Since 1999, vFinance has been helping companies to achieve their goals. vFinance's Sterling Hispanic Capital Markets Group is dedicated to serving companies in the rapidly growing and lucrative U.S. Hispanic market.

The Group was started by Hispanic entrepreneur Charles Patrick Garcia, recognized by Hispanic Business magazine as one of the "100 Most Influential Hispanics" in the United States and by Hispanic magazine in 2004 as "Entrepreneur of the Year" for leading one of the fastest growing businesses in the nation. Based on his commitment to improve educational opportunities for all children, he was appointed by Gov. Jeb Bush to serve two terms on Florida's State Board of Education. He is a Board member of Winn Dixie Stores, Inc., one of the largest chains of grocery stores in America and he serves as Chairman of the Board of Visitors of the U.S. Air Force Academy. Through his experience as a former White House Fellow, advisor to leading businessmen including former Goldman Sachs chairman John C. Whitehead, experience working for three Presidents, and continuing participation in both corporate and public sector Boards he has built an extensive network which he leverages for the benefit of his clients.

vFinance's Sterling Hispanic Capital Markets Group specializes in capital raising and merger & acquisition (M&A) advisory services for U.S. Hispanic companies. vFinance offers a full suite of investment banking services including public fundraising, private fundraising and advisory services. The advisory services include M&A, Recaps, Fairness Opinions, consulting, assistance with business plans, and Valuation Analyses.

The Group focuses on both companies that offer products and services to the Hispanic market and companies that are controlled by Hispanic management teams. By specializing in the U.S. food and beverage, media, financial services and consumer goods sectors, the Group reaches a vast majority of U.S. Hispanic businesses. While we work with Hispanic companies throughout the U.S., our corporate headquarters in South Florida, and our offices in New York and California give us unique access to some of the largest Hispanic markets in the U.S. We possess additional unique capabilities that benefit our clients. Our highly trafficked vFinance web portal provides a window on what business sectors are emerging entrepreneurial areas.

By targeting our efforts, we can expand our existing network in the U.S. Hispanic market, spot emerging companies and attractive investment opportunities, and provide clients with specialized strategic advice. The Group's experienced investment banking professionals provide Hispanic clients with personalized, creative banking solutions and expert guidance. Through our focus, we are able to better serve this often overlooked, valuable market segment.
