Brian Wishneff & Associates understands the importance of selecting the right tax credit investor for your historic rehabilitation project.  Given that investors are partners, we believe that while developers certainly want to maximize their returns, they also want to find a partner that they can trust.  BW&A, a tax credit consulting and syndication firm founded in 1995, is just such a partner.  We believe that strong positive relationships are imperative given the niche industry that is the tax credit investment marketplace.   We approach each investment as we are not only forming a strong partnership for the current project but hopefully for other future projects.  We recognize the need for a smooth efficient closing process that minimizes transaction costs while maximizing net benefit to your project.

BW&A is also a developer of tax credit projects.  As such we are uniquely positioned to truly appreciate the considerations of the developer in identifying, selecting and closing with a  tax credit investor.  We use this experience as a developer when serving as syndicator in other tax credit projects.  BW&A prides itself on the client focused approach we take to syndication and many of our development partners are repeat clients.  We know that a cookie cutter solution doesn’t apply to tax credit syndication and the facts of each project are unique.  Our flexible approach, starting with open negotiation and a clear, straightforward term sheet, identifies exactly how BW&A’s investment will impact the project and makes clear the expectations of the developer once the closing process has started.

BW&A works with projects of all sizes, use and geography.  We are able to do this because we represent a wide array of investors with different appetites for tax credit investments.
