"Richard Easton entered Wall Street M&A through the back door. Easton founded a San Francisco bank in 1988 with his own money and signature LC.


When he was ready to sell in 1999, no advisory firm was quick enough, so he sold Easton Bank in three weeks to Merrill Lynch for all cash at a 16,000% ROI.

'If you have something someone wants, offered at a fair price with total transparency, acquisitions are easy,' says Easton.

We visited Richard Easton in his new digs at 14 Wall Street, the old JP Morgan Building. M&A has a new team in town."

Mergers & Acquisitions

"Richard Easton represented me in my sale of the largest FHA Bank to the largest VA Bank.


The deal fell apart a dozen times. It seemed like everyone from greedy executives to lawyers bankers tried to blow up our deal. No one was happy. No one.


Easton never faltered. They kept their eye on the ball continuously moving downfield to close. Managing all that testosterone, a sea of angry pirates, was what held this deal together.


If you are thinking of buying or selling, Hire Easton."

Out of the depths of darkness, vaccines have injected bright light into dating. I sat down in person with Richard Easton, founder of First Date Club, to discuss his path forward.


Is FDC more fun than M&A?

Goodness yes. Dating is all my finance friends talk about, mergers and acquisitions of a different kind. (laughs)

How is FDC different than Online?

FDC is the antithesis of online dating. Imagine the difference in Payless vs Polo Ralph Lauren. FDC is bespoke. We are the top 1% of gorgeous girls and millionaire men.

What is dating’s future?

We’ve seen a huge uptick in casual dating these past 11 years. Men and women alike prefer no drama in romance. We still do serious relationships but casual romances are now 65%. More new members joined FDC so far this year than all of 2020.
