Mr Gilles Herard, Jr is a seasoned Merchant Banker and has been in the banking industry for nearly 40 years. He worked early in his career at the Toronto Dominion Bank (Canada) and later on joined Manufacturer Hanover (MH) of New York as Senior Credit Analyst. He eventually became Managing Director of Capital Corp Merchant Banking, a company that syndicates and structures funding for top companies worldwide, all the while investing its own funds into the projects.



As Managing Director of Capital Corp Merchant Banking, Mr Herard has become a leading figure in international middle-market project financing and engineers all equity funding structures for projects at Capital Corp. Mr Herard has received numerous awards for his work and other contributions including being appointed to the Presidential Business Commission, Honorary Co-Chairman of the Business Advisory Council, and nominated as Executive of the Year by the internationally acclaimed National Register’s Who’s Who, among many others.



Our vision is to provide middle-market clients the same tailored solutions and funding packages in project financing worldwide by way of equity funding and debt financing - for existing companies as well as start-ups.

Equity funding is the process whereby an investor(s) will lend funds to a project promoter/owner, and in return the project owner will surrender a percentage of ownership of their project or company. The percentage of ownership is dependent on a number of factors, but in general it is based on the value of the company at the moment when the equity investment is established. Eventually, the project owner may buy back those shares from the investor(s).

The main advantage of private equity funding is that, as the investors buy a share of the company, there are no recurring payments, as would have been found in debt financing.

"On the premise that a single firm can combine Funding and Professional Consulting, we can stimulate optimal performance for our clients. Our success has come from our culture, which strives to foster the same values that help any business succeed: Hard Work, Common Sense, and Integrity."

Gilles Herard, Jr.
