Who is ACG?
Since our roots in the late 90’s in consulting, managing global market entries and cross-border M&A, we’ve evolved to be an investment banking advisory and asset management firm with hundreds of millions of dollars under management.
- To be the exclusive nexus for high-net-worth individuals and qualified institutional investors seeking to invest in real assets internationally.
- To be a global financial bridge, allowing people to move capital freely to wherever it is going to create the most value and generate the greatest impact.
ACG’s purpose is to add tangible and quantifiable value to all of our stakeholders, specifically our investors and those that we invest in, serving the unique needs of each group. Investments can be complex and require thorough analysis, weaving through layers of bureaucracy, access to professional networks, and overcoming regulatory hurdles. Our broad goal is to facilitate finance and investment by ensuring strategic and efficient allocation of our clients’ funds first, and our own capital second.
To consistently deliver value to anyone that we work with, whether it is an investor or an employee in a portfolio company.
To become the leading global conduit for cross-border investments into real assets for high-net-worth individuals and institutions looking at the U.S. as their primary investment market.
To create a lasting positive impact in any investment that we undertake.
Our Core Values
We strive for excellence in everything we do. While we are committed to growth, we realize that it can only be attainable by having a formidable track record and strong relationships with all stakeholders—clients, employees, intermediaries, asset sellers, and brokers. These core values are critical to achieving this. They permeate throughout every fiber of the ACG fabric.
- We believe that just because something hasn’t been done before, doesn’t mean that it can’t be done
- We believe in the three Ps: Patience, Persistence, and Perseverance
- We believe in unwavering attention to detail
- We believe that we always have to honor our commitments, even if at a material cost to us—promises are immune to changing circumstances
- We believe that timing is everything, which is why we strive to always be prompt
- We believe in upholding the highest ethical standards
- We believe in always offering our best in everything we do
- We believe that less is more, so we do fewer high quality deals
Aginsky Capital Group is today part of the Aginsky Group of companies, which includes our brokerage and advisory arm, our investment arm, our asset management business, and dozens of other entities. The company originally started two decades ago and grew from the original firm, Aginsky Consulting Group (also ACG), which was focused primarily on management consulting services and helping small and medium size companies to raise capital for their projects by assisting them with creating a compelling investment thesis, followed by developing their business plans, pitch decks, financial models, and other investor solicitation documents.
What started as just a small west coast firm, quickly grew to become an international company with offices in Eastern Europe, Asia, and North America. In the aftermath of the global recession of 2008, Aginsky Consulting Group went from being primarily a sell-side advisory to a buy-side advisory. We went from helping international clients to sell stakes in their companies to global investors to helping many of those same entrepreneurs protect their hard earned wealth by placing it into various conservative investment vehicles in the U.S., which we then managed on their behalf. Later, we started to co-invest with our investors into various deals, becoming principals in each of the transactions.
Today, the primary purpose of Aginsky Capital Group is seeking out unique investment opportunities, conducting due diligence on those, sourcing capital to deploy into those opportunities, which includes our own capital and that of other investors, followed by the ongoing management of assets acquired. Our expertise spans commercial real estate, private equity, and small to medium size businesses. We are also experienced in the EB-5 process, venture capital, and structured debt instruments. Our A-to-Z service suite allows us to build a deep understanding of our investors’ goals and investment needs. We can provide expert advisory services on company formation and structuring, transactions and brokerage services, and various aspects of operational management, while also partnering with other experts who can offer legal and tax advice, thus taking a rigorous approach to investment decision-making. Meeting our clients’ unique objectives is the definition of our investment philosophy.
Mr. Aginsky always has multiple ventures under his management at any one time, the last of which was a unique commercial real estate crowdfunding platform. He has previously managed a complex commercial real estate portfolio of assets for global investors including the development of two major hotels.
Prior to that, Mr. Aginsky advised high-profile private companies in the U.S. and abroad concerning multi-million dollar debt and equity financing, mergers and acquisitions, new market entries and other cross-border business transactions. Mr. Aginsky holds an MBA from Thunderbird School of Global Management and is a graduate of the OPM Program at Harvard Business School.
