Beating the Odds: James F Pomeroy to Launch New Company

Share Article

Finance whiz James F Pomeroy is in the midst of launching a new company. In the process, he advises finance professionals on how what it takes for a business (new or established) to succeed in an uncertain and sometimes risky business climate.

James F Pomeroy and his associates are creating a new kind of company designed to help with multi-national infrastructure and ventures that can be classified into two distinct groups: Real Estate Private Equity and Corporate Opportunity.

A new business model
According to James, the new company combines the business models of these two sectors. It is unique in that it utilizes the following in combination:
the trading of a commodities- based platform (precious metals, oil, financial instruments, collateral) to create significant current cash flow (like a trading company)
the longer-term wealth accumulation of smartly structured real estate projects
the selection and private equity investments or joint ventures in corporate investing

The model is built upon the traditions of the great merchant bankers like Baron Von Rothschild and JP Morgan (James’ business heroes). James’ new company combines this model, intellectual currency, and real capital to a platform of current, medium-term and longer-term growth in one amorphous profit center.

Can a new business ride an uncertain economy?
James F Pomeroy has founded and established several businesses in the course of his 30-year finance career. Having experienced both wins and losses, he is in a good position to answer the question: How can a business, any business, ride the economy’s ups and downs?

From his experience as a financial entrepreneur, he has concluded that when markets are not responsive to clients, one has to do the following:
First, think creatively and outside the box. For example, he says, “We created special classes of collateral to enhance the credit worthiness of our projects and the interest of money partners for our clients. We have had a huge successful closing ratio because of that.”
Second, focus on substance vs. structure, then create added value in all that you do. In one scenario, he developed value-added consulting and finance strategies for a client, writing and rewriting the capital markets plan for the company and, in essence, completing an incredible due diligence for the client. Then his team identified product end buyers and helped the client pre-sell products at a discount to A level corporate credit buyers.
Third, once James’ firm and its client agree to move forward, James asks the client to escrow or set aside funds for the capital-formation activities of his firm. This way, James’ attorneys, underwriters, the broker dealers he affiliates with, and professional services group he has contracted are all paid in reserve.
Fourth, James’ firm drives optimum performance through best-efforts campaigns - from the start of the project all the way to custom fitting collateral, recruiting officers and directors, and other activities. At the end of the day, the client gets a one-of-a-kind finance deal custom-structured to his requirements - sort of an “Armani” that is made to hang like no other suit can.

That is what we do, James says simply.
