Utilize the power of Raintree Corporate Finance’s network

Raintree Corporate Finance (RCF) assists entrepreneurs, management teams, developers and business owners in raising capital and completing mergers and acquisitions. RCF was established to provide innovative transaction solutions to companies that require growth capital or are seeking growth through acquisition. We also assist business owners who are assessing their succession plan or seeking an exit.

Underwriting and Financing

At Raintree Corporate Finance we work with business owners to understand their financing objectives. We consult with entrepreneurs, managers and executives to understand the business plan and evaluate the existing capital structure.
Using this information, we make recommendations regarding attracting the right – lowest cost – capital that best suit the needs of our clients.
We understand how to build simple or complex capital strategies through multiple capital channels and partners. RCF has access to wide distribution through our affiliate, Raintree Financial Solutions and a network of other independent dealers. Additionally, in combination with our RCF affiliates we have a broad network of institutional, high-net-worth and family office investors. RCF also has strong links to syndication partners across Canada. In conjunction with Raintree Financial Solutions, we have raised over $700 million in the last seven years.

Understanding Objectives

We take the time to understand what management’s goals are and how they expect to achieve them by thoroughly diving into the detail about each project. Working with management, we use our experience to supplement their plans with considerations required for attracting capital.

Financing Strategy

Using what we know about your business and the broad financing industry, we develop a plan to attract capital to your business. This plan must incorporate existing information, management’s expectations and future capital requirements. Upon your approval, we begin preparing information required to attract financing.

Capital Channels

Matching a company’s balance sheet to the right capital requires an understanding of the Canadian capital markets. We have spent years understanding the channels of capital in the market and can navigate them on behalf of our clients.

Investor/Lender Introductions

We make regular contact with institutional investors and lenders across Canada. When determining what type of capital a business should raise it is critical to ensure that there is access to that form of capital.

Mergers and Acquisitions

Raintree Corporate Finance works with mid-sized, private businesses (valued between $5 – $100 million), seeking to acquire complementary businesses, or sell their own business. These transactions are complex so it is imperative that you find the right team to lead you through.
Based on our experience, there are 5 critical success factors that must be considered in our approach to every project. If you are contemplating a transaction and are looking for advice, contact us to assess your needs and have us tell you how we can assist you.

Industry Expertise

We have operated in the middle market mergers and acquisitions field for our entire history. Our ability to identify issues prior to them arising during a transaction is critical to maximize value. There is no transaction without identifying the right buyer and our experience operating in the Canadian market places us in a superior position to identify the right buyer, whether strategic or financial.

Confidential Process

We utilize a proven process of marketing that ensures that business owners keep their information confidential throughout the process. This can be critical when dealing with customers, employees and competitors.


Our guiding principle throughout our engagements is maintaining the highest quality standards in the services that we provide. We present information to buyers that is routinely considered to be industry leading. This assists in framing a business in the best light, which ensures that the offers we receive are in-line with our expectations.

Collaborative Approach

Raintree is committed to developing a collaborative partnership with our clients. We have specialist skills in corporate finance, but we do not have the same familiarity with your company as you do. We expect to work with you to understand your business and use that knowledge to execute the transaction.

Pragmatic Advice

Raintree Corporate Finance provides clients with advice through what can often be the most complicated transaction in the company’s history. Our advice will take the form that best suits the situation and creates the most value for shareholders.

Special Projects

Raintree Corporate Finance brings experience, expertise and a large network together to assist clients with what often amounts to the most complex transaction they will face. We have created a network of investment banking professionals to help service clients in other markets and industries. Our goal is to provide the best advice to our clients – sector and geographic expertise matters. Please contact us to find out how we can assist you with your capital or merger and acquisition requirements.

Raintree Corporate Finance has developed a network of investment banking professionals across Canada who have local market knowledge and industry/sector expertise. It is not enough to know how to do something – we are experts. We know there are times that we might not have the full breadth of experience to provide the highest level of advice – so we’ve ensured that when we don’t know, we know someone who does.

It may sound cliché, but Corporate Finance is as much about who you know, as it is what you know. We have aligned ourselves with professionals in Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver who bring experience, expertise and a track record of success to meet our clients’ needs.
