About Us

Rocklyn Capital Advisors, LLC is a boutique investment bank primarily focused on sourcing loans for financial institutions and partnering with banks to provide their middle market clients with private capital solutions.

As former bankers, we understand the need to grow a profitable and sound loan portfolio. Rocklyn works with lenders to facilitate buying / selling whole-loans to build outstandings and manage risk. We have established relationships with the nation’s top loan syndication desks and offer our clients the ability to commit to newly created syndicated commercial & industrial loans. For non-performing assets, Rocklyn offers a customized loan disposition strategy that includes positioning the asset for sale and marketing the asset to local and national buyers through our competitive on-line process.

Involved parties in past placements include: Bank of America, Bank of Eastern Oregon, Banner Bank, Barclays, Beneficial State Bank, Capital Pacific Bank, Citibank, Clatsop County Bank, Columbia State Bank, GE Capital, Gilmore Bank, Great Southern Bank, Lyons National Bank, JP Morgan, Kaiser Federal Bank, Lewis & Clark Bank, Northwest Bank, Continental Bank, Pacific Rim Bank, Silvergate Bank, Summit Bank, U.S. Bank, Wells Fargo, Zions Bank.

Rocklyn also partners with community and regional banks to provide their middle market clients with capital solutions that are not limited to a bank’s balance sheet. Regulated banks are often restricted from providing their best customers with the capital needed for leveraged acquisitions, recapitalizations, LBO’s, MBO’s, and ESOPs. Offering senior long-term fixed rate debt also challenges a bank’s balance sheet. Rocklyn works with bank partners to structure a joint comprehensive financing solution to meet the needs of their middle market clients. Forms of capital include asset-based, cash flow, unitranche, second lien, mezzanine and preferred equity.



Rocklyn Capital is led by founder Bob Krueger, a former bank executive with over 30 years of combined commercial banking, leveraged finance and debt capital market advisory experience. With prior positions at U.S. Bank, Piper Jaffray and Capital Pacific Bank, all based in the Pacific Northwest, Krueger has 20+ years of developed relationships with national, regional and northwest based banks, capital providers and institutions.
