Short-term (bridge) financing
Bridge financing addresses a borrower’s short-term needs, usually three months to three years. Some borrowers choose bridge financing when they need flexibility to decide about the future of an asset (i.e. contemplating a sale, impending change
in ownership structure or operational planning) or time to coordinate a standard financing option. Bridge financing typically includes floating interest rates and usually allows some form of early prepayment. Consistent cash flows and strong operational
histories are key considerations for this type of financing.
