STRATEGY OVERVIEW

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 $800 million in loans and completed over 70 transactions with companies across a number of business sectors, including specialty finance & financial services, housing, farmland & agriculture and technology & media.

Metropolitan finances specific catalytic and growth events for companies and helps them scale their businesses, expand their operations and avoid equity dilution.
