The Life of a Carofin Deal

Each of our in-house crafted securities goes through a purpose-built cycle of
analysis, diligence, development, and support.

Step
1

Apply “First Principles” to Clearly
Understand the Investment Opportunity

  • Does a practical and material business opportunity exist?
  • What are the known challenges in this market?
  • Does the company offer a viable solution to the challenge?
  • Can a security be developed balancing risks and returns for all parties?
Step

Conduct Detailed Due-Diligence

The issuer, its management, and any affiliates all undergo a thorough screening. Our staff associates utilize mature internal processes and reliable external data to complete this effort.

Step
3

Develop and Deliver the Security

An iterative process where the needs of the issuer and the goals of the investor are balanced. Our goal: quality securities backing worthy companies in viable industries.

Step
4

Efficiently Market the Offering

Our bankers, associates and affiliates work as a team to offer the right securities to engaged investors. We utilize the latest technologies to discreetly inform investors, present relevant materials, and facilitate the financial transaction.
