The History Of Gulfstar.

GulfStar Group dates back to 1990 when the senior investment bankers of Rotan Mosle, the southwest middle-market subsidiary of PaineWebber, acquired its investment banking business. Our founding partners saw an opportunity to create a dominant investment banking boutique in the Southwest by focusing on a simple mission: to manage every engagement with senior investment bankers having the experience to provide the transactional leadership that enables them to consistently deliver superior results for our clients. Our unwavering commitment to this basic tenet has helped us complete more than 700 transactions in 30 years.
