We’ve always had a great relationship with them and especially with Fred Moss from whom I learned many valuable things.”

Private Equity Group

“When using other lenders, we never knew until the last minute if they would get committee approval or what their final structure and terms would be. The Accord process works. Others do not move with Accord’s certainty, rhythm or pace. Our working relationship continues to be good, and Accord is on my short list to call when any of my portfolio companies have capital needs.”

Kinsale Capital Partners, LLC

“Accord was very responsive in helping us finance an acquisition last year.  The structure of the transaction was unusual and the characteristics of the collateral were fairly unique, but Accord was very creative in developing a financing structure that worked for the company and Accord. They were excellent to work with through closing and have been very flexible and responsive over the past year.  Our Accord experience has been great – they are a high integrity group who has exceeded expectations.”

The Accord team is professional, focused on the meaningful items and reasonable throughout the process to closing. Thanks to the Accord team and I look forward to working with you all more this year.”

We are forever grateful to the team of professionals at Accord for their support and their understanding of the fashion business. And beyond their attention to financial detail, is their ability to take a personal stake in the day to day intricacies of our business.

FocalPoint Partners, LLC

“My experience working with Accord Financial has been nothing short of exceptional, and I am pleased to recommend the company and its many talented professionals with my highest regard. Business owners should take great comfort knowing that Accord Financial operates with integrity, transparency, and efficiency not typically found in the middle market. The uncertain and constantly evolving banking landscape has resulted in many entrepreneurs uncertain about where to turn for liquidity to operate their company, or growth financing to pursue attractive expansion opportunities. Accord is not only a solution to these issues, but a valued added financial partner with the experience and perspective to help companies reach their potential.”

“Zigi Canada has enjoying growing success in the fast-paced world of fashion footwear. Our challenge was to sustain our growth in Canada while seizing new opportunities in the US. Our energy is focused on sourcing original and exciting styles, and building relationships with key retail partners on both sides of the border. Fast turn-around in every area is essential. Accord gives us quick credit decisions, credit protection, and keeps our receivables turning – allowing us to grow.

Accretive Solutions

“Accretive Solutions needed a financing arrangement that was easy to administer operationally. The Accord Financial team was interested in our challenges. They got to know us and the operational obstacles we were facing. Accord then came up with a great solution for us. The relationship is now in its third year. Not only do we appreciate the way our facility was structured from the start but, also, Accord is always responsive and interested in helping us to be successful. We truly value our excellent working relationship with Accord.”

BabyTEL Inc.

“We have a long relationship with Fred Moss starting in 1978. As CEO of CAFCO, he provided financing into the seven figures allowing Micom to grow into a multi-million dollar enterprise leading to a partnership with Philips NV. Subsequently, after a 10 year hiatus, Montcap Financial Corp. (now Accord Financial Inc.) financed our new company, VDS, based on our assets and accurate assessment of our recurring revenue cash flow, leading to our current profitable multi-million dollar communication company renamed babyTEL. Although often ‘concerned’, Accord always came through.  We are currently ‘bankable’ but still finance through Accord as we get valuable services and also avoid certain expenses that offset their higher rates. We to this day appreciated Accord’s assistance and otherwise might not be here.”

WSP International Limited

“Every successful business needs a good bank to support their funding requirements, without restricting their growth. The Accord team that WSP International has worked with over the past eight years has always done just that. Their flexibility and ability to react to our changing needs cannot be found with any conventional bank. Most banks are there for you when times are good. It’s during the bumps along the road when you really need a bank that most banks go silent on you. Accord on the other hand, has come through for us time and time again when we have hit those bumps along the road! Thank you Accord for sticking with us and for being a major part of our success!”

B-Town Group

“For nearly ten years B-Town Group has sourced and delivered quality natural stone to customers on both sides of the Great Lakes. Accord began financing our equipment in 2010, but it’s the broad range of financing options that have made Accord my go-to company for all our financing needs. We added an AccordOctet supply-chain facility last year as we expanded our sourcing to a fourth quarry. And we recently took advantage of AccordAccess for short-term working capital, which helped us finance a large, profitable order from the provincial government. With Accord Financial as our partner, our sales have tripled in the last three years.”

Jaytex Group

“Twenty years ago we switched our business to another service provider. Our company was growing and we were enticed by a lower rate. Soon after leaving Accord, it was clear that the service level and attention to detail wasn’t the same. We also came to appreciate that Accord’s reporting was simple and easy to understand. After a short absence, we went back to Accord and we’ve been there ever since. I might also add that we’ve been dealing with the same management people at Accord over our 30-year association – a testament to their consistency and professionalism.”

Strellmax Ltd.

“In the last several years our Swiss fashion label, Strellson, has gained popularity in both Canada and the US. For years Accord has managed our credit and collections, keeping receivables turning quickly and guaranteeing customer payments. But with success came new challenges. Accelerating growth required a creative solution to finance the product supply needed to keep pace with increasing orders. Accord backed us with a credit guarantee to our brand partner in Europe. The increased confidence in Europe allowed us to buy more to keep up with the rapid growth in our US orders.”
