Greenside Capital Advisors launches as investment banking firm

The Firm's co-founders are Eric Higgins and Bob Snape, former senior bankers at BDO Capital Advisors, LLC where they closely collaborated for nearly a decade

Greenside Capital Advisors, LLC (“Greenside Capital” or the “Firm”) launched as a national independent elite investment banking boutique with global reach focused on providing middle market companies with M&A advisory (sell-side and buy-side), board advisory, and business valuation services.

The Firm’s co-founders are Eric Higgins and Bob Snape, former senior bankers at BDO Capital Advisors, LLC where they closely collaborated for nearly a decade. Greenside Capital will leverage Higgins and Snape’s successful transactional track record, having executed over 200 sell-side M&A advisory engagements, representing over $22 billion in aggregate transaction value over the course of their 46+ year collective careers.

Higgins and Snape also have extensive cross-border transaction experience, including M&A efforts across six continents. Their clients have included family and founder-owned businesses, Fortune 500 corporations, international conglomerates, and leading private equity firms. Greenside Capital will specialize in six industry verticals: Business Services, Consumer and Retail, Energy, Environmental & Infrastructure, Healthcare & Life Sciences, Manufacturing & Distribution, and Technology.

Greenside Capital will manage each client engagement with Higgins and Snape as a single deal team creating an interchangeable, proactive, and dedicated service delivery platform backed by a powerful combination of senior banker expertise and a relentless pursuit of client goals. The Firm’s motto is “We treat your business like it’s our own,” with a singular goal of meeting clients’ goals while maximizing shareholder value. Greenside Capital’s commitment includes 24/7 access to senior bankers, unparalleled responsiveness, and efficient management of all aspects of the process.

According to Co-Founder and Senior Managing Director Higgins, “We see a clear opportunity to provide superior investment banking services to clients that are either too small for bulge bracket firms or too complex for smaller investment banks. Greenside Capital combines the capabilities, relationships, and experience of a large global investment bank with the client service, attention to detail, and agility of an elite boutique firm.”

Co-Founder and Senior Managing Director, Snape added, “What makes us different is our hands-on approach, experience, and the breadth of our expertise. Our former clients know that Eric and I bring a formidable team to the middle market, working on complex and innovative transactions with unparalleled efficiency and commitment, and a proven track record of delivering world-class outcomes. I couldn’t be more excited to build on this reputation at Greenside Capital.”
