Bronson Financial's Experienced Team to Provide Investment Banking Services To Emerging Growth and Middle-Market Companies
IRVINE, Calif., June 22, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- BKF Capital Group, Inc. (OTC: BKFG), is pleased to announce that Bronson Financial LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary, has been approved as a member of FINRA. This clears the way for the Company to begin operations as an investment banking firm. Bronson Financial will provide investment banking services to emerging growth and middle-market companies, including M&A advisory services, buy and sell-side representation, capital raising transactions (including PIPEs), fairness opinions, and valuations.
Bronson Financial's distinctive approach to investment banking capitalizes on its core team's extensive experience in finance and operations, manufacturing, and distribution. The Company's founder, Steven N. Bronson, a successful entrepreneur and turnaround specialist, leverages his nearly 40 years of business experience to create value for all stakeholders. He has successfully returned three publicly traded technology companies to profitability and implemented long-term strategic plans throughout his career. The Company's CFO, Ryan Hoffman, brings more than 20 years of accounting experience as a CPA, having worked at two top global accounting firms. He recently spent 16 years at RSM, where he was an audit partner for the last five years. Before working at RSM, Mr. Hoffman spent four years with the Big Four accounting firm Ernst & Young. Having a team with diverse backgrounds like these gives the firm a unique perspective to meet the needs of its clients, not limited to their financial goals.
"We pride ourselves on treating our clients as collaborative partners rather than just numbers—an approach that is all too common within the large financial institutions," said Steven N. Bronson, founder, and CEO of Bronson Financial. "We can provide this exceptional level of service by employing a stringent selection process when choosing the entrepreneurs and businesses we partner with."
Bronson Financial brings a unique advantage compared to its peers, by the willingness to explore investing its own capital through its affiliated entity, BKF Asset Holdings.
