Wellington Financial, the exclusive resort finance lending correspondent for Liberty Bank, says the bank has renewed a long-term lending relationship with Silver Lake Resort, a timeshare development company located in Orlando, Florida. The transaction continues to provide $40 million for receivables financing, in addition to an amortizing $6 million development loan that was used to construct a new timeshare building.
“We’ve enjoyed working with Liberty Bank and Wellington Financial over the years,” says Silver Lake Resort’s CEO, Deborah Moore. “The bank’s support has been instrumental in Silver Lake Resort’s substantial growth.”
“We’ve been providing a diversified financing package to Silver Lake since 2009 and are delighted to have been a significant part of their success,” says Liberty Bank Vice President David Brede.
Wellington Financial’s Executive VP Shawn Brydge says, “Silver Lake’s management team, each of whom have significant tenure at the company, are wonderful to work with. Their consistency and passion to provide a quality product and wonderful customer experience is evident in the way they run their operation, and that carries over to our lending relationship.”
