Carpenter & Company is a private equity and financial advisory firm specializing in the banking industry.
Founded in 1974, Carpenter has decades of experience as a trusted partner for bankers, regulators, and investors. Over those years, we have supported the success of hundreds of banks and other financial institutions.
The firm’s private equity partnerships currently own controlling positions in five banks with aggregate assets of $3.7 billion. They have over $280 million in committed equity capital, primarily provided by large public pension funds and other institutional investors. In the advisory practice, the firm’s investment banking subsidiary, a registered broker-dealer, completed numerous bank M&A and capital assignments over the last fifteen years, and the firm’s strategic and regulatory consulting practice has undertaken many major assignments in the same period. Through various partnerships, the firm served as one of the nation’s largest asset managers for U.S. banking regulators such as the FDIC and the Resolution Trust Corporation, providing those agencies with asset management and disposition services for over $3.0 billion in banking assets.
