A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners, a full-service, regional investment firm, is pleased to announce the official name change of Euro Pacific Capital Inc. (“EPC”) to A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners (“A.G.P”) and the completion of the integration of A.G.P. and EPC’s Investment Banking and Capital Markets Departments.

Harry and David share nearly a decade of partnership together; throughout their careers David, Harry and their team have participated in more than $20 Billion in capital markets transactions as lead manager, co-manager or syndicate member. Under their leadership, the Investment Banking Team has completed in excess of 300 public offerings as a deal manager. The Team has traditionally focused on equity offerings and mergers & acquisitions but also has extensive expertise and alternative structuring capabilities with investment products for growth opportunities.
Completing the Investment Banking and Institutional Sales Team are several key EPC bankers based in Southern California. They include EPC Capital Markets’ Chris Cave and Jon Mendiola, Managing Directors of Investment Banking. Also part of the team are Chris Rieger, Thomas Tan, Managing Directors; and National Sales Manager Eric Steingruebner.
The acquisition of EPC met with regulatory approval in the first quarter of 2018, and the Firm officially rebranded itself A.G.P./Alliance Global Partners on June 1, with EPC becoming a division of A.G.P. The Firm offers its pre-eminent investment banking experience combined with the robust sales and trading platform of EPC, providing differentiated value across the capital markets spectrum on both the East and West Coasts of the United States.

Collectively, the A.G.P. team has experience in the healthcare, technology, consumer, energy and mining resources, and shipping sectors. A.G.P.’s alliance of professionals are prepared to meet the challenges of the future today.
A.G.P. is currently making key hires on the investment banking and institutional sales teams. These hires include Adam Kinzer, Senior Vice President, Debt Capital Markets. In addition, A.G.P. has hired George Anagnostou as Head of Institutional Sales.
