I know firsthand Michael's brilliance as a strategist for financing critical infrastructure and advising government and private organizations on building investment partnerships that create growth, progress and jobs."
32 Advisors was built to address the challenges encountered where the public and private sector intersect. CEO and Founder Robert Wolf commented:
"Infrastructure is a natural addition to our existing business and presents a huge opportunity given the state of infrastructure in the U.S. and around the world. Pair that with the vast sources of capital that are sitting on the sidelines and public sector resources that are being underutilized, and one can see the need for an intermediary that can bridge this gap."
