Many financial advisors that work with high-net-worth clients and prospects have something in common with their business clients–they own their own business and share their clients’ entrepreneurial spirit. CreoValo is an institutional solution that can help financial advisors outcompete wirehouses and large banks for the high-net-worth business owner.
We can assist you in growing your book of high-net-worth business owners. CreoValo can equip you with tools to meet the needs of a business owner, preparing you to control this aspect of your client relationship. Instead of having an investment bank with a wealth management arm approach your client, we work with investment banks that have a vested interest in you managing or continuing to manage the business owner's assets.
They provided my client with both a local and a national investment banking choice. They coordinated a robust interview process, and my clients were impressed by the caliber of bankers who were introduced. My client ended up hiring the national investment bank that exceeded my client's expectations in terms of the total transaction value.
CreoValo partners with advisors to provide a premium service to their business owner clients and prospects. Unlike large wirehouses, our independence allows us to put your client’s interests and your interests first.
We can help train advisors on how to uncover liquidity opportunities, how to have strategic conversations, and how to deliver corporate finance services without being an investment banker.
We routinely help attorneys, accountants as well as their clients, and their potential prospects identify, and select appropriate investment banks to consider hiring. The CreoValo team works closely and alongside the advisor to become an extension of their team supporting the client.
Attorneys and accountants are positioned to be trusted partners by helping business owners uncover strategic alternatives, and when appropriate, the ideal investment banker to assist them. Such bankers bring proprietary industry knowledge and key experience to achieve better results for the business owner.
In our first call with the owner, we focus on understanding the business, how it is capitalized, and the stakeholder's objectives.
The CreoValo team can help companies prepare for banker introductions by confirming the desired transaction, enhancing business attractiveness, and clarifying expectations bankers will have.
At no cost to the client, CreoValo can help identify, select and introduce the appropriate investment banks and vetted investment bankers out of our proprietary network drawn from a database of over 6,000 firms¹.
Clients will often get to hear from selected investment banks on various topics such as industry dynamics, strategic alternatives (M&A, capital raising, IPO, etc.), timing considerations, valuation, and potential acquirers.
The decision to engage an investment banker is solely the client’s decision. Once engaged and a transaction successfully closes, CreoValo will receive a success-based referral fee from the investment bank. We do not get paid unless a transaction successfully closes.
Mindful that all transactions are inherently confidential, CreoValo will seek to keep the advisor informed as appropriate.
