Transformative events don’t happen every day for a business, but those organizations which are well-positioned are able to successfully capitalize on those unique opportunities and maximize their outcomes.


We have been involved in billions of dollars in financing transactions serving as investors, operators, board members and advisors. As a result, Cascade has a global set of investor relationships that enable us to bring creative capital solutions to help solve complex strategic challenges. In our advisory role, we typically work with closely-held companies, independent sponsors and private equity firms to secure equity and debt capital.

By focusing on key objectives, we target the right kind of capital, whether for organic expansion, acquisitions, shareholder liquidity or general recapitalizations. While pricing and equity terms are always important considerations, many of our clients are also seeking enhanced financial flexibility, value-added expertise, and strategic vision and culture alignment from an investor/partner.

We advise on many types of financing transactions, from the mainstream to the complex and time-sensitive, all while driving a competitive dynamic and optimizing your options and resources.

  • Asset-based debt
  • Senior cash flow debt
