Legacy team

Your partners

We have a shared history of working across the ABL spectrum from the largest national and international financial institutions to regional lenders and entrepreneurial startups.

We don't focus on us or what we're like—we just know how to help businesses turn their assets and ideas into powerful, attractive opportunities for liquidity, to make the most of the resources they've built up, and to accomplish their goals.
