CG Commercial Finance reported nearly $80 million in Q4/16 originations. With more than $35 million of those originations held on the company’s balance sheet, fueled by the recent capital investment from funds managed by Atalaya Capital Management, inclusion of a third party buy desk and new Alt-Energy Vendor Affiliate channels, the company believes it is making strides toward its short and long term growth objectives.
“We are rapidly positioning ourselves for success with a growing list of flexible, innovative and well-capitalized financial solutions for mid-sized and large companies,” said W.

“As the economy turns optimistic, our focus on widening our balance sheet lending and syndication abilities while increasing the depth of our talent empower our confidence that CG will be an increasing provider of choice for an underserved middle market,” McCullum said.
