Fund up to 90% of your project’s cost with our mezzanine financing. Traditional lenders typically cap the amount of funding for a project at 65–70%, leaving a sizable portion of required equity. Our flexible funding can reduce the overall amount of equity required while lowering a project’s average cost of capital.
