Borrow More Effectively
A negotiated direct purchase loan is a flexible structure that enables you to meet particular cash flow needs by borrowing directly from J.P. Morgan. This type of loan has low upfront costs since it bypasses underwriting and it can accommodate up to 100 percent of your required proceeds for periods as long as 15 years. Given their unique nature, these deals can close in as little as two weeks. They can also take the structure of a general obligation, limited obligation, or appropriation obligation based on your need.
Work with a Committed Partner
We use our strategic relationships to support government clients in the areas of education, providing community resources to improve economic prospects, and investing in infrastructure. In recent years, we’ve committed $100 million to a five-year program to support and accelerate Detroit’s economic recovery. We also made a $10 million, three-year investment to help drive inclusive economic growth in underserved Washington, DC, neighborhoods, most notably in Wards 7 and 8.
