Venture and Expansion Capital Private Placements

Our competitive edge lies in raising value-added money. We tap investors whose influential relationships and support will contribute to propel successful entrepreneurs to the next level. To be able to raise quality financing from top-tier international private equity investors or family offices, we are obliged to immerse ourselves in our clients' products and services. Only then can we communicate our clients' unique advantages to the most appropriate investors.

Private Investments in Public Equity (PIPEs)

Bryan, Garnier & Co has developed a strong knowledge in the private placement of securities for publicly-listed companies. PIPEs require an expertise of both private and public capital markets, their regulatory regimes, as well as the knowledge of investors’ capacity to conduct such investments

Equity-Linked and Structured Finance

Highly attractive in adverse market conditions, equity-linked instruments allow companies to raise development capital and acquisition funding with a minimum dilution impact. Equity-linked finance is mostly not traded and can be used at all stages of development (early stage, development and acquisitions), for public as well as for private companies.
