Working Capital

Unlike a traditional bank that provides small business loans and commercial loans to all types of businesses, Oak Street Funding makes loans exclusively to insurance agents and brokers. We have provided loans to insurance agents, brokers and MGAs worth hundreds of millions of dollars. As a result, we have a great understanding of the insurance marketplace and insurance agencies and can quickly evaluate and structure agency loans.

Oak Street Funding is a direct lender and handles its loan processing in-house. This means your business loan is never sold to another finance company or bank. We own and manage the loan throughout its lifecycle and you only deal with us. For more information, see answers to our frequently asked questions.

Choosing Fixed- or Variable-Rate Business Financing

Choosing Fixed- or Variable-Rate Business Financing

Traditionally, commercial borrowers have had limited options in the type of financing available to meet their business needs. Whether the purpose was for business growth or simply boosting working capital, many lenders have not tailored their financial products to borrower’s requirements. For borrowers, that usually meant variable rates that were based off of benchmark indices such as the prime rate. Unfortunately, the inherent volatility of those indices often made it difficult to ensure cash flows are sufficient to repay your obligations.

“This was the most organized and smooth process of a loan I have ever experienced. Everything went as I was told. We did not go back and forth on needing any other docs other than listed in the beginning. Thank you for such a smooth process.”

Allan Boyd

“We can’t say enough positive things about the personal touch and individualized service and attention we received. Commercial bankers could learn a thing or two from Oak Street! THANK YOU to all of you for making one of my dreams come true.”

Richard Morache

“One of the few sources for an insurance agency in securing a loan when acquiring a book of business. Oak Street is a trusted financial partner who understands the insurance business for the independent agency owner.”

Robert Jandrain

“I found the entire experience better than I had expected. Everyone was pleasant to work with and it was much less complicated than one would have thought. Not only would I recommend Oak Street Funding to anyone in need a financing but I will also you them for any future finance needs for my agency.”

Matthew Chavez

“The thing most notable about working with Oak Street was your knowledge of the industry, like ‘pledging future commissions as collateral’. You are in the business, which was invaluable. Compared to our external lenders (or attempts with those lenders) it was night and day. We looked at 8 lenders total throughout the process. Two were VC and 6 were local banks but primarily lending institutions and to be able to talk about carriers and contracts with Oak Street without getting the ‘deer in headlights’ look…you get it! From my perspective as a small owner…again, it was just invaluable.”

Justin Honey

“Loan process was thorough and actually helped me get an even better picture of my cash flows and revenues throughout the process.”

John Ridgway

“Extremely professional and courteous staff. From our first discussion through settlement, the responsiveness and thoroughness was fantastic. Your staff made this a great experience. Plan on recommending your firm to agents looking for funding because of my positive experience.”
