YOUR BRAND IMAGE
OUR COMPETITIVE EDGE
Successfully taking a business through an M&A sales process not only requires the appropriate financial and valuation analyses, but also persuasive marketing and branding of your company within the marketplace. Many investors look at hundreds, if not thousands, of opportunities a year -- how do you make your company stand out from the crowd? We have marketing professionals that carefully construct unique marketing materials for each client using digital graphics, video, and out-side-the-box solutions. We use these materials, in combination with our extensive investor network, to ensure investors not only take the time to review and understand your business, but inspire them to see additional value and pursue the opportunity further.
SPECIAL FOCUS ON
The middle market distressed advisory and investment banking space is dominated by “single shingle” advisors that lack professional bench strength. Larger, national firms may be willing to get involved in this space when their core market slows, but they bring with them their large-market structures and higher fees and expenses, neither of which are typically beneficial to the middle market client.
Riverbend's Restructuring Team has been built to address these shortcomings, by providing experienced advisors that:
Provide the majority of the advisory services that have traditionally been delivered by three independent advisors in larger market assignments
Under a single engagement
With a reasonable and competitive, middle-market fee structure
Our Restructuring team provides corporate finance and investment banking advisory services to under-performing and highly levered middle market businesses. The firm’s professionals have significant experience selling, investing in, raising capital for, and/or consulting with numerous companies, representing billions of dollars in transaction values, in every major industry category within the middle market. Due to its broad experience with highly leveraged and distressed companies, the firm is able to provide investment banking, financial and restructuring advisory services, under a single engagement letter, resulting in significant cost savings to its clients.
FAMILY OFFICE ADVISORY
Riverbend's Family Office Advisory team is structured to be able to offer Family Offices a unique suite of comprehensive services for building, managing and deploying capital. Our team specializes in equity & debt capital raises for high-caliber, alternative investment managers, and for small to mid-size privately owned businesses.
Through the extensive prior work experiences in Family Office Wealth Management, Riverbend's advisory principal's have built and maintain an extensive network of large family offices and institutional investors throughout the United States.
We understand that Family Office needs differ from those of other investors. We are also aware of the evolution of Family Offices and their desire to develop their own in-house direct investment teams. Riverbend's professionals and service offerings have been created to help at every step of this transformation/process.
