Liberty SBF's Big Pipeline
Liberty SBF closed $20M in financing in Q4 2013 and this year, CEO Alex Cohen (center) is projecting over $200M. (He's snapped here with portfolio manager Alex Prombaum and SVP Charlie Bowles.) With offices in Wynnewood and in Newport Beach, Calif., he tells us Liberty has been focused nationally on bridge lending for investment properties and perm financing on owner-occupied real estate, including hotels and special purpose real estate. Now it's expanding into new products like the SBA 504 program, and Alex tells us the team wants to build its presence in the Western and Southeast US. It's also hit the event circuit, sponsoring our third annual Philly Retail Summit in February.
