Capital Alliance honored as best regional mid-market M&A firm

DALLAS, April 27, 2018 – Capital Alliance Corp. has been named the top regional mid-market investment banking provider for the Southwest United States by Global Finance Magazine.

Global Finance published its 19th annual World’s Best Investment Banks in an exclusive survey appearing in its April 2018 issue.

“The investment banks that win our annual awards show exceptional depth of market understanding and service excellence,” said Joseph D. Giarraputo, publisher and editorial director of Global Finance.

Global Finance editors, with input from industry experts, used a series of criteria — including market share, number and size of deals, service and advice, structuring capabilities, distribution network, efforts to address market conditions, innovation, pricing, after-market performance of underwritings and market reputation — to score and select winners, based on a proprietary algorithm. Deals announced or completed in 2017 were considered.

“We are honored to have been selected,” said Bryan Livingston, managing partner and CEO at Dallas-based Capital Alliance Corp., a middle-market investment bank that has completed more than 230 transactions since its founding in 1976. “We saw middle-market deal flow improve in 2017, and 2018 looks very promising with multiple cross-border deals in the mix.”
