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 nine 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.

Using a variety of investment structures, Metropolitan finances specific catalytic and growth events for companies and helps them scale their businesses, expand their operations and avoid equity dilution.
