About Us

Helping Entrepreneurs

Since 2011

108 Securities is a boutique investment bank in the legacy creation and fulfillment business. We work with entrepreneurs, owners and shareholders of small to mid-size private and public companies to fully realize their ambition and monetize their vision. Legacy creation requires a sensitive, innovative application of financial instruments combined with traditionally-fashioned street smarts to transform earlier stage growth and medium sized businesses into legacy entities.

Find out what is right for you and your legacy and begin monetizing your vision now.

108 Securities is an independent investment bank focused on providing strategic and financial advice on mergers, acquisitions, sales, divestitures and private capital solutions. 108’s clients include middle market and emerging growth companies, private equity sponsors and family-owned and entrepreneur-led businesses. 108 through our networks, provides broad industry execution expertise to carry out our mandates.

108 is an important number across the world in culture, religion, mathematics and science. 108 is also the number of stitches in a major league baseball. A capable pitcher utilizes the stitches to help deliver the ball across the plate in more than one, innovative way. Like a pitcher, we customize our strategies to ensure we achieve the desired outcome of our clients.
