Q. Do you recommend Outsourcing?
appropriate and depending upon the applications, economics,
and scalability. However, we think the more proper term to use
is “Sourcing”. Domestic industry has embraced low-cost, best
source solutions for matters previously considered crucial to
remain “in-house”. The rise of access to the internet has made
sourcing possibilities diverse and global.
Q. Is Whitehall a Licensed
Broker or Securities Broker?
Capital is an Advisory Services
company, so we are not engaged in brokerage, licenses, or various
securities. The restrictive and cumbersome nature of the various
SEC, and state ‘Blue-sky’ laws, and the myriad of potential
compliance issues raises your fees, slows the overall process,
and restricts meaningful activities. Whitehall keeps arm’s length
from these activities.

arrange for and structure financing, this reduces the complexity
for you. Structured Debt/equity and lease financings are a function
of our expertise. We reduce your overall cost of financing.

network goes beyond banks, to a wide expanse of international
sources and specialty investment lenders, hedge funds, pension
funds, depending upon the assignment.
Q. Can Whitehall perform investment
banking, securities or brokerage activity for us?
- we serve as management advisers. Whitehall finds available
low-cost options, as this process is most crucial to your success.
Whitehall avoids “binder building” and expense inducing activities
for you. We think this consultant “binder building” is wasteful
of your money, dilutes our effectiveness as your advisors. While
investment banks, and Professional Accounting firms are effective
for many tasks, engaging one for strategy development and consulting
in your operations, drives up your costs of engagement needlessly.
Q. Do I need lawyers or an
recommend, for financings, that you have your attorney review
key decisions, so why spend ‘twice’, or with investment banks
and CPA firms, -three times - for an activity that is straightforward
and should be simple. We are advocates of doing things properly.
Q. Are you saying that we
should not use lawyers?
the contrary. Since legal work which you will pay for anyway,
is usually a requirement of a funding or an M/A, and available
to most companies for all activities, we see no reason to add
more fees for “legal reviews”. Use legal advisors when you need
them, not in between adding to expense.

advisory assignment fees?
upon engagement and scope of assignment, it is usually equivalent
of part time help over several months. If it is a financing,
most fees are upon completion. For all work, we take pains to

180 day Part-time retainer, with specific objectives. Whitehall

Q. What is the advantage of
partitioning a vital process from day to day operations, we
free up your team to keep focus on today’s activity. ‘Switching
hats’ from day to day operations to planning are very difficult.
Big businesses separate the roles. We step in to help smaller
companies as ‘stand in’ experts to support your team. We serve
to “supercharge” your own team and make your company better.

as develop new strategies leveraging your strengths for your
