Thanks for dropping in for some hopefully great business info and on occasion some hopefully not too sarcastic comments on the state of Business Financing in Canada and what we are doing about it !

In 2004 I founded 7 PARK AVENUE FINANCIAL. At that time I had spent all my working life, at that time - Over 30 years in Commercial credit and lending and Canadian business financing. I believe the commercial lending landscape has drastically changed in Canada. I believe a void exists for business owners and finance managers for companies, large and small who want service, creativity, and alternatives.

Every day we strive to consistently deliver business financing that you feel meets the needs of your business. If you believe as we do that financing solutions and alternatives exist for your firm we want to talk to you. Our purpose is simple: we want to deliver the best business finance solutions for your company.

Funding For Lenders In Canada: The Lender Finance Solution

Funding for lenders in Canada is all about the right finance solution for your firm. You're a specialty finance firm with the normal challenges of running a business in a good economy, much less a pandemic economy! Your funding requirements for growth are unique and your best bet is working with a firm that has special insights into your business. That ever-evolving capital need is why you want to work with 7 Park Avenue Financial.

Why Grow Your Business With Increased Lender Financing Capability?



The majority of specialty lenders in Canada who require additional lender financing tend to operate locally or at most in all of Canada. Dun and Bradstreet advise that bank lending to business has decreased in many areas and that decrease plus capital market volatility provides opportunities for those augmenting their lending needs.

The combination of responsiveness and flexibility in structuring capital transactions that work is a solid formula for success. Growing and expanding your lending power is JOB #1 at 7 Park Avenue Financial. Lending solutions to specialty finance firms covers many niche industries - You might be an asset based lender, a receivable financing/factoring firm or in smaller niches such as SR&ED loan financing.

Lender financing needs have grown dramatically with the rise of the internet - no secret there. Clients of 7 Park Avenue Financial typically have provincial or national operations but are always looking for areas to expand in. Specialty finance firms typically are non-deposit taking and not heavily regulated, allowing more freedom for growth.

Business has dramatically moved to nontraditional specialty lenders who operate outside of the mainstream of traditional bank. The concept of a faster approval turnaround, although coming with higher rates, has enabled many businesses to operate and grow outside traditional bank financing. That drives the demand for your lender financing needs.

Small businesses are increasingly turning to non-traditional lenders as mainstream financing is more difficult to secure. Payments giant PayPal has begun offering online merchants financing options that don't require credit checks and carry no periodic interest or miscellaneous fees. Applications for lease types of loans are usually handled online and offer quick turnarounds and higher interest rate

Lender finance is all about borrowing from the right financial firm or intermediary. The business model is fundamentally quite simple - borrow at a rate lower than what you earn on client loans, i.e. your yield!

Factors Affecting Lender Finance Interest Rates

The rates you will pay depends on a small number of key factors that boil down to overall credit risk, and regulatory risk, as well as the general level of competition in the lender finance market. Non-Prime lending comes with greater credit risk but offers opportunities for profit with solid infrastructure and well documented credit processes.

The opportunity, with increased financing capability to dominate your specialty niche or to take on an under-serviced area of business financing, coupled with taking advantage of the lower cost of capital now available to specialty finance firms is very appealing to CEO's and CFO's. Financing is available via term loans, revolving credit facilities, of other arrangements that might be syndicated.

What Drives The Need For Increased Financing?

Access to reasonable interest rates and overall business and consumer confidence drives the need for increased lending capital. Your firm's ability to originate business, write deals, and then service your portfolio will distinguish yourself from the pack. A smaller company will always be able to compete when they are a leader in their specialty niche, allowing them to compete with banks and very large firms who have unlimited access to capital. Dun & Bradstreet advises that in the specialty finance industry 75% of the total market is dominated by a small handful of very large players!

Also, the internet and ' online lending ' have allowed many firms to disrupt market positions held previously by larger financial corporations. That's what ' Fintech Lending ' is all about, alternative business financing that can compete effectively with traditional finance lenders. Here your business processes and the technological ability of your firm will differentiate you from the competition.

Safe to say that many other specialty finance niches are becoming more successful every day - including law firm funding, small business working capital loans, royalty finance, software financing, and numerous others.

Key Trends In The Specialty Finance Vertical

Nontradtional lenders in Canada are experiencing strong growth, hence the need for access to lender finance solutions. Business models that bypass Canadian chartered bank financing, coupled with intensive use of online marketing make for better ability to mine the potential client base. Firms that can minimize loan loss while taking advantage of the lower interest rate environment is a key to long term success in alternative financial services.

The actual needs of your firm might even be outside normal lending needs, such as the areas of acquisitions or startup. In some cases you might be a captive finance company looking to expand your parent company's growth. Unfortunately, not all companies in Canada have access to public or syndication type markets, especially if your firm is smaller. Your firm, therefore, prefers a credit solution that is more customized. Ensuring you have a strong business model and good fundamentals is key in access to lender finance solutions in good and less than good economic cycles.

The key to specialty lender is innovative and custom solutions for your client base - that is a recipe for allowing your firm to reach its financial objectives. Your goal is to access certainty in your future financing needs. It's about creating a balance between your credit facilities and your company goals around long term goals, which might even include a merger or acquisition.

Well run specialty finance firms can achieve profitability when many industries struggle in a difficult economic environment. There should never be a 100% direct correlation to everything else that is happening in the economy, pandemics included credit crises included! In fact when we talk to specialty finance firms new opportunities and new geographic opportunities abound. Your challenge is of course to be able to fund and capitalize on those opportunities.

Typically specialty finance firms seeking lender finance have solid in house credit staff and technology, as well as the ability to demonstrate they can source transactions. Naturally, everyone is always on the hunt for opportunistic acquisitions of growth opportunities.
