Capital Markets Veterans Launch Advisory Firm Geared to Sale-Leasebacks
A team of experienced investment bankers and real estate and M&A professionals has formed SLB Capital Advisors, a real estate advisory firm focused on sale leaseback and M&A-related real estate transactions. The newly launched firm is headquartered in downtown Manhattan.
The group, with backgrounds at RBC Capital Markets, Bank of America and Salomon Smith Barney as well as Stan Johnson Company, serves private equity firms and public and private corporations in evaluating their real estate capitalization alternatives. Collectively, the SLB team has closed more than $140 billion of capital markets and sale leaseback transactions across a variety of industries.
“SLB Capital Advisors operates at the convergence of real estate and corporate finance,” said Matt Wrobleski, SLB co-founder and partner. “Differentiating from other general players in the space, our team uniquely brings the corporate finance and M&A experience needed to comprehensively analyze a sale leaseback and its impact on a company.”
