Partnering to provide responsive and creative financing solutions to the middle market

 

Northlight is an established corporate lender and asset-based investor managing corporate loans, real estate and private equity investments. We seek to opportunistically identify strong risk-adjusted investment alternatives across industry lines.

The team has provided capital solutions to companies in the middle market and sub-investment grade space for more than 3 decades through investments at Northlight as well as prior activity at GE Capital, Heller Financial, and Gilman Financial.  We seek to invest in overlooked, undervalued and underserved markets.

 

The Firm’s investment approach is disciplined, time-tested and creative in approaching complex situations, specialized situations, and hard to value business enterprise.
