IRVINE, Calif. and CHICAGO, March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Hunter Wise Financial Group, LLC is pleased to announce it has been engaged to serve as the investment banking firm responsible for identifying corporate investment candidates for the investment arm of a large, publically traded, U.S. holding company.
In this capacity, Hunter Wise Financial Group is actively searching for both majority (acquisition) and minority investment opportunities in family owned businesses, with particular interest in those that span multiple generations. Other sectors will be considered on a case by case basis. Considerations include a strong management team and low risk of technology obsolescence. Owners and principals interested in additional information are invited to contact Ken Hoganson or Jackie Fimrite of Hunter Wise.
"We have a strong working relationship with our client, and with its unique 'hands off approach to management' style and its long term investing strategy, we believe them to be a good fit for companies uncomfortable with typical private equity financing strategies, or a long drawn out sales process," said Chicago based Hunter Wise Managing Director Ken Hoganson.
"This investor is particularly well suited to companies needing liquidity, growth resources or those undergoing generational transition such as family owned companies. Given the number of industry specialized Managing Directors within Hunter Wise, we're extremely confident Hunter Wise will identify appropriate investment opportunities for our client," said Chicago based Hunter Wise Managing Director James Carroll.
