Billboard Announcing Known Growth in Times Square on NASDAQ building March 14th, 2024.

Known, the pioneering financial services and asset management platform is announcing the launch of its investment bank, Known Growth. 

The investment banking team, headquartered in New York City, will also have team members on the West Coast and Midwest, and will be led by Valerie Red-Horse Mohl, a veteran investment banker and securities principal with over 25 years of experience. Known Growth deploys capital to identify, acquire and scale underrepresented founders and their businesses. They specialize in blended capital models to offer optimal outcomes for founders and investors.  

A departure from other investment banks, Known Growth builds solutions that are designed to seek positive financial outcomes with founder ownership and interests in mind. 

We service our clients by prudently providing financing to mid-market companies as well as financial advice, and products and services that deliver excellence first. Part of how we do that is by investing in undervalued sectors. Chief among those are traditionally under-capitalized founders, and other underutilized sectors that are ripe for investment and growth. Known Growth offers its clients the opportunity to generate robust returns while closing the nation’s wealth gaps.” -Valerie Red-Horse Mohl 

Known has rapidly emerged as a driving force in the financial world, focusing on deploying, structuring, and shifting capital in ways that are healthy for the planet and the people on it. 

Known’s leadership team, comprised of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and Asian-American co-founders, is committed to creating transformative change in the financial sector. They are supported by a team of accomplished financial professionals, seasoned investors, and deeply experienced business leaders who share their vision for equitable and sustainable growth.
