It is fast and nimble, quick to look into potential investment opportunities and ready to adapt and adjust when market conditions change. But the firm is also deliberate in its approach — carefully analyzing deals, studying financials, and anticipating the potential risks and rewards associated with each opportunity.
And Mercury is small, at least compared to large national investment firms. But it has developed an impressive network of trusted partners and affiliates that enable it to pursue and capitalize on larger-scale opportunities.
While the planet is 4.6 billion years old, Mercury Investment Management traces its roots back to 2002.
That’s when Earl Blankenship made the final move from simply putting deals together to building his own investment firm.
Earl established Mercury after a successful run as an international consultant, accountant, and real estate investor. His experience was largely rooted in the real estate business, where he grew Interstate Realty Corp. into the largest property management and brokerage firm in the Mid-South. The company was later sold to CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services and investment firm.
For 20 years, Mercury Investment Management has been investing in people and projects with promise. Its investments include a large number of real estate projects and business opportunities, including projects built from the ground up and established ventures looking to take a step forward.
“People want to do business with people they like and trust.”
