Palomino Capital is a leading middle market investment bank with deep experience in mergers and acquisitions for privately held businesses
Palomino Capital is a premier mergers & acquisitions (M&A) investment banking firm. We specialize in creating value through acquisitions and partial or full sale of ownership interest for the best possible combination of price, terms and strategic fit. Most likely, selling your business or bringing on new investors is not something you do every day. For us, it’s our singular focus. We understand how important it is to get the countless details just right.
We are also business owners and operators ourselves, with a unique mix of deal-making know-how and practical, real-world experiences. Our solutions are driven by a confidential, market-clearing process, and a passion for helping you achieve your goals.

We specialize in representing sellers of private companies. We never represent buyers, either in acquisition searches or financings, and are thus under no pressure to favor any particular buyer. Our independence keeps us clear of any potential conflicts of interest.
