Is there any money left?
Presented by R.P. Field Ryder of BDC New England
How many times in the last 6 months have you heard that there’s no money available, nobody is lending, or that the credit market has dried up?
Truth is, those who say that will also tell you that the glass is half empty, but Field Rider of BDC Capital is here to tell us all that the glass is half full. There are still plenty of options for you and your clients to obtain financing for growth, expansion, acquisition and the like. Whether it’s traditional SBA financing, senior debt, junior secured and sub-debt, bridge financing, or more creative measures like Mezzanine and Private Equity, the options are there and Field will educate us on what the possibilities still are. There’s money out there, learn how to find it by joining us.
