Financial Sponsors

FDP has worked with private equity, credit, family offices, hedge funds, alternative lenders, and independent sponsors to drive investor returns. We preserve and create shareholder value in portfolio companies by working with financial sponsors and management to create and execute plans to drive market beating returns.

The seasoned advisors at FDP have experience as private investors themselves and understand that closing a transaction is the first step in the process of creating investment returns. Highly leveraged transactions are often built on multi-year financial forecasts that often change due to fluctuations in the market, technology, or management.  FDP has experience driving EBTIDA to meet the high principal and interest payment demands of leveraged lending, and works with banks, mezzanine lenders, and financial sponsors to deliver desirable outcomes for all parties.
