Metropolitan Partners Group specializes in financing capital-intensive small and mid-sized businesses in the U.S. that often have not had an institutional investor, are going through a period of growth, and require additional capital in order to achieve scale. The loans we provide of $5 million to $25 million, which are typically senior-secured and have maturities of 12 to 36 months, go to fundamentally sound businesses and are structured to minimize equity dilution.
Over the last nine years, we have deployed more than $550 million of capital across more than 55 transactions. We focus on a number of business sectors including specialty finance, local infrastructure, telecom, heavy equipment, niche manufacturing and automation.
Our strategy includes the following elements:
Highly Structured Investment solutions: we invest time and experience to understand each company’s business and strategic goals in order to tailor a customized capital solution through the skillful application of operating expertise, asset valuation and deal structuring.
Relationship-based Approach: we operate in an underserved segment of the capital markets, where fundamentally strong companies with unique, high-quality assets cannot access capital via traditional lenders or asset managers. We are empathetic to the needs of management and the business, taking the time to understand the fundamentals of the opportunity and offering value-added resources alongside our capital to find the most effective path to growth.
Operating Focus: Our platform includes significant operating expertise that helps portfolio companies develop their infrastructure and strategy, optimizing the business and accelerating value creation.
