Star Mountain Capital closed a $225 million asset-based leverage facility from top quality institutional investors led by ING Capital. The lending group consists of ING, CIT, TIAA Bank, Axos Bank, East West Bank, Georgia Banking Company and Customers Bank. This leverage facility for Star Mountain’s Strategic Credit Income Fund 3 provides additional capital to make value-added debt and equity investments in established U.S. small and medium-size businesses that generally have between $15 million and $250 million in annual revenues.

“We are delighted to have attracted such a high caliber group of new and existing bank relationships as partners into our third flagship value-added direct lending fund,” said Brett Hickey, Star Mountain Capital Founder & CEO. “We were pleased with the strong demand to support our strategic private lending business,” said Stephen Paras, Star Mountain Chief Credit Officer and former Head of Merrill Lynch leveraged loan capital markets who has underwritten over $50 billion in event driven financings across multiple cycles.

"We, together with our lending partners, are excited about the launch of this partnership with Star Mountain,” said Patrick Frisch, Head of Fund Finance Americas at ING. "We look forward to supporting the continued growth of their business and to furthering our relationship with the Star Mountain Capital team.”

Star Mountain was advised by Keefe, Bruyette & Woods (KBW), a Stifel Company. Legal representation for Star Mountain was performed by Lowenstein Sandler LLP, a 300+ lawyer national firm. Dechert LLP, a global law firm with 900+ lawyers across 24 offices, represented ING.
