Welcome to the first edition of BizTimes Milwaukee’s newest directory, Access To Capital. This directory is a resource in print and online for business owners and executives seeking capital to fund the continuing operations of their companies, to expand their companies or to acquire other companies.
Today’s economy presents one of the most challenging times to gain access to commercial lending, especially if a business needs to seek a new banking relationship. This guide will help businesses narrow their search for available capital options, sorted by industry, the amount of capital needed and geographic location.
The guide contains listings of some of the most significant players in the financial services industry in metropolitan Milwaukee, including banks, attorneys, investment bankers, accountants, credit unions, leasing companies and more.
The listings, both in print and online, allow users to gain access to general information such as phone numbers and addresses, key customer contacts, web sites and much more. The guide also includes deeper information about the resources, such as the range of preferred transaction sizes, the industries the company specializes in serving, geographical preferences, total assets under management, the number of locations and employees in Wisconsin, the number of closed transactions in the past 18 months and more.
Much of that data has been arranged into lists, including companies with the most total assets, banks with the most locations and commercial lenders, investment banks and attorneys with the most closed transactions in the last 18 months.
The companies in the directory also were asked to describe their business and what sets them apart from their competition.
In fact, BizTimes gathered so much information about these financial institutions that we could not print it all here. However, all of the information has been posted at www.biztimes.com/capital.
BizTimes Milwaukee solicited the information about the companies listed in this directory over the past few months. Some companies did not respond to the call for entries. Companies wishing to be added to the online version of the directory can do so by visiting www.biztimes.com/capital.
