Deep industry ties in our focus sectors allow us to bring valuable industry content and actionable ideas to our financial sponsor clients. Our professionals are able to bring financial sponsors to appropriate companies seeking investment, and to access a deep pool of equity investors interested in middle market companies.

Once all parties are at the table, we move into execution. We leverage the resources of KeyBanc Capital Markets® (KBCM) to deliver M&A advisory services, debt and equity capital markets and leveraged finance solutions. Working with many financial sponsors time and time again, we bring our trusted partners opportunities on a regular basis, with the understanding that when we commit, we get the deal done.
