East Coast selectively invests in minority-owned asset managers with demonstrated ability to generate strong risk-adjusted returns. We works closely with these asset managers to identify investment strategies and make our expertise available on an ongoing basis.
Even the staidest business must evolve or risk being left behind. At the same time, technology companies must find a way to work with existing infrastructures or risk being on the outside looking in. East Coast Capital Holdings is a nexus between these worlds and invest in FinTech companies (from Start-up to pre-IPO) with exceptional talent that share our vision of changing financial services from within.
East Coast Capital Holdings provides growing minority-owned small businesses with stable cash-flow access to asset based financing. By providing an interim layer of capital, East Coast helps businesses achieve their growth objectives. Preferred industries: food services, transportation, business services, manufacturing. Preferred loan sizes: $500,000 to $5 million.
Deal Flow and Opportunities
With more than 25 years of experience lending its own capital, and in conjunction with other lenders, East Coast has developed substantial deal-flow for new loans and investments.
Investment In Depository Institutions
East Coast Capital Holdings makes equity investments in minority-owned banks as well as other depository institutions (MDIs). We believe that in most asset classes values revert to a mean. Currently MDIs are trading at historically low valuations, and as a result there are attractive returns for opportunistic investors. Our approach to investing in banks is three-fold. First, we invest at attractive valuations. Second, when appropriate, we are active investors with board participation. Third, we buy distressed assets from our portfolio institutions. Through our comprehensive approach, East Coast not only restores MDIs to financial health, but can earn above average returns for equity investors.
