About Us

VERSARi Private Capital Advisory has one of the most knowledgeable and experienced advisory teams in the industry focusing exclusively on private placements. A private placement is often a customized security with long-term ramifications. Companies embarking on a private placement require talent and expertise to ensure that they are positioned properly and that the deal outcome fits within the framework of their business plan. The senior leadership of VERSARi has decades of cumulative private placement experience and has led the private placement groups at Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette Securities Corp., Credit Suisse Securities, LLC, and Raymond James & Associates.

Our experience includes the successful closing of over $20 billion of transactions for over 250 clients in a broad spectrum of sectors, including healthcare, technology, business services, media, financial services and energy. We are deal specialists providing our clients with creative structuring capabilities and a global distribution network.

VERSARi differentiates itself from almost all other firms due to its specialized private placement knowledge. Because a buyer in a private placement is typically a minority equity investor or a debt provider, it is a very different approach than an M&A transaction where company control is given up. Consequently, the skills of generalist bankers who have little or no private placement experience may not be adequate.

VERSARi private placement veterans provide a tested, “hands-on” approach having successfully managed hundreds of complex transactions. We assist our clients from the deal preparation and positioning stage to marketing, documentation through to closing. Our guidance adds valuable insights throughout the process.

We chose the name VERSARi  because one of the meanings of this Latin word is “focus” and that is the hallmark of our strategy.
