Jeffry Schneider’s Contribution In Transforming Ascendant Capital

Jeffry Schneider is the founder of the Ascendant Capital, LLC, which is an Austin-based boutique. With a vast experience in education, marketing, sales and operational services in addition to an innovative approach to financial structuring, the Ascendant Capital can raise funds for emerging and established alternative asset fund sponsors. Operating with broker-dealers, a network of Family Offices, Registered Investment Advisors, and Private Banks, the Ascendant distributes the private and public offering all over the world.

Under the stewardship of Schneider, Ascendant Capital has been able to see a rapid growth in just a course of five years. The business started with only two employees but now has thirty employees. Over time, Schneider and his team have been able to raise almost $1 billion in place of several managers. The firm works with 250 investment advisors, 50 broker dealers, and several family offices. The capital raised has been channeled to purchase auto dealerships, real estate, tech companies, among others. Despite this incredible growth, Schneider and his team show no intentions of slowing down, and they have their sight focused on the future. They are currently targeting to raise an excess of $50 million every month.

According to Schneider, “alternative investments is an ideal way through which holdings can be diversified, and volatility reduced especially given the current position of markets. The markets have experienced enormous growth over the recent years, and such growth will be on an accelerating trend in the coming years. By looking at the smartest money pools, allocation to alternative investment is at a level much greater than most of the rias. Generally, client portfolios are not sufficiently allocated to alternative investment.”

The culture of Ascendant Capital does play a large part in its success. The environment does encourage open dialogues and trust among team members. Such ideas of transparency, which Schneider prides himself, have also extended externally. The firm has an impressive alignment and makes it its fiduciary responsibly towards stakeholders the top priority.

Before working with the Ascendant Capital, LLC, Jeffry used to work at both Paradigm Global Advisors and Axiom Capital Management. In addition, he spent time at Smith Barney, Merrill Lynch, and Alex Brown. He is an alumnus of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

He is also passionate about exploring the world, a thing that has seen him travel extensively across Asia, South America, Europe and more. Jeffry Schneider believes firmly in helping the less fortunate, and this has seen him get involved in several charitable organizations such as Cherokee Children Home, Wonders and Worries, God Loves We Deliver, and Gazelle Foundation.

Boutique banking is another category that Madison Street Capital has been recognized for, mainly because they are not only considered an international banking and investment firm, but they are also nominated for the award that is granted to those firms that are considered to be boutique firms. The International and Industrial’s Deal of the Year, makes reference to those deals that are under $100 million dollars.

The one aspect of their business that got them nominated for this award is one of their most important acquisitions that took place a little earlier this year. Their acquisition of Acuna and Asociados, a large company that works in the fabricating of steel and has been around for more than 20 years was not an easy acquisition to make. However, with the expertise and service that Madison Street Capital is able to provide it’s no surprise that they were able to move forward with the purchase.

Cross-border transactions are not unusual for Madison Street Capital, and they are yet again one of the many reasons that they are so successful in what they do in the boutique banking industry, as well as with their investments both large and small.

Madison Street Capital is one of the most sought after investment banking firms in the country.
