Royall Capital Holdings, LLC Launches as New Minority-Owned Investment Bank

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - November 15, 2013) - Royall Capital Holdings, LLC (Royall Capital) is pleased to announce its launch as a minority-owned Private Placement and Corporate Advisory boutique investment bank. Royall Capital provides long-term custom capital solutions for emerging businesses. Royall Capital also works with Fortune 500 companies to help them increase the diversity of their supply chain by providing access to a vast network of "Best in Class" emerging businesses. Royall Capital was founded by Frederick E. Royall III, who will also serve as Chief Executive Officer for the New York City-based company.

Most recently, Mr. Royall was the head of Equity Capital Markets at a boutique investment bank based in New York. He has over 15 years of capital markets experience in which he has raised both debt and equity capital for corporate clients. He has executed over 100 transactions for clients including GE, Walt Disney, Con Edison, Pacific Gas, Sempra Energy, California Water, and LPL Financial. Prior to his most recent role, Mr. Royall worked in the Equity Capital Markets group at Credit-Suisse. Mr. Royall began his career at Merrill Lynch & Co. and earned an MBA from Columbia Business School.

"Having worked closely with emerging businesses for the majority of my career, I have seen firsthand the limitations that not having access to capital can have on the growth and scale of businesses. It is often the primary hurdle that they face while working with Fortune 500 companies. Royall Capital was created to provide access to capital for emerging businesses, which will enable them to fully realize their growth potential," said Mr. Royall. 

Royall Capital's team has longstanding relationships with major providers of institutional capital to emerging businesses including family offices, insurance companies, pension funds, and private equity funds. Royall Capital leverages its relationships to create unique and tailored capital solutions for its clients to drive growth, expansion, and profitability. By collaborating with Fortune 500 companies, Royall Capital is able to develop new client relationships and revenue streams for its emerging business clients. 

Royall Capital also advises Fortune 500 companies on strategies to help achieve their supplier diversity objectives. Fortune 500 companies are finding it increasingly challenging to meet their diversity goals, with less than 50% reaching their targets. Royall Capital identifies supply areas that are underserved by diverse businesses, and provides "Best in Class" emerging businesses that can help Fortune 500 companies meet their supplier goals.

Microsoft Corporation has selected Royall Capital to participate in a small business mentorship program. "Proper access to capital is critical in today's marketplace for our suppliers," said Fernando Hernandes, Supplier Diversity Director at Microsoft. "We are excited to work with Royall Capital and believe it can play a valuable role in addressing the need to properly capitalize suppliers so that they can meet the scale needs required by Fortune 500 corporations."

"Royall Capital is very excited about the opportunity to serve our clients," Mr. Royall said. "Our initial reception from emerging businesses and Fortune 500 companies has been even better than anticipated and has confirmed our view that access to capital among emerging businesses has become a greater challenge than ever. We are well positioned to address this core need, and we look forward to working with our clients to achieve their financial and strategic objectives."
