Our Heritage

In 1993 the founding partners of Crystal Financial recognized an opportunity to create an innovative, highly responsive lender to the middle-market.

Our collective knowledge and experience is based on a comprehensive evolution that includes our original position nearly two decades ago when we formed a specialty finance company, GBFC Inc., that was later acquired by BankBoston (now Bank of America), then founded Back Bay Capital, a pioneering junior secured debt fund. In 2006, Crystal Capital, serving middle-market companies seeking debt capital solutions, was launched and in 2010, we became Crystal Financial with an exclusive focus on providing commercial loans.

Our clients and partners can rely on Crystal Financial to deliver innovative capital and the debt-structuring expertise, broad industry knowledge, and a partnering experience that middle-market companies need to thrive.
