Benefits and features of our service

Tailored borrowing

NAV financing has a wide range of applications, such as funding asset growth initiatives, bridging to future fundraising, enabling hedging options, or funding follow on capital for continuation vehicles.

Multiple level deployment

It´s possible to raise capital at the fund level, at the portfolio company level, or at a HoldCo level, as appropriate to your goals.

Accommodating structure

NAV lending can be blended with preferred equity to achieve a lower cost of capital.
