There is a critical credit funding gap in our markets with very low levels of domestic credit extended to the private sector by banks and more traditional channels. With tighter banking regulations and changes in the lending landscape, the credit solutions offered are not always suitable for the particular needs of companies. Private credit solutions offered by Norsad constitute an innovative funding component (complementary to bank financing or an alternative sustainable financing solution) that can be better structured to the needs of growing mid-sized companies.
We also partner with banks, other financial institutions and investors by providing complementary financing that allows them to stay within their core lending mandates and investment policy while unlocking potential future lending capacity for their clients and positively impacting blended returns.
Norsad is the ideal partner in our markets and we believe a number of factors differentiate us as a premier alternative debt provider:
