We provide senior-secured loans to small and mid-sized companies across a variety of sectors throughout the U.S. Our borrowers are fundamentally strong, but are not typically served by traditional asset managers or lenders. We also selectively provide asset-backed, second-lien loans to borrowers on a case-by-case basis.
Over the last ten years, we have deployed more than $600 million in loans and completed over 60 transactions with companies across a number of business sectors, including financial services, specialty finance, local infrastructure, telecom, heavy equipment, niche manufacturing and automation.
Metropolitan finances specific catalytic and growth events for companies and helps them scale their businesses, expand their operations and avoid equity dilution.
