Nation’s leading construction lender furthers its growth with committed capital

We are pleased to announce that Builders Capital recently closed a transaction with InterVest Capital Partners, forming a strategic partnership that results in a commitment of up to $500 million in growth capital and InterVest acquiring a strategic minority interest in Builders.

“We are thrilled to partner with InterVest, one of the leading specialty finance investment platforms,” said Robert Trent, CEO of Builders Capital. “We plan to use the capital to aggressively expand our platform and continue to provide creative financing solutions to our homebuilding customers.”

“We have tremendous confidence in the Builders Capital team and their 15-year track record as the leading private construction lender to homebuilders,” said Michael Gontar, CEO of InterVest Capital Partners.
