Lanier will privately place debt and equity securities through the direct solicitation of investors and provide investment banking services including M&A and corporate advisory services. We intend to provide alternative investment products to individual investors through direct investment into companies and by marketing funds which will provide investors diversity and high yield current rates of return.
Lanier Securities is in the process filing a New Membership Application for FINRA’s approval to operate as a licensed broker/dealer.
This is a new era of capital formation in the US. The JOBS act gives smaller companies a new opportunity to be properly capitalized. We will use our experience to find good companies that deserve to be well capitalized, and then work with these companies through their life cycle. It is our goal to become a firm known for raising capital for deserving private companies and assisting those companies to create value for shareholders.
This is an exciting time for capital formation in the USA and I believe we have an opportunity to make a meaningful difference for companies seeking capital and for the investors that wish to invest.
