Solebury Capital is headquartered next to the Delaware River in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This location allows us to view the global capital markets at an arm’s length, yet with unique clarity and perspective gleaned from decades spent at some of the most important investment banking firms on Wall Street. We believe that the best equity capital markets advice is impartial and based on a deep understanding of our client’s objectives, a realistic set of goals, a truthful and timely assessment of deal dynamics and market conditions and, finally, mature judgment acquired over market cycles. Solebury Capital offers that advice.
Solebury provides clients with completely unbiased and independent advice throughout all stages of the capital raising process. Our firm does not share the structural conflicts inherent within large investment banks who serve competing constituencies. Our goal is to provide thoughtful and straightforward advice to our clients, unencumbered by competing interests.
With 165 years of capital markets experience at the world’s premier investment banks, and thousands of deals to our credit, our Partners have successfully guided transactions in all market environments. Our current experience and position on the Issuer’s side of the table allows us to actively and objectively evaluate alternatives, while freeing us to think creatively about viable solutions tailored to out client’s needs - not simply market convention.
Our Managing Directors are “Deal Guys” – product specialists who each spent their careers on the trading floor at the nexus of execution - directly accountable for managing every aspect of the underwriting process. We have a unique understanding of the nuances of the equity underwriting business, and a track record of navigating its characteristic challenges. Unlike most relationship bankers, our Partners bore the responsibility to get transactions to the finish line.
Each of our Partners has many years of experience supervising market leading underwriting groups in the global equity capital markets. Not only were we responsible for managing the most challenging and high-profile transactions, but we also were responsible for establishing, negotiating and maintaining firm-wide underwriting standards and practices. Solebury clients quickly recognize the benefits of a top-heavy model that commits senior capital markets professionals over the life of a project.
Years of market leadership have resulted in a broad and deep set of relationships across the global capital markets. Solebury’s active advisory business maintains and extends those relationships within the underwriting community. Solebury’s trading floor relationships are an important compliment to an issuer’s banking relationships during the underwriting window.
Our structure allows our senior team to focus the required energy, attention and resources on each client and project. Unlike our clients who must spend the bulk of their time managing their business or a portfolio of assets and LP investor relationships, we are singularly dedicated to coordinating the underwriting process and can commit the necessary time to optimize results. Clients gain instant scale, and thereby time to focus their energy on higher margin “mission critical” activities where they can have more impact. Repeat clients find confidence in knowing that experienced eyes and hands are proactively guiding their important financings.
Solebury’s boutique model and partnership structure promotes team continuity. In an era of banker rotation, clients can have confidence that their Solebury deal team will remain constant throughout the life of the project and long thereafter.
