Triton Pacific Capital Partners said Wednesday that Brian Buehler was named a partner and will served as president of Triton Pacific Securities, the firm’s captive broker-dealer.
LOS ANGELES, CA–(Marketwired – Jul 1, 2015) – Triton Pacific Capital Partners, a leading sponsor of private equity alternative investment programs, including Triton Pacific Investment Corporation (TPIC), a $300 million business development company (BDC), today announced that Brian D. Buehler has been named partner and will serve as president of Triton Pacific Securities, the firm’s captive broker-dealer.
“We are excited to welcome Brian as a partner in our private equity firm and president of our broker-dealer at a time of growth and opportunity for Triton Pacific affiliated entities,” said Craig Faggen, chairman and CEO of Triton Pacific. “Brian’s experience, expertise and industry knowledge will play a significant role in our firm’s success and ultimately in the success of our investors as well.”
In his new role, Buehler will lead the firm’s capital markets group to develop and deliver a platform of innovative products and value-added services to the market. Buehler’s responsibilities will include overseeing the firm’s capital strategy as well as managing the operations of the broker-dealer.
Buehler has 20 years of experience in raising capital and investing in various financial services and commercial real estate sectors. He was instrumental in raising capital for seven public and private investment offerings representing more than $1 billion of capital raised, including Strategic Storage REITs I & II, SmartStop Self Storage, Strategic Storage Trust II, Strategic Storage Growth Trust, and Whitestone REIT. Additionally, Buehler has led numerous private investment offerings structured as LLCs, LPs, debentures, private equity investments and other programs.
Buehler has also built and managed high-performance distribution teams during the past 15 years, and has been called upon to re-organize management and sales teams to achieve greater efficiency and profitability. He has built significant distribution within the Independent Broker-Dealer, RIA, and family office channels where he has established deep relationships.
“I look forward to the opportunity to expand Triton Pacific’s footprint with financial advisers at what is a very opportune time for investors. Generally speaking, publicly traded growth stocks and mutual funds are at all-time highs, and the same appears to be true in the real estate market,” Buehler said. “Triton Pacific’s private equity fund is positioned as an alternative to these markets. TPIC’s strategy is designed to generate the potential for attractive returns as many advisers and their clients look to stay growth-centric but reallocate out of their traded positions at what may be the top of the market.”
“Brian will be a real asset for Triton Pacific as it continues to build talent and develop joint ventures and partnerships to advance market share and expand confidence in target markets,” Faggen noted.
Buehler co-chaired the ADISA (fka REISA / fka TICA) Ethics and Standards committee, which authored both the ACE Awards and Code of Standard and Ethics. He holds FINRA Series 7 and 63 licenses, and CA Insurance Life, Health, Property and Casualty licenses. Buehler is a graduate of Chapman University.
