Our Team

Who We Are

“Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results.”

Andrew Carnegie, Scottish-American industrialist and philanthropist

The Patrick Capital Markets’ Story

Executing the possibilities.

Much of we do at Patrick Capital Markets is different than what you’ll find at a typical broker-dealer. Our people are different. We’re a strong team with impressive and diverse backgrounds who tackles capital projects from all angles. Our firm is “right-sized.” We are large enough to optimally service clients but small enough to adjust on the fly. Unlike many other broker-dealers, we are willing to consider deals that range in size and scope, and we are adept at meeting tight timeframes. 

Our projects are born from our passion to ensure that the signature of Patrick Capital Markets is excellence. That means our diligence is thorough, our investor experience is designed thoughtfully and we drive to closing with efficiency.

Patrick Capital Markets’ skilled team is at-the-ready, prepared to navigate the deal process and bring alternative investment products to market. Because we are highly specialized with decades of experience, we see a transaction three-dimensionally – tackling multiple steps in the process at once. For our sponsor-clients, that means the ability to anticipate challenges before they occur. For our reps, it ensures flexibility and speed.

In the end, the team at Patrick Capital Markets makes a range of deals a reality by living up to its tagline every day – Executing the possibilities.
