The history of GulfStar Group dates back to 1990 when the senior investment bankers of Rotan Mosle, the southwest middle market subsidiary of PaineWebber, acquired its investment banking business. The founding partners of GulfStar saw an opportunity to create a dominant investment banking boutique in the Southwest by focusing on the following belief:
Manage every engagement with senior investment bankers having the Experience to provide the transactional Leadership that enables them to consistently deliver superior Results for our clients.
Our unwavering commitment to this basic tenet has helped us complete more than 575 assignments in 21 years.
In October 2000 International Bank of Commerce, a publicly traded $12 billion bank holding company, acquired an equity interest in GulfStar, enabling the Firm to expand its merchant banking activities.
