Syndicate Partner Program Summary

Siena is an independent commercial finance company with a hybrid business model originating asset based lending transactions for its own balance sheet, as well as providing a turn-key, low risk, syndication and servicing solution for community banks (“Syndicate Partners”) seeking to safely diversify their balance sheets.

Siena was formed by the core operating team of Burdale Capital Finance, Inc., a highly respected $1.6 billion ABL platform. Burdale was sold to Wells Fargo in early 2012 as part of a mandated deleveraging requirement placed upon Bank of Ireland.

Siena Lending Group LLC is an independent commercial finance company offering asset based loans from $1 - $20 million to small and middle market businesses across the United States. Siena also offers a servicing platform which provides a seamless, turn-key asset based product for community and regional banks that desire diversification of their balance sheets. Our partner banks may lack the industry-specific expertise or the infrastructure required to successfully and safely enter the asset based lending market.

Siena’s clients benefit from the best of both worlds; Siena’s independence as a finance company allows innovative & flexible solutions while allowing the client to maintain their relationship with their own regional or community bank. Siena’s management team is experienced, innovative, dependable, entrepreneurial, and highly regarded within their industry. The team, as a group, has over 170 years of experience and has transacted over $12 billion in facilities throughout their careers. Every transaction includes:
  • Access to senior decision makers;
  • Extensive senior management involvement; and
  • A flat non-bureaucratic approach.
Though small & middle market businesses represent a significant portion of the country’s economy, there is a clear void in the current banking system to provide lending solutions for these companies. Siena’s experienced team will create an innovative solution for each customer that will maximize the customer’s borrowing capacity & will enable the customer to maximize its potential for GROWTH, PROFITABILITY, & SUCCESS.
