A LETTER FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Understanding the Challenges of Growing Businesses
At Hamilton, we understand the challenges of growing a business because we've done it ourselves.
In early 1994, we leveraged our experiences in the banking industry, and expertise in the alternative financing market, to start Hamilton. Our vision was to offer emerging businesses a better way to finance their growth. We wanted to provide capital in a way that made sense while providing flexibility to expand with growing business needs.
We modeled our finance programs around a factoring solution because it offered an ideal framework for cultivating programs that were cost-competitive, easy-to-attain, and straightforward. More importantly, we knew our solutions would meet the specific capital needs of high-growth businesses in search of alternative financing.
In short order, we realized how desperately our products were needed. We initiated a long-term growth plan that encompassed three major ingredients: hard work, innovation, and vision. Today, over two decades later, we are an industry leader on a national scale. We are headquartered in Syracuse, New York, and have regional offices elsewhere. To date, we have funded countless businesses, and provided nearly $1 billion in timely financing.
As a fast growing firm ourselves, we have learned first-hand the financial demands and operational requirements of growing and transitional businesses. We attribute much of our present success to using our own experience as a springboard to offer a product and service that fully supports business growth.
We invite you to visit with us. Take a few moments to familiarize yourself with our products, our approach, and our philosophies. We're confident that you'll find Hamilton to be a unique provider of funding to America's business community.

WHY CHOOSE HAMILTON?
Hamilton's Unique Program
Not all businesses have the same growth needs, nor do they all want the same features in their factor. But universally, they all want the "best deal." Since its inception in 1994, Hamilton has successfully delivered upon that goal by leading its industry with unconventional, client-friendly solutions.
During its early days, Hamilton's founders sought to forever change the dynamic that accurately defined the factoring industry back then. Factoring was rightly viewed as a niche product with few fans. Clients routinely had to suffer high fees, tough volume and term agreements, personal guarantees with full-recourse programs, and indecipherably complex escrow accounts.
AGAINST THAT BACKDROP, HAMILTON ENTERED THE MARKET WITH THEIR UNIQUE PROGRAM FEATURES:
Hamilton offers each of these items as its standard-product offering, which is virtually impossible to find elsewhere.
Try us, you'll be amazed. You’ll find our fees to always be competitive, and when you assess your effective costs of capital, you'll find that Hamilton's product structure ensures that we almost always offer the cheapest effective rate.
