Steve Sadler

Gloucester resident and CEO Steve Sadler to discuss the seismic shifts in capital markets at The Inn at Warner Hall November Dinner and Discussion

Entrepreneur and Allegiancy CEO Steve Sadler will be the featured speaker discussing the seismic shifts occurring in the financial world of capital markets on Nov. 18 at The Inn at Warner Hall’s popular “Dinner and Discussion” series.

The November Dinner and Discussion, called “Seismic Shifts in Capital Markets and How They Will Affect Main Street,” begins at 5:30 p.m. Sadler’s talk and discussion is at 6 p.m. and dinner is at 7 p.m.

Sadler’s firm, Allegiancy, is one of the first in the country to take advantage of new Securities and Exchange Commission regulations to raise money from private, non-accredited investors. Allegiancy has filed a $50 million offering under the new Reg A+ rules, in what’s commonly called an “IPO Lite.”

Sadler will discuss how over the past 30 to 40 years, fewer and fewer people are controlling larger pools of money inside a regulatory framework that favors this concentration of capital. Yet with the new Reg A+ rules, capital markets are changing.

Now even small business owners like the local dry cleaners or HVAC services who have ambition and savvy can harness these new rules to raise capital. The injection of capital can allow these small business owners to prosper, expand their companies, invest in equipment and provide jobs for local kids

Allegiancy, based in Richmond, is a commercial real estate asset management firm with a $1 billion portfolio that stretches across the country. Over the past year, Allegiancy has grown from a six-employee firm to 20 employees and has seen 500 percent growth.

Sadler lives in Gloucester and in his career he has focused on the capital markets. He has previously worked for regional and national financial institutions such as Wells Fargo and has managed public market securities and private placement transactions valued at more than $1 billion on behalf of TIAA-CREF, Mutual of Omaha, CS First Boston and others.

As CEO of Allegiancy, Sadler has been featured in the Wall Street Journal and other publications and his company was in the Inc. 5000 list this year.

-Dr. Larry Filer, Department Head, Economics, Old Dominion University;

-Paula Jasinski, CEO and Founder, Chesapeake Environmental Communications;

-Brent Heath, owner of Brent and Becky’s Bulbs;

-Dr. Quentin Kidd, Department Head, Political Science, Christopher Newport University;
