FOCUS Investment Banking LLC

Rick Thompson, Chief Financial Officer at FOCUS Investment Banking states, “Over the past few decades, FOCUS has adopted a methodology for identifying unique businesses, structuring a deal that ensures the business will prosper, running a distinct investment banking process, and closing a strategic transaction. We selected DealCloud to technology-enable this process and to support our bankers throughout the United States. We found the DealCloud platform to be highly configurable to conform to our proven methodology.”The DealCloud implementation was accomplished over an 8-week timeframe. Rick Kushel, CEO at DealCloud states, “FOCUS had a very distinct process that has made them successful. We ensured that their process could be modeled within DealCloud so that the technology facilitated the transaction process rather than the technology dictating the way the bankers had to execute. The end result was a highly configurable DealCloud system that will support the FOCUS team for the foreseeable future.”

FOCUS Investment Banking and DealCloud continue to partner to enhance the FOCUS DealCloud platform. The team recently migrated FOCUS’ FINRA compliance process and recordkeeping system to the DealCloud platform so that all deal related execution and compliance activity is housed in one repository.
