We are highly sensitive to our clients' business considerations and create, or work with clients' counsel to create products that are true to the value proposition for investors, and at the same time are legally sound, consistent with current regulatory requirements, competitive, acceptable to the due diligence community, and financial advisor centric. Having a broad base of experience with different product structures, with the regulators, and with the retail capital markets, we are many times able to present creative solutions that benefit our clients and their investors. We also do our own due diligence on our clients and that helps prepare them for rigorous due diligence they will face in the marketplace. Bringing a product to market that misses the mark is expensive and time-consuming. Our knowledge of and experience in the retail capital markets enhances the probability of success.
