  • Refinancings
  • Securitizations

  • Access to a broader spectrum of investors improves both cost of funds and diversity of funding sources.
  • Direct negotiation between borrower and lender (led by Loofbourrow) permits highly tailored and flexible solutions.
  • The pricing is set early in the process, allowing more confidence in choosing options.
  • Since private placements are sold only to a limited number of institutional investors, we have the ability to renegotiate agreements if conditions warrant.
  • Legal, printing, and underwriting costs are lower.
  • Publicity level can be controlled: from very public to highly discreet.
