INSTITUTIONAL SERVICES

CLiR assists asset managers and companies looking to raise capital from retail investors through the Independent Broker Dealer and RIA markets by providing a suite of design, implementation, and distribution services.  Our specialty is smaller offerings ($25-100MM) combined with the utilization of innovative and creative deal structures that meet the demands of the current market.  Our goal is to create a timely sales cycle, accompanied by greater investment simplicity, investor understanding, market reach, and alignment of interest. The CLiR team has over 100 years of combined experience raising capital, offering deep relationships at all levels that drive results.

Our Focus:

  1. Preferred stock offerings of public companies

  2. Reg. A+ bond and preferred offerings for private companies

  3. Asset or portfolio recapitalization through 1031/DSTs

  4. Tax advantaged strategies

  5. Reg. D offerings (Design and ancillary services only - limited distribution)

Our Value:

Raising capital in the independent broker dealer and RIA markets is notoriously complicated, laborious, and expensive.  Building a captive distribution team requires significant initial and ongoing investment and offers limited economies of scale.  The CLiR platform allows a company or asset manager the exposure required to raise capital by only paying for what they need and by providing access to the retail investor markets at a fraction of the cost.  By focusing only on structures or asset classes where demand exists, we strive to lower the cost of capital even further by shortening the sales cycle.

In conjunction with our Managing Broker Dealer, International Assets Advisory, LLC, CLiR can serve as a full-service turnkey operation, or create a customized suite of consulting services
