We provide Cryptocurrency Financing or crypto backed loans for people holding cryptocurrency either as a long term investment or short term investment horizons. A cryptocurrency can be easily defined as a digital currency. However, the concept behind the value and security of cryptocurrency is quite abstract and esoteric. Some people are confused about what makes cryptocurrency valuable and what makes it efficient as a means of storing and transferring value. Cryptocurrencies are also sometimes known as “altcoins” – short for alternative coins. The most famous of all cryptocurrencies is Bitcoin, although there are many new contenders to the market, known as altcoins. We do the complicated filing and processing for you, and we can help support you on your way to success with our competitively priced cryptocurrency lending and terms. Our asset lending capital features highly competitive interest based on the present prime rates. Plus, our loans extend anywhere from 3 months to 10 years, which is an ideal amount of time for many individuals seeking a good amount of capital and a reasonable amount of time to make payments on their loans.
Bank Guarantee Financing
A Bank Guarantee (BG) is very similar to a Letter Of Credit (LC) as they both are used for many types of business transactions (financial or performance based). The real difference between the two is that a Letter Of Credit (LC) ensures that a business transaction goes as planned, whereas a Bank Guarantee (BG) reduces losses if a business transaction doesn’t go as planned. A Bank Guarantee (BG) guarantees a certain sum to the beneficiary if the opposing party doesn’t fulfill its specific obligations under their agreed upon contract. Bank Guarantees (BG) ensure both sides in a contractual agreement from credit risk. A construction company and its steel beam supplier may enter into a contractual agreement to build a new complex. Both sides might have to issue Bank Guarantees (BG) in order to prove their credit-worthiness to each other.

Acquisition financing is the way in which a company funds a merger or a company acquisition. A business acquisition loan is a loan given to a company for the specific purpose of acquiring another company or asset; it is a common way of financing an acquisition. There are often restrictions that accompany these loans, such as time limits. The lender also determines the amount of the loan and who is eligible for the loan.Acquisition funding is necessary when a business is looking to grow by purchasing another business and needs to raise funds to complete the transaction. The business finance market has changed enormously in the last few tumultuous years.

Direct Business Financing
Direct lending is an avenue for companies like yours to access capital as an alternative to the syndicated loans or senior floating-rate capital traditionally provided by banks. Direct lending loans are provided by “non-bank” lenders, such as institutional investors. Direct lending loans are primarily first lien, senior secured floating-rate loans, but can also be second lien, revolvers, or accordion/delayed-draw facilities. They have flexible amortisation profiles and final maturities that usually range from 5 to 6 years. The direct lending market has become a permanent source of capital for borrowers. It is largely a leveraged buyout-driven, sponsor-led market, but relies on private placement-style credit and terms underwriting. Our lenders target the middle market, which is typically defined as companies with EBITDA of $10 to $50 million. Our regional office network enables companies to access growth capital globally, across the U.S., Canada, UK, and Europe.
Senior Loan Financing
Companies have varying objectives for using senior debt loans. Senior term debts are used to raise capital for specific, and often temporary objectives such as acquisitions, buyouts, refinancing, recapitalization’s or fixed asset purchases, which will require a huge lump sum. Senior term debt will spread these expenses, which are fairly large, over several years and will be matched by the cash flows the company will generate, so the company can make timely payments. Some senior loans only require paying the interest, where the initial principal is paid as a balloon payment at the end of the loan term. The difference is that in a bullet payment, the repayment may contain both interest and principal amounts. Senior lending products are products provided mainly by non bank lenders and are secured as a first charge against the commercial property owned by the company or individual. The senior loan strategy seeks to achieve an attractive total return while maintaining a focus on preserving principal and avoiding defaults.
Mezzanine finance is a capital resource that sits between (less risky) senior debt and (higher risk) equity that has both debt and equity features. Companies use mezzanine lending to achieve goals that require capital beyond what senior lenders will extend. When companies have maximised their senior debt borrowing capacity or seek to preserve future senior debt capacity and need additional capital to pursue growth opportunities (acquisitions, large capital programs, etc.), or for shareholder activity (distributions, shareholder buyout, etc.) they are typically left with two options: raise outside equity or utilise mezzanine financing. Mezzanine financing can be viewed as either expensive (higher coupon) debt or cheap (less dilutive) equity, as mezzanine carries a higher interest rate than the senior debt that companies would obtain through their banks (reflecting greater risk than senior debt), but is substantially less expensive than equity in terms of overall cost of capital. More specifically, mezzanine financing is less dilutive than raising additional equity to satisfy a capital need, and ultimately allows existing owners to maintain control. Mezzanine is patient capital that enables companies to pursue opportunities from a long-term strategic approach, which may not have seemed feasible otherwise.
