BKD Corporate Finance is celebrating its 25-year milestone. The anniversary marks a notable change. Effective June 1, BKD Corporate Finance will become BKD Capital Advisors, LLC.
As BKD’s investment banking arm, BKD Capital Advisors (BKDCA) provides investment banking services to clients both internally and externally. It has experienced outstanding growth in the past five years—including hiring senior middle-market bankers, expanding geographically from three to six offices and broadening its international reach.
BKDCA’s capability to leverage the firm’s vast resources is an aspect that uniquely distinguishes it from traditional middle-market investment banking practices. After reviewing the breadth of services BKDCA currently provides, leadership decided it was crucial to include “Advisors” in the new name to better communicate the broad range of investment banking advisory services.
“Advisory is the most important aspect of the services we provide to our clients who, in a liquidity event, are potentially going through the most important transaction of their career,” says BKDCA President Tony Giordano. “Although BKDCA is a 20-person shop and growing, being able to provide our clients with access to BKD’s resources allows us to provide unique and exceptional service levels comparable to larger investment banking organizations.”
