The initial “kick off moment” for many of the region’s greatest business success stories can be traced back to the meetings that entrepreneurs had with forward-thinking, insightful and creative investment bankers.
These are the experts that really get our great ideas and concepts on the right track. The best of them will wear multiple hats, providing incredibly valuable guidance and advice while helping their clients raise money in the capital markets.
The right investment banker does more than provide an infusion of cash for your business. He or she – and the institution they represent – can genuinely prepare your organization (with the right resources, capital and guidance) for the next level of growth and beyond.
Welcome to the 2021 installment of our annual roundup of some of the best and most successful investment bankers in the region. In these pages, you’ll find profiles describing many of the genuine leading lights in a profession that has become more important than ever – and a snapshot of what makes them great.
Congratulations to the trailblazing professionals who made this list and thank you for your contributions to the local business community’s success.
Methodology: The professionals featured in these pages did not pay to be included. Their profiles were drawn from nomination materials submitted to the Los Angeles Business Journal.
