In June, Access Point Funding I 2015 A executed its ABS securitization (A-rated), comprised of 119 loans totaling $186 million and initial tranche. 

“Albeit with tempered exuberance, I am extremely proud of our significant accomplishments during the Q2 and Q3 reporting period,” said Jon S. Wright, CEO of Access Point Financial. “The milestones we have reached and financial results produced for our investors in this post-recession era are a testament to our long tenured management team and fiercely loyal client base that continues to realize our ability to close in short order based on market driven velocity. We have a sustainable business model in both good times and bad, and not being an owner operator of hotel assets is evidenced by portfolio performance and our recent A-rated securitization. I am thrilled that APF continues to thrive and appreciate the recognition from Inc., the Atlanta Business Chronicle and The Association for Corporate Growth of our successful niche business dating back 25 years.”

APF completed its expanded physical build out to accommodate recent growth with 24,000 square feet at Ravinia 1 Office Park, where the enterprise has existed for the better part of 25 years.
