FAST, EFFICIENT, SUPPORTIVE CAPITAL

There are no layers of bureaucracy for the borrower to wade through for a credit decision and funding. We have a concentrated team of seasoned credit professionals who, based on experience, can quickly assess situations, structure transactions and compress the process of diligence and documentation. Our investment professionals are also portfolio managers, so borrowers' primary point of contact remains the same throughout the life of the loan.

During the entire process, from our initial conversations with a prospect to the funding of a loan, we work hand-in-hand with customers to ensure we are customizing our financing solutions. Our diligence work – qualitative business review, collateral audits, appraisals, legal documentation – is typically completed within a streamlined six-week timeframe. We lead every process with open and consistent communication so that everyone has updated information in real-time as we proceed towards the closing.

Once a loan is closed and funded, Stonegate maintains close relationships with our customers. We view each loan as a partnership. We have experienced the highs and lows of many businesses and understand how to work with borrowers to help them manage through these cycles. We make sure reporting requirements are thorough yet nimble, and that we are accurately understanding the daily, weekly, or monthly funding requirements of our borrowers. Our primary goal is to enable our customers to focus on what’s most important – having the flexibility and freedom to run their business successfully on a day-to-day basis.
