Business
Overview

In 2009, SLR formed a dedicated asset-based lending team focused on active coverage of the financial services industry to take advantage of funding dislocations resulting from the 2008 credit crisis.

We lend on a secured basis against the loan portfolios of mid-sized commercial and specialty finance companies. Since inception, the lender finance team has originated over $1 billion in transactions to commercial finance companies who needed access to more flexible working capital financing than banks were willing to provide.

SLR's deep experience lending to commercial finance companies has had an additional benefit of identifying attractive acquisition opportunities. The SLR platform has made over a half dozen acquisitions since formalizing the business vertical.
