Our Firm

Founded in 2011 by Michael DiPerna, DiPerna Advisors is strategically located in Columbus, Ohio, serving clients throughout the Midwest. We are a structured and public finance firm that assists both private sector and public sector clients in identifying and structuring capital sources for development projects; often leveraging development incentives to strengthen the project's return on investment. Our experience combined with our dedication to our clients empowers us to deliver highly effective and cost-efficient financing solutions.


DiPerna Advisors is a registered Municipal Advisor with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board.

Access to Capital


Mr. DiPerna has built much of his career on the success of various investment grade bond funds he established in the 1980s and 1990s. There are 8 separate investment grade funds that have the ability to provide long-term, fixed rate debt for correctly structured development projects throughout the state of Ohio. DiPerna Advisors still serves as the Financial Advisor to these investment grade funds. Contact us today to learn if your project qualifies as an eligible borrower.

Financial Structuring


Every development project faces its own unique circumstances and challenges. However, each challenge represents an opportunity. Real estate economic development incentives can be leveraged and coupled with traditional financing mechanisms to deliver lower weighted average costs of capital. Don't leave money on the table. We have the ability to seek out and secure those unique capital resources to solve development challenges.

Company Results


Since its founding, DiPerna Advisors has structured and closed over 550 project transactions for approximately $3.7 billion in capital investment. We have structured and closed financings for corporate headquarters for Fortune 500 companies, manufacturing and industrial facility expansions, mixed-use development projects, senior care and assisted living facilities, multi-family housing developments, infrastructure and parking facilities, and green energy assets.
