Our Mission to Serve the Senior Living Industry

At Piper Jaffray, we view our role as much more than bond underwriters. Our mission is to guide mission-driven not-for-profits in the development and financing of senior living communities. We do this in a number of ways, including:

  • Debt capacity analysis
  • Capital planning
  • Acquisition analysis
  • Investment consulting
  • Debt underwriting services

Too often, financial service providers only contact clients when there is a transaction involved. The Piper Jaffray senior living team has the dedication, capabilities and expertise to serve your needs throughout the lifecycle of your business.
