Fieldstone in New York and Asia Changes Name to Auria

November 15, 2018

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 15, 2018--Fieldstone Private Capital Group Inc., a leading institutional financial advisor specializing in energy and infrastructure projects, announced today its name change to Auria Capital, Inc. The change comes as the New York-based firm and its Asian subsidiaries reaffirm their commitment to global relationships focused on energy and power development and transactions.

“More than using a single approach that is set in stone, we have spent the past 28 years listening to the ever-changing ideas, plans and financing needs of our clients, hearing the best approach for the market, and helping to tell a story that catches the interest of institutional investors globally,” said Manfred Ernst, Managing Director of Auria. “The renewables, sustainable and traditional power and energy options offer great opportunity for global investors looking to deploy capital.”

Fieldstone began in 1990, dedicated to offering independent investment advisory service to private equity and non-recourse lenders with a strong foundation in infrastructure projects around the world. Today, Auria continues to focus on its legacy of working in power and energy finance – from project development to financing and M&A transactions.

“Auria is about the relationships we’ve developed based on deep knowledge of the industry, awareness of market responses to new regulations, and international complexities that present challenges that often lead to highly structured opportunities for investors,” said Managing Director Anastasia Pozdniakova. “Our success on both the buy and sell side gives us a strong referral base across the industry.”

The Auria teams in New York and Asia combine an innate curiosity and exploration of new technologies with a long-standing understanding of more traditional energy sources, production and delivery systems, each requiring a unique story for investors to perceive value.

“We will continue to deliver added value to our clients in the Asia Pacific region” says Willy Lim, Managing Director of the Asian operations in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur. “Asia is playing catch-up with Europe in terms of reducing carbon footprint, and we are well placed to support environmentally conscious efforts for power generation in the Asian countries in the coming years.”

Auria’s lead analyst in New York Mike Lyng notes the augmentation of the business beyond traditional energy to include renewables and innovation that require extensive knowledge of niche areas such as biofuels, government regulations and subsidies that add value. “The diversity we find in this sector demands an advisor that can support clients from development capital to construction finance and potential transactions with other investors with detailed investigation of potential value.”

Auria Capital ( www.auriacap.com ) is an employee-owned, boutique investment bank providing services to clients in the energy and infrastructure industries with a dedicated practice of advising global clients in their needs of raising capital, making investments or divesting of assets, companies and technologies.
