Robert Thompson-So

As Liquid Capital’s Chief Strategy Officer since 2013, Robert fills a major organizational role, working within the executive team and with the board of directors to help identify, plan and execute strategic initiatives across various lines of business. These may include capitalization, marketing/sales, structuring, developing new markets, M&A initiatives and more. In the financial services industry since 1992, Robert brings to Liquid Capital a background in capital markets, restructuring, mergers/acquisitions, and investment advisory—all areas that contributed to his interest in alternative investment and financing. As active as his job is, Robert is also driven to stay active in his spare time, working out, playing volleyball and rock climbing.

“I truly believe the alternative financing industry is on the cusp of becoming more the norm than the exception. Banks are re-evaluating their customer service and business models, but we’re already there with a quick and easy process to get businesses the capital they need to grow.”
