Since 1988 we have provided capital to state and local governments for the purchase of essential equipment and projects. During our 23 year history we’ve funded over 4,000 municipal governments. Additionally, we’ve provided vendor finance programs for both Fortune 1000 manufacturers and independent privately held vendors selling into the government market.
Our focus has been to work through major industry vendors and their respective dealer networks. MSG has evolved into a consulting and financial services merchant bank providing flexible, creative solutions addressing the needs of vendor and municipal clients. The company’s service orientation, combined with regional sales support and proprietary technology, are the underlying elements that facilitate MSG’s capital and financial relationships. MSG prides itself on the quality and consistency of its vendor and municipal repeat business, loan documentation, and the efficiency of its servicing operations.
This performance is underscored through its relationships with Fortune 500 corporations and municipalities throughout the United States. MSG has national vendor agreements in place with Badger Meter, Inc., Pitt-Des Moines, and Layne Christensen Corporation; and it provides lease purchase financing for Navistar dealers nationwide. On the municipal side of the business, MSG is the largest private lessor to school districts and counties in Texas, with over 250 entities under a Master Lease Agreement.
Specialized agreements and working relationships with equipment manufacturers and their dealers, as well as municipal associations and individual municipal entities, are the basis for MSG’s excellent reputation in the public finance industry. To date, MSG has provided financing for over 1,500 municipalities, providing MSG’s staff with insight into the unique needs of municipalities. Whether directly contacting the municipal entity or providing a turn-key package with a vendor, our corporate focus is very clear: MSG provides cost competitive financing for municipalities seeking to acquire essential equipment at low, tax-exempt rates.
