Investment Banking

Given our deep relationships with both traditional and alternative money managers globally, we are a natural when it comes to financing corporate issuers within the industry.


Equity Financing – It is in our core DNA at Union Gaming to provide equity capital market solutions to our issuer clients. Our specialty distribution teams and relationships with decision makers in the hedge fund, private equity, mutual fund, and sovereign wealth fund communities makes us one of the most effective distribution platforms for gaming related issuances. Our global distribution allows our teams to effectively target and complete transactions in rapidly changing market environments.

Debt Financing – We understand the importance of a market expert when it comes to debt financing. Our experience as an arranger or documentation agent aligns us perfectly with our issuer clients as that industry stamp of credibility when it comes to executing a transaction. Backed by a market leading global research team, we are well positioned across the global high yield and loan markets.

Private Placement – We have one of the industry’s most effective global distribution platforms for private placements, including relationships with hedge funds, private equity funds, pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, and family offices. This broad distribution allows our private placement professionals to structure, negotiate, and rapidly complete private transactions for our clients.

Strategic Advice – Whether it be development advisory, RFP advice, or optimizing the value of a business, the team at Union Gaming is highly focused on working alongside our companies regardless of any transaction opportunity. Our longstanding relationships with our clients underscores the success in partnering and working together toward a common goal.
