New West Partners specializes in helping cannabis issuers more effectively access the U.S. Capital markets and more specifically quality U.S. retail and institutional investors throughout the country. The service targets relevant independent wealth advisors, registered investment advisors and smaller institutions that run anywhere between 50-500 million and are off the radar of Wall St. and Bay St. firms. Geographically, we focus on markets that are underserviced by the brokerage community.

These markets include but are not limited to the following:
  • San Francisco
  • Los Angeles
  • Orange County
  • Seattle
  • Atlanta
  • Miami
The combined domain expertise of New West Summit, 49 North LLC and Seymour Asset Management in developing New West Partners is unparalleled for issuers looking to satisfy their financing needs as well as broaden their shareholder base within the United States.
