World Business Lenders Secures Credit Facility
World Business Lenders announced yesterday that it obtained a $30 million credit facility from a Cayman Islands fund created by a group of Asian banks and investors.
“The terms [of the facility] are very attractive,” said World Business Lenders CFO Tom Wills. “Single digit fixed interest rate and high advance rates.”
The new facility will be used to continue funding a loan product that is a hybrid of a business loan and a mortgage, Wills told deBanked. He said that World Business Lenders invented this product three years ago.
“Three years ago, we saw some credit weakness coming into the market and we decided to develop this real estate collateralized product,” Wills said.
World Business Lenders provides business loans that range from $5,000 to $2 million and are paid back between six and 36 months. Their average loan size is $150,000.
Wills said that the hybrid product is becoming more institutionally accepted and that they have been seeing more demand for it. Created in 2011, the company employs over 100 people at its office in Jersey City, NJ.
