We’re proud of our deep, longstanding relationships with private equity sponsors and their portfolio companies.
We’ve closed deals with more than 350 firms over the past 25+ years, and we’re the lender of choice for most of our clients today. They trust us to provide them with quick, honest feedback at the front end, while supporting their transactions over the long term.
Culture of Commitment
We become an extension of your team and a trusted partner who focuses squarely on your needs.
We don’t merely arrange a loan and sell pieces of it to other investors; rather, we hold a meaningful amount on our own balance sheet over the long term. In fact, we’re typically the largest investor in the companies we fund. This immersion in our clients’ businesses speaks to the Antares culture of commitment.
We’re focused on our clients’ success, having earned a reputation for flexibility and ease of doing business.
We place a premium on speed, simplicity and efficiency. We know our clients place their reputations on the line in every transaction they do, and we’re committed to their success. After all, we only succeed when our clients do.
After the initial transaction, we continue to support you over the entire life of the loan.
Our experience shows that while many lenders can close a transaction, few have the experience, capability and commitment to provide support over the entire life cycle of a deal – including working together through the unexpected. But we do. You can count on us for the long haul.
