Mr. McNeill is an accredited investor that has over 30 years experience in the financial services industry and active within his current portfolio of both private and public company investments. He founded Metro Equity Capital and on the principles of giving fair and unbiased recommendations to its clients. Prior to founding Metro, Mr. McNeill had seen far too many firms in the industry more concerned with charging a large upfront fee on client engagements and less emphasis on performance-based strategies in delivering a successful financial outcome for their clients. Many firms approach to new deal flow was if a client paid the engagement fee, the firm took on the assignment regardless of the probability of the successful outcome for the client. Metro’s approach is different as we are investors with a hybrid financial solution approach in which we may invest our own personal capital along side other general and limited partners. In addition by leveraging Metro Equity Capital’s investment platform, we are also able to respond more efficiently and timely as Metro conducts its own internal financial diligence and prepares its own offering memorandum (customized to the client’s criteria) which is submitted blindly to Metro’s proprietary general partner and limited partner database. Metro’s investors will let them know immediately if your opportunity matches their investment mandate.
