Bernard H. Linney has built multiple companies throughout his career. Two of them exceeded $20 million a year in revenue over a period of less than five years alone. But that is not what makes him special. In fact, as SouthStar Capital, LLC’s clients can attest to, Bernard will never boast of his proven track record in numerous Asset Based Financing and Factoring transactions. He has owned and operated multiple successful businesses from start to exit, adhering firmly to an unchanging corporate philosophy of understanding a client’s business to more strongly help them reach their financial goals. At SouthStar Capital, clients are assured of fast approvals thanks to the firm’s provision of in-house underwriting. With the bulk of underwriting done on a client’s debtors, the client is assured that their financials are not destructured. Credit decisions are made by SouthStar, with certain products being offered to clients regardless of whether the business has been running for just a day or for a century. The only requirement is that the client can provide a valid invoice for a product or service, and SouthStar can finance it. Established in 2008, SouthStar Capital is backed by its leader’s more than 25 years of industry experience at designing customized capital solutions. Mr. Linney works hard to equip the company with a diverse product mix that allows clients to go for solutions that best suit their business. Offering a non-traditional perspective on financing approval, SouthStar is fueled by the peerless out-of-the-box thinking of its strong-minded President.
