Our clients span the breadth of the sector from commercial aerospace manufacturers to cyber security and cyber operations, defense technology companies, government and intelligence contractors, and private sector security firms.

We see clients looking for an all-in-one advisor -- corporate strategist, military and security expert, and investment banker. We're that and more. Headwaters prides itself in having industry specialists who understand commercial aerospace, the geopolitical-military environment, know how to translate government contracting to capital providers, and partner with investors and large-to-small cap companies to optimize value in a competitive market.  Our 80-plus years of collective industry experience give our clients the requisite confidence to pursue creative solutions that maximize shareholder value over the long-term.
