Los Angeles (January 4, 2010) — Bruce Pompan announced today the launch of the investment advisory firm, Clear Capital Advisors. Based in Los Angeles, California, Clear Capital Advisors will provide independent advisory and capital raising services to middle-market and emerging growth companies, with securities offered through Fallbrook Capital Securities Corporation Member FINRA / SIPC. Mr. Pompan has nearly 20 years of experience providing transaction advice to owners of closely-held companies, and has served as lead advisor on sell-side and capital raising assignments for companies throughout the US.

“I am excited about launching an independent middle-market investment advisory firm that provides owners of closely-held companies the highest level of attention and service typically afforded to large companies,” commented Bruce Pompan, Managing Director and Founder of Clear Capital Advisors. “We are building a team with deep experience and relationships with institutional investors and capital-raising sources.” Mr. Pompan added, “A tremendous amount of consolidation has occurred in the investment banking world, with many middle-market banks having been acquired by large financial institutions. We feel that Clear Capital Advisors fills a void in the market — to be a trusted independent advisor and advocate for our clients. We seek to build long-term relationships and put our clients’ interests first.”

Prior to forming Clear Capital Advisors, Mr. Pompan was a Managing Director of Cappello Capital, where he led the firm’s M&A practice. He previously was a Director of the Investment Banking Group at ING Barings in Los Angeles.
