Lending Platforms


Financing Secured by Largo through CMBS Lender

Largo has been working with CMBS or “Conduit” lenders since its inception in the early 90’s. Throughout that period Largo has closed loans with nearly every CMBS originator and has a unique expertise in managing the process.

In addition, conduits can provide long-term interest-only options during the term of the loan. These loans are highly structured and require on-going operating covenants. Conduits primarily quote loans with 10 year terms and 30 year amortizations. The appetite for 5 and 7 year loans can fluctuate.
