Client Testimonials

  • The Procaccianti Group

    “We frequently purchase interest rate caps to hedge our exposure to LIBOR and we always turn to Pensford to accomplish this. They help us negotiate terms with our lender, formulate the ideal strategy, assist with timing, and ultimately obtain the lowest cost possible with the most favorable terms.”

  • E022BB5A-480E-4635-A59C-4756BFBD2966

    “We were initially hesitant to engage Pensford as we were unsure of what value they could bring to the transaction, but now we are glad we did. Not only were the savings they provided several multiples of their fee, but they even battled a snowstorm to make sure we were able to lock and close on time. We really appreciate the effort they put in.”
