Investment Banking & Launches

The Decision Nexus team is expert in executing all elements of investment banking mandates from capital raises, mergers & acquisitions, private equity recaps, and staging for an IPO. These requirements are a natural complement to the strategic consulting support Decision Nexus provides to its clients. All securities related transactions are executed through Decision Nexus’ strategic partner, a FINRA registered banking platform with over twenty years of international experience in originating and closing middle market ($20 M – $500 M) transactions. Mark Mansfield, founder of Decision Nexus LLC, holds his Series 7, 24 and 63 licenses.

In addition to the Team’s expertise as a banking intermediary, if appropriate, we will plan and oversee a Company’s launch – i.e. we’ll structure the strategy and tactical planning, stage the principal investing and then directly participate in the execution and/or oversight of key tactical launch requirements – (fractional CEO, CFO as well as Advisory or Board positions).
