Fieldpoint Private Brings Main Street Lending Program to Clients

Greenwich, UNITED STATES


GREENWICH, Conn., Oct. 05, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fieldpoint Private, the fast-growing wealth advisory and private banking boutique serving families and institutions, announced that it has begun delivering funding to its clients through the Main Street Lending Program (MSLP).

The program was established by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, signed in March. Its $600 billion in funding is administered through the Federal Reserve. The intent is to keep credit flowing for the relief of mid-sized businesses that entered 2020 in sound financial condition, but later faced hardship as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At the heart of the MSLP is a program by which the Federal Reserve purchases 95% of each loan from the lending institution, with the bank retaining 5%.

Fieldpoint began funding with a $25 million loan to a Georgia-based client, with similar funding in process for two other clients that are rehabilitating housing for families, and working to maintain construction activity and protect against layoffs of workers.  

“The Main Street program is like the PPP’s big sibling. The PPP directly protected jobs for small businesses, while Main Street provides capital where companies need it,” said Russ Holland, President and CEO of Fieldpoint’s banking unit, referring to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), also provided for by the CARES Act. “We considered it imperative to make the Main Street tool available to our entrepreneur clients. It was work with meaning, and I’m proud of the efforts of our team to pull it off.”

Fieldpoint Private also has been active in the PPP emergency funding, administered through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA). In just a few weeks, through participation with the SBA, the firm funded more than 60 loans, protecting paychecks for more than 1,400 families.
