Woodforest Commercial Banking Completes $60 Million Syndicated Credit Facility For Avmont, LLC in the Fixed Income Alternative Investment Space

The Woodlands, TX., September 2018 – Woodforest Commercial Banking, a division of Woodforest National Bank, announced it recently led a new $60 million senior secured credit facility for a private investment fund focused on investing in pools of whole life insurance policies. The financing includes a $60 million line of credit to support continued growth and asset acquisition opportunities.

Avmont, LLC, based in Atlanta, GA, is an asset manager specializing in purchasing whole-life insurance policies from individuals and managing pools of these assets for third party investors. The company primarily purchases policies from qualified individuals with the goal of providing over-insured individuals a source of liquidity for otherwise illiquid assets which they no longer need.

"Woodforest has developed a strong and ongoing relationship with Avmont management and the private equity ownership group. The team is highly experienced and top notch in its execution and strategic direction. This oversubscribed facility was another positive step forward between our teams. We look forward to a long lasting, mutually beneficial, relationship with Avmont and their ownership team," said John Ellis, Senior Vice President and head of Woodforest Commercial Banking Syndications.

William Ketterer, Chief Investment Officer for Avmont added," Avmont and its investors are excited to be expanding our relationship with Woodforest. The guidance that Woodforest Bank gave us throughout the syndication process was best in class. We look forward to continuing to work with the Woodforest team in the future."

Woodforest Commercial Banking served as Administrative Agent and Lead Arranger for this transaction.
