Debt / Equity Structured Options

For high LTV/LTC leveraged situations, Northwind also provides a variety of debt/equity structured financing solutions. Most projects with loan amounts over 75% LTV will require a debt/equity structure. Equity requirement varies based upon evaluated underwriting risk, and comes with a 5-year buyout option for sponsor (with a pre-determined formula). Equity is based upon loan amount – not value, for borrowers protection! We highly value the PEOPLE that are in these partnerships, so good quality experienced sponsors are a must…
