Corporate Finance and Institutional Investments

Dykema has extensive experience representing participants across the investment management industry, including insurance companies, investment companies, investment advisers and broker-dealers, in connection with their investments in both debt and equity in both public and private companies. Because of the Firm’s extensive experience with regulated industries, we provide our insurance clients the finance expertise and regulatory insight needed to bring complex financings to a successful conclusion, while complying with the provisions of the Investment Company Act of 1940, the Investment Advisers Act of 1940 and other regulatory provisions.

In recent years, a number of states have established Certified Capital Company (CAPCO) programs to attract investment in emerging businesses into their states. Under such programs, states provide tax credits to insurance companies in exchange for which those companies provide initial seed money for investing in state-domiciled businesses. Dykema has substantial experience representing insurance companies making investments pursuant to CAPCO programs in a number of states.
