VCAP Solutions will have dedicated professionals in offices in New York, Atlanta and Chicago.

VCAP Solutions has been formed in response to the unprecedented changes in the financial markets that have created a demand for independent advice, valuation, and analysis. The VCAP Solutions’ team brings a wealth of structured products, whole loan, derivatives and capital markets experience to a wide range of potential projects. While each project is unique, VCAP Solutions’ services are focused in three main areas: Valuation and Financial Reporting, Risk Assessment, and Strategic Advisory. VCAP Solutions’ range of capabilities are broad, including delivering independent valuations on large portfolios, providing granular cash flow and stress analysis, and assisting in portfolio management and trade execution on individual assets and portfolios.

“Our clients need access to unbiased advice supported by granular information, market perspective, and robust analytics capabilities,” said Charles McLendon, Managing Partner at VCAP Solutions. “The combination of an experienced team of structured products professionals with access to market leading tools developed over the last six years at Vertical Capital will allow VCAP Solutions to be an immediate leader in the market for providing valuation and risk management services.”

“Vertical Capital has invested heavily in building out the best tools in the marketplace for evaluating complex loans and securities.
