Press release: Private Debt Firm with Cannabis Focus Launches Marketing Effort

accomplished in private equity and legal fields, founders retain havener capital partners

[Arlington, VA] Private debt boutique Altmore Capital Investment Management LLC (“Altmore”), a leading source for cannabis capital, and third-party sales and marketing agency Havener Capital Partners (“Havener”) are excited to announce a marketing partnership. 

Longtime friends Steven Ham and Patrick Kim founded Altmore in 2017, not long after Ham first learned about the investment potential in the cannabis space. The partners credit the firm’s unique longevity in the industry to their thoughtfulness, professionalism, and collaborative approach for investors and borrowers alike.

Prior to Altmore, Ham had a lengthy career in private equity, including a stint with Carlyle, and also helped start a nanotech company. Kim spent more than a decade as an attorney with Williams & Connolly, the prestigious litigation firm based in Washington, DC. They originally positioned Altmore as a cannabis-related real estate investment firm, but when a client asked about a different approach to a long-term loan, they shifted to crafting shorter-term, asset-backed loans that better fit the industry.

On the investor side, the roughly $30 billion and growing cannabis industry is rapidly maturing but remains complex, with high growth prospects but considerable volatility. Furthermore, many early investors in the space were hurt by excessively complicated deals or overly ambitious plans. Alternatively, Altmore has developed a reputation as a steady hand in cannabis financing while delivering substantial risk-adjusted returns.


“We know many investors are apprehensive about committing funds to the cannabis industry, but we believe part of our role is educating them about the potential opportunities,” said Ham. “By partnering with Havener Capital, which has worked with a wide assortment of firms, we believe we’ll demystify the space and provide investors with a solid introduction to an industry with significant growth prospects."


Havener brings a wealth of experience and talent to help Altmore with branding, storytelling, and leading-edge digital marketing. Founder and CEO Stacy Havener believes the partnership represents an exciting opportunity for both organizations and aligns with Havener’s mission of connecting differentiated boutiques with the early-adopter RIA community that embraces them:


“Altmore’s professional and patient approach to private credit in an industry with many unknowns and variables stands out, as does their longevity in the cannabis space,” said Havener. “Steven and Patrick have established a great foundation that we’re excited to build upon as we partner with their firm to ease some of the stigma around the investment opportunities in cannabis.”
