Financing a Golden Opportunity
Kathleen, age 57
Manager of a private equity fund
Personal net worth: $8 million
In 2006, a colleague came to me with a very attractive business investment opportunity that I did not want to pass up. Unfortunately, the timing was
awful. I really just couldn’t free up the $3 million equity requirement right then and there.
As you might imagine, someone in my line of work knows a lot of people in the banking industry. So why did I choose BMO Private Bank for this
particular deal? Two reasons: First, my private banker offered a loan structure and terms that made the most sense for my particular circumstances.
Second, BMO allowed me to borrow against blended collateral that included some non-traditional components. That is exactly the kind of
responsiveness, expertise and flexibility I look for in any business relationship.
My private banker at BMO understood my situation immediately and acted quickly to move things forward. First, he gave me a letter of credit to use as
a deposit in lieu of cash. Then he put together a set of customized loans for the $3 million I needed, secured by a rapidly appreciating asset I
had—one I hadn’t even considered until my private banker suggested it.
I am happy to report that the business opportunity turned out to be an even bigger success than my colleague thought it would be. And I am
enormously pleased that the experts at BMO Private Bank had the creativity, experience and foresight I needed to get in on that opportunity.
