At Fiera Private Lending, it is our duty to act responsibly and diligently in the best interests of the stakeholders. Our clients, investors and employees are at the heart of our concerns.
Our policies and procedures are geared to preserve independence and transparency among risk management, disbursement management, loan administration and the business development teams. Every lending opportunity is analysed to ensure it upholds the credit policy. Our transactional and operational processes are governed by very strict standards and due diligence to clearly identify the risk factors.
Senior management and our internal stakeholders have a solid reputation and extensive market experience. They stay constantly informed about different markets in order to limit potential risks and adjust accordingly. In addition, Fiera Private Lending never stops developing new products to meet market demands and diversify its risks.
Our credit committees are made up of internal members based on pre-determined latitudes, but a highly qualified independent external reviewer is also mandated to corroborate and ensure sound risk management of the loans authorized by each credit committee. Likewise, the company continually improves its risk management approach, and multiple internal controls are in place in each operational process for the entire duration of a loan application, beginning with a due diligence review and until the full repayment of our advances.
