“Solving problems for clients is about financial prioritization. That means what can we prioritize today to help reduce risk, maximize value, and get on with it.”

— Russ Ferreri

As a business owner, you face important decisions every day about how to drive long-term value and the best way to maximize your largest asset—your business. UBS client research tells us some important truths:

  • On average, non-financial assets account for nearly two-thirds of business owners’ total assets.1
  • 65% of owners are not familiar with all of their exit options
  • 83% of owners have no written plan, while 48% have done no planning at all
  • Even for owners who decide to pursue a sale… 80% of those below $50mm in revenue and 65% of those above $50mm in annual revenue are unsuccessful.

You don’t have to navigate these challenges alone. Russ Ferreri is an experienced financial advisor and investment manager who helps business owners address the complexities of their situation. Acting with clients’ best interests in mind, he seeks to earn their trust with responsive and personalized service.

How we’ve helped other entrepreneurs realize their vision

Growing and exiting a business

And they’re off

  • Founders needed to “move up” to keep the business racing
  • Because of their high quality product and service, three co-founder clients kept hearing from large customers that they needed to “move up” and do even more. As the complexity and scope of their projects continued to increase, so did the amount of capital needed in order to run the business
  • They approached me looking for comprehensive guidance and exit planning that could (a) facilitate their own exit and (b) identify potential buyers

Down the stretch

  • Spent time learning about the business, its financial model, value drivers, and opportunity set
  • Conducted due diligence on prospective investment banks before engaging a potential partner who could maximize value
  • We were intimately involved throughout the entire process, coordinating all advisors (bankers, attorneys, CPAs) and engaging the owners in financial, estate, and philanthropic planning

Clients combine family caregiving role with newfound flexibility

Shifting gears

  • Husband had retired from successful career and wanted to spend more time with his wife and three adult children, including a special needs son for whom they were legal guardian
  • They found an ideal vacation property that would suit them and still accommodate the daily acuity needs of their son

Turning the key

  • The clients did not want to turn over existing real estate or assets to fund purchase
  • Wanted a turnkey financing solution that was easy to access with a flexible structure at the lowest possible rate

Reaching their destination

  • We collateralized clients’ existing assets to provide lowest-cost, flexible funding source
  • Conducted due diligence on prospective investment banks before engaging a potential partner who could maximize value
  • Incremental assets were allocated to a flexible carry strategy, exceeding costs
  • On the clients’ behalf, we identified and contacted various local agencies, providers, and caregiving resources that could be helpful
