Capital Markets & Privates Trading

Capital Markets & Privates

We have built a wide network of equity capital market participants and provide a variety of services to our ECM clients including research commentary, after-market advisory services, and in-depth market intelligence.  We distribute regular ECM updates, statistics, and noteworthy trend analysis on a variety of private and public companies.  Furthermore, we work with our clients to structure offerings and derive efficient execution.  We are an end-to-end solution for our client’s capital market needs.

We also work closely with corporate executives to target specific institutional investors for initial public offerings and secondary offerings that have shown interest in their companies through our corporate access program. We leverage our institutional distribution network to provide the most favorable terms to the issuer, minimize discounts, and maximize proceeds per share. Due to our long standing corporate and institutional relationships, investment banks often offer us the opportunity to act as a selling group member to not only reduce their risk but also increase quality distribution.

FBN also provides effective and transparent access and liquidity in private markets for our asset manager clients as well as private companies and shareholders.  We make the pre-IPO secondary space more efficient and transparent and play matchmaker between buyers and sellers.  We look to transact in two main areas: late-stage companies which is typically Series E or later, $1+ billion valuation and mid-stage companies which is typically Series B through Series D, $200 million – $1 billion valuation.  As our network of investors continues to grow, we place a tremendous importance on the protection of customer identities.  We are a great solution to trading private secondary transactions.
