In order to bring our clients’ visions to life,
we started with one of our own.
you r dr e a m s i n s p i r e us . Black Diamond Capital Group was conceived
as something entirely new: a commercial
lending ﬁ rm that places a higher premium on
building relationships than on simply building
our portfolio. To that end, each of our team’s
innovative ﬁnancial experts was chosen for
their integrity, vision and—above all—honesty.
We look forward to bringing all three to bear
as we turn your goals into reality.
The business and ﬁnance professionals who created Black Diamond
Capital Group brought together a broad range of experience and
a common insight. We saw an opportunity to provide what was
missing in the lending industry: a partner so committed to open,
honest client relationships that we take no upfront fees or business
plan charges. In fact, unless we procure funding for a client, we
take no fees at all.
From that non-traditional vision, we created a unique commercial
lending ﬁ rm. Based in West Jefferson, NC, we rely on an expanding
network of investors, both domestic and international, to meet our
clients’ funding needs.

the path w e tak e.
Black Diamond Capital Group follows a proven series of steps
to ﬁnd, structure and complete your ﬁnancing. At every stage
of the process, we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may
have about the status of your project and prospective deals.
the path we tak e.
We’ll gather standard information that investors request. Generally,
• An executive summary and/or business plan
• Your company history and background
• Principals’ résumés
• A summary of current ﬁnancing, including payment history and payoff information
• Property photos, appraisal, structure renderings or construction transactions
• Other information on an as-needed basis
Of course, any information you provide is held in the strictest conﬁdence.
We’ll contact likely investors for your project. Once an investor decides to pursue
a ﬁnancing arrangement, we’ll work with them directly, providing information and
helping to shape the terms of the deal.
The investor will send a Letter of Intent
(LOI) with preliminary details of the deal
structure. These will include their initial offer
and terms, subject to negotiation. You can
agree to the terms or counter.
Once the LOI is secure, we’ll try to close the deal within 45 days, working closely
with both teams to achieve a mutually beneﬁcial arrangement.
