How will I know if there is a new deal?
You will receive an email alert when a borrower’s loan application matches with your lender profile. We will even include financial metrics about the company and commentary regarding the purpose of the request.
What happens after I match with a deal?
You will receive an email alert with teaser information. You may click on a link to quickly accept or decline. After reviewing the company’s data room documents, you can request to schedule a call with the borrower directly. Cerebro will continue working with the borrower and lender to reach a successful closing.
How does Cerebro handle NDAs?
To access a borrower’s data room, you will be asked to click through a confidentiality agreement. You will be able to review the standard language and make changes.
We only work with Sponsor-backed companies, will there be deals for me?
Yes! We work with sponsored deals frequently. You can set a filter in your profile to ensure you only match with sponsored-backed borrowers.
How many lenders am I competing with to win deals?
Cerebro’s process is designed to be beneficial to both parties. The algorithmic matching process ensures we are only inviting a small group of lenders for each deal. Once lenders drop or decline a new wave of lenders can be invited. But the process ensures invited lenders are only competing with a small cohort so the deal is worth everyone’s time.
