companies and has won a reputation for providing proprietary, unbiased and often contrarian equity research coverage of companies that are under-followed or misunderstood by Wall Street.

Providing Independent Research:

We conduct extensive due diligence before initiating coverage on a company. Fundamentals driven research focuses on an in-depth analysis of earnings, cash flow trends, balance sheet strength, industry outlook, and strength of management that involves extensive meetings with key management, competitors, channels partners and customers.

Delivering Superior Returns for our Clients:

We believe that the pricing of small cap equities is frequently inefficient, and therefore provides the greatest potential rewards to diligent security analysis. By identifying possibilities where few are looking, we achieve superior long-term returns for our clients.
