Overview and History

Phoenix Capital Investments, LLC, is a partner-owned, New York City-based advisory firm founded in 2000. We specialize in alternative investment strategies and private placement of equity and debt for early-stage through mature companies. We serve a global, cross-cultural market, and have experience in a broad range of industries.

PCI’s principals are well known for innovative, customized financial structures and groundbreaking private-placement transactions in the global capital markets, especially in:

  • Securitization and structured investments
  • Asset-backed, mortgage-backed and government-backed finance
  • Development and management of large infrastructure and capital projects

For investors, we provide alternative investments that generate attractive risk-adjusted returns (“alpha”) that are typically not correlated with broad equity and bond indices.


Uncompromising Integrity

We have a sterling reputation for uncompromising integrity and trust. Our commitment to our clients has been the cornerstone of our firm’s mission since its founding in 2000. Our goal is to create long-term relationships with clients and investors. To reach this goal, we must be confident—before we take on a mandate—that private transactions will succeed for both issuers and investors.

Phoenix Capital’s management team members formerly worked for some of the world’s finest financial institutions, including Citigroup, Salomon Smith Barney, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan Chase, BNP Paribas, UBS, Bear Stearns and Freddie Mac. They share a common entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to helping clients solve problems and achieve objectives. The firm’s cofounders, Massy and Marjan Homayouni, have combined over 50 years of experience in global investment banking, structured finance, private equity, complex alternative investments, and credit and risk management.

As of early 2013, the Phoenix Capital team has secured over $60 billion of funding, issued over $500 billion of securities in the global capital markets, and managed infrastructure projects for both governments and the private sector.
