Who We Are...

Industry Insiders.  Consummate Professionals.  Tenacious Advocates.


Some things are hard to replicate - experience, relationships and credibility top the list.

At Hinge, our founder has been a top-level executive in the capital markets for many years.  He has held the most senior leadership and management roles in the industry, including as the President and CEO of both a full service IIROC independent investment dealer and a fully-registered FINRA (US) introducing broker-dealer.

The knowledge gained while serving in these capacities has resulted in an intimate familiarity with virtually all aspects of the capital markets, its participants and the dynamics between them.  This cannot be overstated.

You have important questions:

Which institutional investment funds actively manage small and mid-cap mandates?

Do firms have retail advisors with the discretion to make single-stock investments?

Which investment dealers are best able to profile and support specific companies?

What financial instruments can impede a company's ability to raise future capital?

How can an exchange-listing decision impact the potential investor audience?

We have the answers to these and many other questions that matter to companies seeking growth capital.  Whether you are a private company charting your capital markets course, or a public company looking to strengthen your industry relationships and develop new ones - we can help.

We are Hinge Markets.

Who We Are Not...

No hype. No empty promises. 


At Hinge Markets we take the long-term view.  We know that it has taken many years to earn the trust and respect of our clients and colleagues... 

and we do not take that lightly.  

While opportunities for short-term gains may abound for those less protective of their reputations, we take a decidedly different approach.

We carefully select each mandate based on:

1) A thorough assessment of the integrity of the people involved 

2) The prospects and investment merits of the business

 - in that order.

Once engaged, our clients can have confidence that Hinge will work tirelessly, with professionalism and integrity, to ensure that we deliver on their behalf.

We won't accept a mandate unless we can!

Why Hinge?


These are more than just words to us at Hinge Markets - they are our credo. 


This is what they mean for our clients: 

Insight: We bring the entirety of our extensive skill set and

experience to bear on everything we do.

Integrity:  We highly value our reputation and relationships - so      

we choose our clients and mandates very selectively.

Impact: We take our responsibilities seriously - we will not take on any role unless we wholeheartedly believe we can deliver value.
