EKN Financial Services Launches ENHANCED BANKING and syndicate
(1888PressRelease) EKN Financial Services Now Positioned as Premier Bank on Long Island
Offering Investment Opportunities in Emerging Companies due to Heightened Due Diligence
(1888PressRelease) - Melville N. Y.-- EKN Financial Services Inc., a FINRA member
Investment Banking firm and full service Broker Dealer announced today that it has expanded its
Investment Banking and Syndicate Departments with the intent of becoming the premier Long
Island based Investment Bank generating investment opportunities in thoroughly due diligence,
high quality emerging companies.
Thomas Giugliano, president of EKN Financial Services, and a 15 plus year veteran of the
business commented on this development, "We have taken steps to address both a need and a
barrier to entry in the capital markets place. There are many exciting emerging companies both
public and private that merit direct investor participation in the form of investment banking
offerings. At the same time, FINRA, which regulates the activities of its members in this regard,
has heightened the burden of due diligence on its member firms that offer this form of
investment to the public, and attached even greater liability to those firms for the performance of
EKN Financial Services realized that few, if any, firms based on Long Island possess the
capacity to satisfy this heightened obligation. EKN therefore took steps to position themselves to
meet these requirements by significantly expanding their staff in these practice areas. The
professionals now in place in the Banking and Syndicate departments of EKN Financial Services
have many years of senior experience and possess an array professional degrees and licensing
ranging from law degrees, including a specialization in patent applications, mechanical
engineering and advanced financial degrees. This range of education and experience more than
amply qualifies the EKN team to evaluate and perform a very high level of due diligence on
potential banking, merger and acquisition and syndication candidates.
