Debt & Equity Capital for ​Real Estate, Project Finance, and Strategic Mergers & Acquisitions

High-profile examples of sensational growth and profitability are well documented in film, television, music, videogames, sports, and other media businesses. However, one factor still holds the power to limit growth: a  company's lack of access to banking and financial services.

As an owner or prospective owner of a media/entertainment business knows, finding and maintaining funding for a specialized-industry business is a difficult process. Many banks refuse to provide loans for completely legitimate businesses due to lack of familiarity or understanding of industry nuances, and banks may shy away from the accounts of those in the businesses as well. However, there are alternative funding options for operating and growing businesses in these exciting yet challenging industries.

Serving Your Unique Financial Needs

What does the current financial environment mean for business owners? Typically denied loans, closed bank accounts, and even the loss of the ability to use major credit cards. Many banks are still reluctant to invest in specialized business segments, which are difficult to manage or liquidate if a borrower defaults on a loan. For now, many businesses need to pursue different financing options.

Pacific Capital Partners provides capital advisory services and debt and equity placements to a broad array of clients in these industries.
