Our Company

Our History

Now entering our fourth decade of service, HFG Capital continues to participate in a broad range of capital transactions, with an emphasis on our proprietary alternative to going public. HFG continually works to develop the Alternative Public Offering (APO®), so much so that we’ve recently included our Modified Direct Listing (MDL) technique as part of the model to ensure our clients quickly become publicly traded enterprises while mitigating the risks associated with an IPO in a more cost-efficient manner. These methods allow our clients to leverage our relationships with top tier investment banks, market makers, and legal and accounting professionals to provide a seamless transition from private to public status.

Our platforms afford our clients the ability to contemporaneously raise capital, make acquisitions, and seamlessly operate their businesses while attaining the goal of becoming publicly listed on a US stock exchange.

Given our commitment to continually meet the needs of our clients, HFG has added project finance and bond financing transactions to its suite of advisory services.

Domestic & International Reach

Our longevity has allowed us to expand our reach into China, Latin America, India and Southeast Asia. Our models work for both domestic and international corporations seeking to be publicly traded in order to raise capital, make acquisitions, attract and retain top talent and/or provide investors with an opportunity for liquidity. 

Our international clientele led us to develop the ETF now trading as the Invesco Golden Dragon China ETF (NASDAQ: PGJ). Many of our clients represented the initial portfolio companies of the ETF, further supporting the viability of our APO model.
