The majority of private lending businesses are small in size, owned and managed by entrepreneurs. As a result, the industry has not effectively witnessed its fair share of consolidation in the past. Furthermore, there is an almost existential contradiction between financial prospects and self-employment. However, with the influx of institutional capital into the private lending marketplace and more standardization, merging with another private lender or acquiring an institutional investor is becoming a popular occurrence in the private lending business.

As such, we discuss below, key factors private lenders need to consider in preparing their business for a merger or an acquisition;

  • A necessary component to a successful merger or acquisition which should not be overlooked is the certainty of a high volume of loan origination as the business would grow in size. Therefore, it is necessary to be certain that there would be more transactions leading to more profit.
  • For a valuable private lending business, key components such as loan processing, marketing skills, and investor relations capability must be well considered when preparing for a merger or acquisition.
  • Another practical consideration is to make sure you’re creating your company with the intent of selling it. With that, a possible merger or acquisition is very likely to be successful.
  • Factors such as the compatibility of the two merging partners, long term visions, and goals are very important before joining forces in the private lending business
  • Finally, it is critical that key executives on both sides have a good working relationship. They should also have similar business principles and ideals before the merger or acquisition occurs, as this has led to the failure of mergers in the past.
