Independent, Objective Advice for Treasury & Capital Market Needs

We work with clients across the country to provide balance sheet advisory solutions. Our goal is to help clients achieve best-practice integration between balance sheet resources and their strategy, operations, finance, and capital funding needs.

We recognize that there are fundamental trade-offs between cost, flexibility, and risk, whether it be liquidity needs, the cost of debt instruments, expectations for investment returns, or optionality associated with real estate structures. Our team employs analytical resources to help you make sound decisions about capital formation, knitting together expertise about capital management; debt and derivative advisory; real estate capital markets; strategic resource allocation; treasury operations; and invested asset strategy.

Once these key decisions have been made, Kaufman Hall can also provide industry-leading execution.
