Our complementary solution

Through our expertise and experience in multiple industries, we provide liquidity to Canadian financial institutions throughout economic cycles. Our Funding Platform for Independent Lenders (F-PIL), in partnership with our private sector partner, assists in the growth of independent finance companies that are largely underserved in the market. Through our platform, we offer securitization, secured and structured loans for:

  1. Small and medium-sized financial institutions that lend to or assist commercial entities
  2. Underlying assets/securities that are primarily equipment, vehicle/fleet leases or loans
  3. Inventory financing programs
  4. Companies with a demonstrable ability to grow their operations

Through F-PIL, companies can access funding with scalable financial terms for more access to financing and potentially more favourable funding costs. These companies can be more competitive on pricing with SMEs.
