The BMO Advantage


You need your debt provider to make quick decisions, offer added value and deliver on commitments without any late surprises. At BMO Harris Bank, our experienced team of sponsor financing professionals does just that, and works hard to ensure you get the speed and certainty of close that you need to finance your middle-market transactions. Our bankers also draw on their expertise and broad industry knowledge to look at the larger picture of a potential acquisition, helping you assess opportunities and risks to reach smarter, quicker decisions. In addition, we’ve structured our business so that the same team works with you from initial review to ongoing portfolio management, delivering the reliable execution and follow-through that you demand. And our commitment to you doesn't end at the close of the transaction. BMO Harris Bank seamlessly provides financing and investment banking capabilities, treasury management, interest rate hedging, institutional trust services (including 401(k)) as your company’s requirements expand, and private wealth management. And our Sponsor Fund Lending group gives private equity firms a fast, flexible and convenient means to access capital without tapping the resources of limited partners.


With our long-term presence in sponsor finance, broad geographical reach, and the resources, stability, and strong balance sheet of BMO Financial Group, you're working with a partner that will help simplify the path to completing your deals and achieving your vision.
