DSO is a financial services firm committed to securing financing to match our clients’ needs.
We approach our work in a process-driven fashion combining past transactional experience with practical solutions, away from banking stereotypes.
DSO does not limit the scope of its engagements to particular sectors or parts of the capital structure. Instead, we tap varied pools of capital in order to devise a measured and fitting offering suited to challenges that cannot be met by off-the-shelf products.
Often our clients turn to us when their needs become unsuited to the restrictive product scope of traditional corporate lenders, and the scale requirements of many investment banks.
We operate in a straightforward manner and give careful consideration to all pertinent issues before discussing client transactions with investors. Ultimately, advance preparation of a well-structured marketing strategy is key to achieving a successful transaction.
When required, DSO works with a network of product, sector and geography specialists to provide a complete service to our clients.
