Plaza Capital – Friendly & Flexible Capital

Plaza Capital is a boutique merchant banking & advisory firm. At Plaza Capital, we leverage our capital markets expertise to deploy principal capital and serve as a hands-on advisor to public & soon-to-be public companies.

When making investments, we do not simply look for the right deals but, more importantly, focus on finding the right partners and intend to establish long-term mutually rewarding relationships.

We operate without any mandatory pre-set investment parameters. This enables us to fully explore all available options and curate a truly bespoke solution that creates maximum mutual value. Our approach to deal making is opportunistic and very nimble. We can execute quickly (as little as 2 weeks) utilizing a wide variety of structures; if we have a will to invest, we will find a way.

Plazacorp has famously been changing the Toronto skyline since 1982. Similarly, Plaza Capital has been changing the capital markets landscape by applying the same uncompromising discipline of long-term value investing.
