de Visscher Advisors strives to be the premier, independent, financial consulting and
investment banking firm, serving the needs of entrepreneurs and business owning families,
applying the highest standards of quality, integrity, and individual attention

“Operating a family business is both challenging and rewarding.  We had a stock restriction agreement in place but no real mechanism for shareholders to divest themselves of shares if they so desired.

Recognizing that people are in different places in their lives, we needed to develop a stock redemption policy that would make individual’s shares more liquid, yet remain fair to the company.

With the help of de Visscher & Co. we were able to accomplish in a few short months what we had been ignoring for years.  They worked very well with our board; attorney and appraisal firm to develop a plan that not only addressed most of the individual shareholder needs but also those of the business. 

Their thoughtful approach was timely and inclusive, but perhaps most importantly, understood by all concerned.”
