CoBank employs an experienced group of capital markets professionals who can assist customers with large financing requirements. The bank’s extensive network of relationships with other Farm Credit banks and associations, commercial and investment banks, finance companies, institutional loan funds and other financial institutions provides our borrowers with substantial lending capacity. The bank is
well-known throughout the industry as a syndicator of high-quality loan transactions.
Loan syndication enables your company to tap a broad segment of the capital markets to efficiently fund large borrowing needs. CoBank can act as agent to arrange loans with a variety of institutional investors including commercial banks, finance companies, insurance companies, institutional loan funds and Farm Credit System lenders. These loans can be used for acquisitions, capital expenditures, growth capital, project financing and working capital needs.
If your company is looking for new ways to raise debt or equity capital, private placements may interest you. Seeking equity or debt from private investors, rather than from the more costly public markets, can help your company achieve its financial goals. We offer private placements through a partnership with SPP Capital Partners, LLC, an investment bank that specializes in taking growing companies to private investors.
Through our alliance with W.R. Taylor, CoBank offers tax-exempt bond financing for facilities and equipment related to industrial development, agricultural by-products, and environmentally-related capital expenditures. These bonds offer advantages to the investor and substantially lower interest rates to the borrower when financing qualifying equipment.
Certain assets can be separated from your balance sheet and used as collateral for the issuance of debt. Securitization often provides substantial funding cost savings when the credit quality of the asset pool to be securitized is superior to the credit quality of the corporate entity.
