Our focus is on both providing value-added advisory services to our clients and originating unique, proprietary private equity opportunities in the power and alternative energy industries. Our dual focus serves to meet the strategic and financial goals of our advisory clients and the investment objectives of our investor partners. We are an active participant in helping our advisory clients achieve their goals, and in some instances do so in a principal and management capacity.
The opportunities with which we become involved encompass the full spectrum from development stage to commercially operating companies and projects. Our advisory clients include corporations, project developers and technology owners. Pario Capital's principals have established themselves as trusted financial, strategic and business development advisors.
Our senior principals are veteran investment bankers with decades of experience working with power and alternative energy clients. They initially worked together over 20 years ago in the Utility and Project Finance Group of Merrill Lynch and have subsequent experience at firms including NewCourt Capital, Salomon Brothers, Chase-Chemical, CIT and Goldman Sachs. They have extensive product experience in equity and debt capital raising, project finance, M&A, tax leasing and general corporate finance. Their industry expertise is heavily concentrated on electric power and its diverse market opportunities including: i) traditional power generation, coal, gas, nuclear power, and transmission; ii) renewable generation in geothermal, wind, solar, biomass and waste to energy; and iii) new commercially proven technologies for bio fuels, green power, power storage, distributed generation, energy services and demand side management.
