Joint Venture solution

No two projects are the same; therefore, every loan has its own unique structure. At Progress, we strive to arrange a construction loan that is tailored to each client’s holding period and exit strategy.   


Looking for funding for a complex non-traditional project? To make a large expansion investment that requires major project financing? Do you need $20M-$500M in funding or investment capital?

  • Backing of up to 100% of Project Costs
  • 30 years of professional expertise
  • Project financing package specific to your business needs
  • No Repayments required until project successfully begins


    CITI advisors growth capital model which is also called expansion capital and growth equity, is a unique asset class of its own. Unlike typical later venture capital type models growth capital has out performed the venture capital asset class for a while. Growth capital belongs to the private equity investment family, investing into relatively mature companies that are looking for capital to expand or restructure operations, enter new markets or finance a significant acquisition.


    We also have vast resources obtained through long established partnerships with $500 million in capital and capital commitments and access to virtually unlimited funding through our partner network. This unique combination gives us the ability to provide direct business funding, as well as funding through issuance of corporate bonds, for your energy project. With over $500 million in capital and capital commitments at our disposal for specialty financing and access to practically infinite capital, we can fund even your largest energy
