What do you do? Cardinal Capital exists to assist businesses in their quest for funds. We help our clients define the who, what, when, where and how much and then introduce them to the sources that meet those needs.
What products do you represent? We don’t represent lenders, we represent borrowers. We have no preconceived products, no limitations on the type and size of requests, no geographical limitations. Whatever our clients are looking for, we will help them find.
How long does it take to close a loan? Our quickest loan was 90 minutes. Our longest was over 2 years. The time to close depends on the who, what, when, where and how much from both the borrower and lender sides of each transaction.
How can my bank or business work with you? We start with an initial meeting to determine needs. We go into the initial meeting looking for broad needs and narrow the focus down to deliverables and goals. This often leads to unrealized opportunities.
Do you compete with commercial lenders? Not at all. We work with them to solve our clients’ problems.
How do you help banks with clients? Not all clients are a good fit all the time. When a lender needs a client to move all or part of their relationship, we can assist both sides with the transition.
