Commonwealth Capital Advisors (CCA), an investment banking advisory firm, today announced that it has combined a number of software modules and features that were previously sold separately under its Financial Architect System™ product line. It has also significantly reduced the overall cost of the combined products and services.
The Financial Architect System™ is a patent-pending method designed to help entrepreneurs simplify the process and reduce the cost of raising capital through issuing securities. In addition, CCA has added templates for issuing “Seed Capital Convertible Bridge NotesTM” – a simple and rapid form of financing for small companies – to one of its two consolidated product suites.
“The goals of the Financial Architect System™ and the changes we’re announcing today are simple,” said Charles Dreher, CCA’s Executive Vice President. “We want to help start ups and early stage companies significantly lower the costs and increase the speed of raising capital. Just as important, we want to provide business owners with an easy-to-use expert system that will enable them to choose the right deal structure for capital they need without giving up equity unnecessarily.”
“Using our system, an entrepreneur can create the necessary documents for convertible bridge notes in about two hours and start raising capital the same day,” Dreher noted. “To raise additional capital using our system, a client can then produce a securities-offering document, for legal counsel review, compliant with Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933 in as little as 20 hours at a fraction of the time and cost it would take using conventional methods.”
“We believe there’s significant and growing demand among business owners for control over their financing strategies. The low cost of the Financial Architect System™ and the way we’ve simplified our offerings into just two product suites designed to meet this ‘do-it-yourself’ approach,” he concluded.
