No additional costs using AdvisorLoans than going alone
There are no extra costs paid to AdvisorLoans than if you were going to any lender direct. Our clients never pay AdvisorLoans any amount of money for any reason. When your loan is closed, the lender either reimburses us for loan packaging costs and analysis, or will pay us what they normally allocate from their marketing budget.
Loan Advisory Model
The entire foundation of the AdvisorLoans client service model is built on being Loan Advisors for Financial Advisors. We represent the interest of the advisor, not the lender. Advisors help their clients with investment advice, planning, making prudent financial decisions, selecting funds and managers most ideal for the client’s situation, and the client of course isn’t dealing with an SMA directly. Financial Advisors need Loan Advisors for many of the same root reasons. However, with AdvisorLoans, we don’t have to charge our clients a fee.
Lending Open Architecture
AdvisorLoans operates an “open architecture” of multiple loan types, lenders and programs for SBA, Tri-Party and conventional loan options. We believe choice always benefits the advisor.
Financial Industry Expertise and Commitment
We offer our clients a unique combination of expertise from both a lending solutions and financial industry perspectives. For over 15 years now, our founders have been exclusively helping advisors with solutions connected to financing needs in the first place. This is our industry, and helping advisors is the core of everything we do. Our advisor clients aren’t just 1 of 15 industries we work in like a giant publically traded bank. We don’t work with funeral homes and chicken farmers. While we don’t have a background in chickens, we are intimately familiar with financial industry nuances, acronyms, platforms, channels, cash flow business models, recruiting deals, valuations, M&A deal structures, and the capabilities and limitations of lending programs. More importantly, we apply this expertise to the benefit of our advisor clients lending needs.
Save money and time
We’ve spent many thousands of hours developing our experience and expertise in advisor lending to save our advisor clients many hours of time to figure out everything on their own. Being an AdvisorLoans client gives advisors a lot more time to spend with their clients. We save advisors substantial time in researching options, determining which lenders and programs advisors qualify for, and unnecessarily filling out multiple applications and loan packages. We have some influence with certain loans to push down the rate, accelerate timelines, and getting exceptions as needed on a case by case basis.
Turnkey Full-Service Solution
We support advisors with every step of the loan process from initial consulting, loan packaging, pre-qualification, to funding. If you need assistance in business valuations, deal construction, legal review and advice we can connect you with trusted vendors we regularly work with.
We keep advisor hours not banker hours
Many of the advisors we work with have busy schedules and work long hours. AdvisorLoans puts an actionable priority on accessibility. If you need to speak about your loan before or after market hours, we’re here. Need to talk on Saturday because of your hectic week? Call or text your Loan Advisor and you’ll get a prompt response.
Internal Loan Packaging
By packaging the loans internally, we save advisors time and headaches from having to create multiple packages and filling out multiple applications with a bunch of different banks.
We don’t shop your loan
We already know the loan structures, rates, and approval criteria of the available lenders and lending programs. Our expertise and Loan Advisory model enables our clients to know in advance which lending option we would move forward with pending review of the loan package and analysis approval.
Cultural synergy with our clients
Like most of our clients with independent advisory firms, we have an “advisor” mindset, not a banker’s mentality. We also believe in putting the best interest of our clients first through an advisory approach rather than selling proprietary products. We also focus on developing long-term client relationships to become our client’s Loan Advisor for life.
