ALLENTOWN, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2012) - Ambassador Financial Group, Inc., a FINRA-licensed broker-dealer and financial services provider to financial institutions, is pleased to announce that on October 1, 2012, Capital Insight Partners, Chicago, IL, a leading investor relations firm focused on community banks, will become part of Ambassador. Jacob Eisen and Tad Gage, co-founders of Capital Insight Partners, will become Managing Directors at Ambassador.
Capital Insight, which has served the investor relations needs of community bank clients nationally since 2007, specializes in investor relations, strategic planning, messaging and communications.
Capital Insight's Jacob Eisen said: "Joining Ambassador vastly expands our service offering and provides Ambassador with an end-to-end banking consulting organization that delivers tremendous value to the industry. In contrast to many shrinking competitors, Ambassador is in growth mode and we are thrilled to join their team.
"We believe community banks have been universally bashed as credible investment opportunities and many high-quality financial institutions have been painted with a negative brush. We are not only excited to share a positive message with banks about their futures and as meaningful investments, but the alliance with Ambassador is a way for our clients to gain access to a team dedicated to the community banking industry. Ambassador doesn't see banks as transaction opportunities, but rather as pillars of local communities that create jobs and build value for all stakeholders."
Robert J. Pachence, Jr., Managing Director of Ambassador, said: "The team at Capital Insight Partners enhances our capabilities in serving our community bank customers while also expanding our geographic footprint and client base. Jacob's and Tad's years of experience, balanced skill sets, and innovative business model provide immediate value to our clients. Together, our client-driven business model assists clients in improving performance, mitigating risk, and developing and conveying their message to the investment community."
Matthew T. Resch, CFA, Managing Director of Ambassador, added: "Helping clients is the hallmark of our business philosophy, and Capital Insight Partners fortifies our ability to deliver on that objective. Whether a client needs balance sheet management, to raise capital, M&A advisory, fixed income access and execution, a strategic plan, or ongoing investor relations consulting, Ambassador is equipped to provide the solution."
Ambassador's focus is to assist clients in achieving their strategic goals by offering personalized customer service along with a comprehensive suite of capital market services including fixed income balance sheet management and investment banking. This combination enhances Ambassador's platform to include investor relations and financial communication services, while strengthening its stature as a preferred strategic partner to depository institutions.
Capital Insight delivers investor targeting and financial communications strategies to micro-, small- and mid-cap public and privately held financial institutions. Management and boards of directors rely on Capital Insight to identify opportunities to enhance shareholder value, communicate their companies' financial and business strategies and information clearly, and to introduce management to new investors to build a growing, diversified shareholder base.
"Joining the Ambassador team gives Capital Insight access to some of the top strategic thinkers in the banking business, which will reinforce our ability to give clients the best messages and information possible to share with the investment community," said Gage. "Community banks have a tremendous opportunity to distinguish themselves by communicating their growth opportunities and value-creating capabilities with stakeholders and new audiences."
