Core Values



Capstone offers clients more than 30 years of public finance experience, representing its principal's deep market expertise in municipal finance.  Capstone was established (as Knight Capital, LLC) upon the premise to always serve the client's needs first.  Today, Capstone continues to adhere to the same core values upon which Knight Capital was founded: 

Integrity  |  Creativity  |  Focus


We build a partnership with clients based upon trust.

Capstone was founded and continues to be committed to the highest standards of integrity and ethics.  We take our fiduciary duty to our clients very seriously.  Our client's best  interest always comes first. We take great care to deal with our clients in a completely transparent manner.  Our dealings with all market participants are fair and we never engage in deceptive,  dishonest or unfair practices.

We are creative, yet thorough, in addressing our clients' challenges.

At Capstone we believe that talent -- one of our most valuable assets -- is most relevant when used as a resource for our clients.  We utilize state-of-the-art financial modeling resources to develop unique solutions for our clients' most challenging problems.  We apply our understanding of municipal finance, capital markets, law, accounting and finance to bear in serving our clients' needs.



We have a singular focus on supporting governments and nonprofits.

Capstone is devoted to serving only state and local governments, their agencies and authorities and nonprofit organizations.  Our client focus results in exceptional depth and the ability to apply broad-ranging experience to every client's particular needs.  The recommendations and decisions that we make are designed solely for our client's benefit.

Diversity and Inclusion

At Capstone, we understand that diversity makes us better -- better at developing solutions that reflect a broader perspective -- and better at serving our clients.  Capstone is fully committed to maintaining an open, inclusive culture where differences in background, experience and perspective are respected, valued and even encouraged.

Strategic Partnerships

As our clients' needs become more complex, they increasingly require a collaborative approach to problem solving.  Capstone believes in building strategic partnerships and working with other firms to deliver comprehensive solutions for our clients.  By joining forces with Capstone, your firm can leverage our team's resources, expertise and experience to successfully address your client's most pressing needs.

Social Responsibility

Capstone and its employees are committed to supporting the communities where we live and work.  By following socially-responsible practices, having sound business ethics and making meaningful contributions to causes we support, Capstone demonstrates to its employees, clients and the world at large that what matters most are our values and relationships.

Minority Business Enterprise

Capstone's designation as a minority business enterprise (MBE) positions the firm to serve clients that aim to promote growth for companies traditionally denied equitable opportunities.  At the same time, our clients can be confident that they are receiving advice from professionals with skills, knowledge and experience that are second to none.
