Samson’s Merchant Banking Group invests in early stage companies and crafts various private placements and offerings, employing a comprehensive philosophy in the development and funding of a variety of projects. By utilizing innovative investment strategies and transaction structures in order to prudently leverage our assets, we have managed to increase funding capabilities, mitigate risk, and increase our overall rate of return. In addition, we are able to secure significant capital through other financial institutions and private equity funds by crafting “blended portfolio” investments, often in concert with major insurance and reinsurance companies. Risk management and preservation of capital are the hallmarks of our investment strategy. This strategy manifests itself in the success of our proprietary Samson Investment Funds.See “Merchant Banking” and “Investment Funds” Sections
