Why Antares

Consistent Face to the Market

Our senior leadership team — backed by an expert group of dedicated industry professionals — has worked together and helped our clients succeed for more than 20 years.

“We appreciate the fact that Antares maintains a significant hold position in the loans it syndicates. This demonstrates their strong emphasis on credit quality and creates better alignment of interest across the entire syndicate.”

Proven Track Record

We provide more capital solutions and close more transactions for middle-market sponsors than anyone else.2  We do it year after year. That’s why Mergers & Acquisitions calls us “a shining example of those who thrive even in uncertain conditions.”

“I’ve worked with the Antares team for 17 years and have always been impressed by the care they take in understanding the dynamics of our business. They act with a sense of urgency and as a collaborative partner to help ensure our success. It’s nice to know they have our back.”

Enduring Relationships

We enjoy an unparalleled level of repeat business with our sponsors, and are proud of our long-standing relationships. Our clients trust us because we deliver predictably and reliably, and are deeply committed to growing their businesses.

“Antares is always one of our first options to lead because of our long-term relationship, the trust we have in them and the hold sizes that they bring to the table.”

Ongoing Support

After closing the initial transaction, we continue to support our clients for the entire life of a loan. We have the breadth of expertise our clients can rely on over the long haul, even during uncertain times.

“Antares has been a flexible and supportive partner as we’ve executed on a very aggressive expansion strategy over the last several years. Their understanding of our business and our financing needs has been a key contributor to our growth.”
