About Metropolitan Partners Group
Metropolitan Partners Group is a New York-based, private credit fund manager that provides collateralized loans to small and mid-sized, non-sponsored businesses. Metropolitan’s funds deliver senior-secured, short-term funding to companies that have quality operations, assets and a strong profit opportunity, but lack efficient access to capital.
Metropolitan operates in a highly niche area of the credit markets and the businesses we lend to are going through a period of growth or transition and require flexible capital in order to achieve scale or growth milestones. Our nimble investment size and focus on non-sponsored investment opportunities allow us to lend to companies that other larger companies cannot and benefits our investors from the favorable returns and competitive dynamics available in our space.
Since its inception in 2008, Metropolitan has deployed more than $1.2 billion of capital and completed over 100 transactions with companies across a number of business sectors, including including financial services, specialty finance, business services, industrial, real estate, media & telecom and agriculture.
