Financing Criteria

Abacus Finance is supported by a depository funding model, enabling us to take a longer-term investment approach than that of many similar firms. We are also unburdened by a large investment committee and their often rigid processes.

We have a deep understanding of enterprise-value lending, and a culture that enables us to custom-tailor each financing solution. This has earned us a reputation for being responsive and easy to work with. We can consider creative financing solutions including revolvers, equity co-investments and senior debt, to fit the needs of selling shareholders. Regardless of the type of investment made, we will work closely with our private-equity client’s company management to grow the business together.
