Why PNC for Private Equity?  

More than 750 Private Equity Firms count on the consistency, expertise and experience of PNC Business Credit for creative, flexible capital to support their long-term investment approach.

Expertise

In countless unique business situations, our team has been able to solve complex situations by listening and going beyond the numbers to build capital solutions that may require less equity and lead to a better return. We are the dealmakers and have more than 500 dedicated professionals exercising local decision making across the U.S., Canada and the UK managing more than $44 billion in commitments — and growing.

Experience

For more than 20 years, throughout the business cycles and across a wide variety of industries and business situations, PNC Business Credit has been a reliable source of capital. With more than 1,500 deals closed in the last 9 years, hundreds of private equity relationships and capital solutions that reach beyond the ordinary, your firm can count on us to get the deal done.

Confidence of Execution

To us, the phrase “Done Deal” identifies who we are because we do what we say we are going to do — every time. To ensure your acquisition closes on time. To ensure the recapitalization positions the company for an improved financial position. To facilitate the new product or geographic expansion. To power the turnaround that aligns with your firm’s vision and investment objectives.

Taking the Long View

Among your portfolio investments, issues will arise and the market will force change in unexpected ways. In these circumstances, PNC Business Credit capital solutions are often structured to “move with the company” — allowing a more flexible and less restrictive lending relationship. A relationship that can work through complexities with creativity and a relentless client focus that takes a longer view.
