OSP has invested in over 100 banks nationwide.

Since its founding in 2010, O’Brien-Staley Partners has emerged as a partner of choice for banks and bank holding companies (BHCs).  The firm has made over 80 minority equity investments in privately-held banks or BHCs and participated in over 20 senior or subordinated loans to BHCs.

Most O’Brien-Staley Partners investments are between $5 million and $20 million, but the firm will seriously consider either larger or smaller transactions with well-regarded counterparties, in favorable geographies.

O’Brien-Staley Partners has been a reliable counterparty for banks and BHCs wanting to divest “unloved” credit exposures including discontinued business lines, troubled debt restructurings (TDRs) and nonperforming C&I or CRE loans.  The firm has a particular knack for credits that are too complex or sensitive for traditional loan buyers, such as

  • Bank Stock Loans
  • Church or Nonprofit Loans
  • Campus Housing Credits
  • Rolling Stock or Equipment Leases
  • FDIC Loss-Share Termination
  • NMTC Tax Credit Termination
  • Aviation or Marine Credits
  • Spanish Language Credits
