Economic Development Expertise
Our team has 100+ years of combined experience in commercial lending and development.
Partnerships with Developers & Municipalities
We work with cities who need economic development and developers who want to build projects.
TIF Loan Origination
Our loans are structured to strategically monetize TIF incentives and provide project funding up front.
Leave the dirty work to us. We’ll handle the everyday tasks involved with servicing your TIF loan until it is paid off.
What We Do
Providing TIF Development Loans to Fuel Economic Growth
Untamed Equity is uniquely positioned to help developers and municipalities create economic growth in their communities. We understand the challenges that developers face when there is a gap in the equity needed to close project funding.
That’s why we’ve developed a specialized lending program that monetizes TIF incentives offered by local governments in TIF districts, turning them into loans that provide upfront funds, move projects to the finish line faster and ultimately produce a higher return on investment.
Reaping the Benefits of TIF
Turning Pay-As-You-Go TIF Incentives into Funding Up Front
Get projects off the ground, increase ROI, build your capital stack… whatever your economic development goals are, Untamed Equity can provide a lending solution to help you meet them.
Get development moving
Municipalities can offer a pay-as-you-go incentive model, while developers are able to realize their TIF funds upfront with reduced cash requirements and no out-of-pocket payments.
More bang for your buck
Instead of developers using their own money to fund equity, we’re putting our partners’ money in, mitigating the deal risk for the municipality and increasing likelihood of completion.
Put your money to work
With the potential value in the incented project freed up, developers can invest in other unrelated projects, growing their capital stack and driving economic growth.
