April 20, 2017 - Tom Winnifrith and RiverFort CEO co-author structured finance white paper


Making Structured Finance Work! Tom Winnifrith, founder of leading stock exchange commentary website Share Prophets, and Brian Kinane, CEO of RiverFort Global Capital, have published a co-authored structured financing solutions white paper.


It has always been RiverFort’s view that structured finance, when done right, provides a valuable source of capital to public companies, enabling management teams to execute business strategies that enhance shareholder value. In their paper, Tom and Brian provide a deeper understanding of the positive aspects of structured financing by (1) distinguishing between reasonable and unreasonable structures, (2) identifying ways in which companies and shareholders can arrange funding to complement equity and debt investments that manage financial risk and (3) looking at how the industry in general can work to institutionalise structured finance instruments in order to make them a routine part of the equity capital markets.
