At DP FUNDING, we are a Premium Project Funding Placement firm that works directly with established Private Capital Sources, without any intermediaries or agent chains. Our goal is to help Project Owners or Project Sponsors secure Private Debt Project Financing for large-scale projects.
We specialize in financing demanding transactions that fail to qualify for traditional bank financing and can even facilitate 100% Project Funding, subject to collateral. Project Finance is typically used for long-term infrastructure, industrial projects and public services.
Our Lender's unique Project Financing model only requires initial equity or debt capital from project owners, which serves as collateral for the Lender to provide the funding for the project. The collateral for private debt project financing can be in the form of cash, bank instruments, stocks or bonds, and remains with the Lender or custodian until the draws are completed and the project has received all required funding.
Furthermore, unlike typical 20/80 LTV models, our financial model is based on the total value of the project, similar to that of equity investors. This approach is beneficial to project owners as it may require a lower initial down payment but results in higher overall project value or IRR.
This unique financing solution is possible thanks to a strong financial position and partnerships with private family offices, sovereign wealth funds, and Lenders' own capital, which allows us to offer complete project services with a management group, the network of asset managers and advisors, and financial and advisory services.
Lender funds projects based on the desire to build relationships and emphasize rigorous underwriting. As a Premium Project Funding Placement firm, DP FUNDING is an integral part of the Lender's financing process, which comprises the loan origination, servicing, and debt and equity processing for our clients.
As a key player in the funding process, DP FUNDING values relationships, integrity, confidentiality, and professionalism. We are here to guide you through every step of this complex funding process and help you secure the necessary funding for your project. With our expertise and commitment to excellence, we can help turn your project goals into a successful reality. Contact us today to learn more.
