Our Purpose

We are a finance company focused on corporate lending. We specialize in making loans to companies who require more debt capital than is currently made available from traditional lenders. Because we focus on term loans, we often partner with banks in providing a complete financing package.

Our Business

Crystal Financial helps companies fund their growth and accomplish their goals. Our experienced team of professionals respond to our clients’ needs by being responsive, strategic and focused. Having invested over $20 billion in loans to over 450 borrowers, our team focuses on providing value added debt solutions to companies across all industries.
