Wealth Sector-Focused Investment Bank Names Partner

The US investment bank works in sectors such as among RIAs, wealth managers, and fintechs.

Republic Capital Group, an investment bank concentrating on the RIA, wealth and asset management, securities, and fintech industries, has appointed Jim Collins as partner, managing director and general counsel. 

Collins was previously a partner at the M&A investment bank, Silver Lane Advisors, and at the law firm, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, among other roles.

Over his 15-year career, Collins has acted for public and private asset and wealth management firms and hedge funds in mergers and acquisitions, stock and asset purchases and sales, private and public equity and debt financings, securities offerings, and other general corporate matters. Collins has also counseled clients on Securities and Exchange Commission reporting and disclosure, corporate governance matters, and stock exchange listing requirements.

"Jim is an exceptional attorney and counselor," John Langston, Republic Capital's founder and managing partner, said. He continued: "A trusted advisor to many of the industry's largest and fastest growing firms, he is a true subject matter expert in asset and wealth management M&A."
