Background

Capital Focus was founded in 1999 by Julia Martin to meet the needs of small and new economy companies. With over 27 years of experience at some of Wall Street's biggest firms (including Morgan Stanley, Drexel Burnham and Kidder Peabody), Ms. Martin  believed that she could add greater value by providing similar services in a more personalized way to companies in their early stages of growth and development.

As the Firm developed, referrals from former colleagues, accounting firms, law firms, venture capitalists, and satisfied clients grew significantly, confirming the lack of experienced professionals assisting these early stage companies and reinforcing the idea behind the establishment of Capital Focus. The goal is to be responsive to these sources of opportunity, but selective in assignments, continuing to enhance Capital Focus  reputation in the market and maintaining a track record of successful transactions.

Capital Focus is located in downtown Brusells and maintains joint facilities with affiliates in the corporate restructuring and the investment banking business to provide professional resources to execute a range to provide profesional ressources to execute a range of assignments.
