PMCF provides seamless support and direct interaction with all of Plante Moran’s key service areas ensuring the most efficient communication and the highest levels of trust, confidentiality, and client service.

PMCF is a U.S. registered broker dealer that has successfully completed hundreds of transactions for clients including entrepreneur and family owned businesses, publicly traded enterprises, private equity, ESOPs, and other organizations. Our senior investment bankers are highly experienced professionals focused on establishing and building long term relationships that create significant shareholder value and positioning companies for the challenges inherent to a transformational sale or acquisition. We often advise clients over several years prior to a company sale. During this period businesses can make the most impactful changes to drive higher buyer interest and valuations.

Additionally, PMCF was a founding member of Corporate Finance International (“CFI”) which was established to provide clients turnkey international reach. CFI comprises PMCF’s global investment banking partners, local to critical geographies, which directly support cross border M&A.
