Gap and Bridge Loans

Does your project have a finance gap? Or a short term financing need until long term financing is in place? We can help.

A common finance need are gap and bridge loans. Often, a bank will offer a portion of the project and the business/entrepreneur – the borrower – will have a portion. Sometimes there’s a gap between what the bank can do and the equity the borrower can provide.

In another scenario, the bank will offer the financing and the borrower has the equity but there is condition in place that leaves a short time period when the borrower needs short term financing or a bridge loan.

In both situations we can help. We offer both gap and bridge financing options.
