Seward & Kissel’s Fund Finance Group – “Meet the Fund Banker” Series
The goal of this series is to highlight those lenders who are leaning in to the fund finance space and actively looking to serve as financing partners. In order to facilitate connections between funds and potential lenders and provide clarity around the “new normal” of fund finance, this series will introduce the primary people standing behind the new market leaders and provide color on what those lenders look for in potential clients. Each installment of the series will feature a Q&A with the individual banker who is heading up the lender’s fund finance business.
We hope that this series is a helpful resource for all participants in the fund finance industry. Readers should feel free to reach out to the bankers who are being featured for more information or to Jeff Berman (212-574-1232), Steven Starr (212-574-1405) or Robert Wood (212-574-1244) for any assistance with their fund financing needs.
