RIA FIRM

We’ll Get You There
For our first funding, we gave Oak Street Funding a difficult deadline to close in three weeks…most lenders would not be able to do this, but Oak Street made it happen.

– Craig Rumler

With banks, you tell them you have $150M in managed assets and they look at you like you’re speaking French.  [Oak Street] knows our industry and how to value those assets.

– Joshua Harmon

The process was easy, and the team was very flexible and responsive. We have already completed a second funding and plan to continue to work with Oak Street on future financing projects.

– Craig Rumler

It’s hard to truly understand what we, as business owners, are doing, and what I was trying to achieve from a capital infusion. So I appreciate Oak street Funding being instrumental in completing this.

– Anonymous RIA

I would absolutely recommend Oak Street Funding to a colleague if their needs align. I would push for them to talk to Oak Street. I don’t know anyone else who loans on cash flow.

– Ron Brock

Correspondence was very easy. Oak Street Funding had a very logical approach about analyzing risk. It was a great process.

– Joshua Harmon

RIA PRODUCTS

ACQUISITION
With an anticipated 15% year over year increase in deals in the RIA space*, there is no denying that acquisitions are a great way to increase firm growth beyond organic means.

Acquisition loans can be used to:

  • Purchase a book of business
  • Expand into new markets
  • Quickly increase enterprise value
  • Purchase stock or ownership interest

 

 

Whatever your acquisition plans, we’ll get you there

SUCCESSION
As RIA owners and entrepreneurs, you can ensure your legacy will continue as you enter retirement with a succession loan.

Succession loans can be used to:

  • Transition the firm to the next generation
  • Buyout an existing partner
  • Avoid tapping into firm assets

We use a phased approach for succession loans:

How it works:

  • The firm obtains the succession loan
  • Loan proceeds are used by incoming ownership to repurchase the existing owner’s stock
  • Equity is redistributed among succession owners
  • Loans can be structured as a one-time event or a multiple-year transaction

Whatever your succession plans, we’ll get you there.

WORKING CAPITAL
Your RIA firm has working capital needs throughout its life cycle, and a loan can help give you the boost you need to remain competitive.

Working capital loans can be used to:

  • Launch an new initiative
  • Invest in a marketing strategy
  • Automate client services or upgrade technology
  • Hire additional staff or train existing staff
  • Purchase a new office or update your current space

Whatever your working capital needs, we’ll get you there.

BUSINESS DEBT RESTRUCTURE
A debt restructure loan can consolidate existing loans, reduce debt obligations, clean up your balance sheet, and improve liquidity.

Debt restructure loans can be used to:

  • Pay off a bank lien or seller’s note
  • Free up revolving business lines of credit
  • Qualify for additional borrowing
  • Achieve more favorable financing

Whatever your debt restructure needs, we’ll get you there.

BREAKAWAY
Advisors can gain great experience from a wirehouse, but for you, the dream of starting a firm, the opportunity to lead, and the independence beckons. A breakaway loan can help new business owners achieve these dreams.

Breakaway loans can be used to:

  • Build new operations
  • Invest in an office, technology, and outsourced support
  • Recruit employees

Whatever your breakaway needs, we’ll get you there.
