Preferred Capital

Asset-based lending for consumer and auto finance companies

We provide a wide range of senior secured loans and lines of credit to independently owned, publicly traded, and bank owned consumer, retail, and auto finance companies to support their portfolios and help them grow their businesses. Our credit facilities start at $10 million with terms of one to five years.

  • Revolving lines of credit. These products provide the lending capacity you need to support the financing of consumer personal, retail, and auto loans. Their flexibility can accommodate the seasonal nature of your portfolio, and they are available as either senior secured notes or through a syndicated bank group.
  • Conduit facilities. Term loans secured by a specific pool of assets with an amortization schedule that matches the cash flow of the collateral. These can be structured to accommodate a single transaction, or to be periodically replenished with new collateral.
  • Working capital lines of credit. Credit facilities that satisfy the permanent funding many consumer finance companies need.
  • Term note facilities. Fixed-term notes that closely match the weighted average maturity of the underlying collateral.
  • Standby letters of credit. A facility that is secured by specific underlying collateral to satisfy a commercial landlord, insurance provider, or warranty company requirement.
