Today’s capital-raising environment may be one of the most rigorous and difficult times in recent history. The path is arduous and riddled with regulations and challenges that can make raising capital a very difficult task.
Since the economic recession began in 2008 bank failures have dramatically increased. According to the FDIC, just 44 banks failed between the years of 1997 to 2007. Yet, from 2008 to 2014, more than 500 banks failed (source: FDIC).
Patrick Capital Markets understands that bank managers are faced with new regulatory challenges on a daily basis, and this leaves little time for these managers to raise capital; that is where PCM can help.
