Freeport was created to build lasting partnerships with our private equity clients. Our processes and procedures are designed to build long-term relationships that endure changing market conditions.


The Freeport approval process is streamlined and designed to provide a high-degree of consistency to our private equity clients. Each transaction received from our clients is reviewed by the Freeport Investment Committee within 72 hours of receipt of transaction materials. Our goal is to provide clear feedback, with key diligence items identified, within this timeframe. The investment committee that reviews the initial transaction is the same team that participates in the final approval discussion. As a result, our clients can expect consistent feedback and streamlined results.


Freeport uses its balance sheet to fully underwrite transactions and has provided post close syndications for transactions larger than $300 million. When we choose to underwrite transactions, we limit the amount of syndication flex required and can syndicate the transaction post-close if our client prefers. Freeport can also hold the largest portion of any lender’s loan in the bank group. We are an asset management business rather than a syndication group focused on generating fee income.
