Reliant Funding Shifts Gears
Reliant Funding has begun a sale of its portfolio, deBanked has learned, a move complemented by some material adjustments internally. For example, posts on social media have revealed that numerous members of Reliant’s staff are suddenly seeking new employment.
A source familiar with events taking place inside the company confirmed that Reliant is indeed right-sizing its team and that funding on balance sheet has paused. Due to its ability to get deals funded off balance sheet, however, January was actually the company’s strongest month ever for originations.
Market conditions and the rapid rise of interest rates may be related to the sudden shift at Reliant, which has been in operation since late 2008. At the time the Federal Funds Rate had dropped to 0% and it had remained exceptionally low until recently.Last modified: February 3, 2023
