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.

Lender Finance - Lending Power For Changing Needs

Funding For Lenders - Lender Loans Financing Solutions 


Like most firms with a specific financial offering to your clients, you want to ensure you have a customized lender finance solution to your ongoing capital needs. The ability to grow a financial firm as in  either the consumer or commercial space while maintaining flexibility is Job 1!

While  lending by banks, such as our Canadian chartered banks or traditional insurance companies might be the obvious choice for low-cost capital, numerous factors might prohibit your firm from accessing bank credit facilities.  The 7 Park Avenue Financial team will ensure a solid understanding of your current portfolio and future needs - in a business that is all about liquidity, we will take the time to understand your product offering and business model around its assets/loan receivables

Specialty Finance / loan provider opportunity  has never changed so fast and so quickly when it comes to who is a lender in these times  - Whether it's a global financial crisis or a Pandemic or changing technologies finance companies are constantly challenged - they want flexibility in capital and interest rates commensurate with their overall credit quality. Companies such as your want to unlock portfolio value, maximize liquidity, and grow!



Typical funding needs revolve around either a revolving operating facility or a term loan structure - what makes sense for your firm .. or is it time to change and re-evaluate your current funding model. In some cases, it might be taking our current private investors or creating a partial liquidity event for owner/ owners.  In all cases, it's the collateral value of the present and future portfolio that will drive your funding capability.




The ability to demonstrate collateral value in our portfolio will maximize funding eligibility. Monetizing current facilities allows for additional funding to allow the portfolio to grow via your current and prospective marketing strategies.




Over a period of time  2 major classes of finance companies have emerged in the Canadian landscape. We can broadly characterize them as ' Fintech' or Traditional. Which one is your firm? No doubt both models employ and capitalize on numerous online marketing activities.


In some cases, management might be considering an equity investment  - in other cases, a more traditional term loan structure that has defined minimum drawdown of approved facilities and repayment structure to your business model and cash inflows.


The other major alternative to a term loan structure is revolving facilities. The revolving facility's appeal is the ' pay for what you use ' business model as you generate loan growth knowing you can increase profitability with the confidence of a line of credit backing loan growth in your facility - versus fixed-term loan payments on a senior loan scenario.  Whatever model you chose will allow your company to grown and maintain portfolio equity.




The aforementioned equity option, by its nature, is a more costly  form of business capital, thereby giving up your firm's stake in future profits as the portfolio grows or matures. Business financing is a constant balancing risk, though, and equity will always enhance traditional borrowing power. Sources of funding can best be summarized as combinations of owner equity/commercial finance facilities from non-banks or traditional bank funding.

In some cases your firm may be looking to merge with or acquire another firm , or you may be starting a finance business and looking for both a working capital component as well as loan book funding.



In the current low rate environment of the North American, even global economy, the offering of all-time fixed low-interest rates has tremendous appeal to commercial borrowers seeking lender finance solutions. That ability to still pick either a revolver or loan provides maximum repayment flexibility.



The explosion in business and consumer financing services for Canadian borrowers as well as the partial exit of the ' bank lender '  has created  a broad competing playing field for :


Short Term Working Captial Loans

Merchant Advance

Accounts Receivable / Factoring

Refundable Tax Credits ( SR&ED/Film/Mining)

Equipment Financing

Asset Based Lending

Non franchise Automotive

Online / Peer To Peer / prime and subprime credit quality

SAAS / Recurring Revenue

Strata/Condo Financing

Captive Retail Finance

Other ' Esoteric '  Specialty Finance Providers!
