We seeks always to be responsive to the needs of all groups to be accurate in their communication.

In those instances where the media want to interview members of the staff, the media should first contact us at (760) 776-5749. Because Capital Finance is a private company, located on private property; members of the media may not come onto the premises to photograph, record, or interview staff and guests without the permission and assistance of the company. This policy helps us conduct our business and research mission in an orderly and effective manner and protects the rights and needs of our clients, staff, and guests.
