Who We Are

Who We Are

Evolution Financial Group is an integrated suite of financial businesses, including trading, investment banking and debt servicing. Our diversified capital markets specialties include: debt and equity finance, debt servicing, private equity and venture capital investments, securities research, and brokerage.  While we have many and diverse business lines, each one integrates into the whole to serve a purpose towards our general mission.

Evolution often acts as both financial sponsor and general partner in our business lines. We find this strongly aligns our interests with those of our clients, affiliates, and co-investors.

Evolution was founded in 2002 by Michael Lerch as an alternative investment manager. The firm has been built on a foundation of flexibility and scalability, allowing us to continually adapt to changing market conditions through new investment businesses, strategies, and products.

At Evolution, we believe that strong partnerships are crucial for our long-term success. We invest in our partners, who in turn invest in us, which leads to the discovery of unique opportunities and optimal mutual outcomes. This fosters a dynamic interaction between Evolution and its partners. Our technology, infrastructure, and staff expertise enable us to participate in transactions with some of the world’s largest and most reputable corporations, banks, and investment firms.

Experienced Team with Global Capabilities

Evolution’s global leadership is comprised of experienced professionals from many of the world’s leading banking and trading firms.  We believe that the depth and breadth of our intellectual capital and the rich experience of our professional teams have been the key drivers of the group’s ability to generate positive returns and to create strong, lasting business relationships with our partners.

Our international presence, especially in Japan, includes boutique investment banking and brokerage services that provide a source of proprietary credit- and equity-based deal-flow throughout the region.  Evolution also plays an active role in the Japanese business and cultural communities through our sponsorship of events and social impact programs.
