Twain Financial Shares 2020 Impact Report

February 16, 2021

We are proud to present our second annual impact report. While 2020 was a year like no other, we remain immensely proud of our work and dedicated to our mission, vision, and values.

Twain Financial Partners managed to succeed in 2020, despite a number of unforeseen circumstances. Our forward-thinking Business Intelligence team had already implemented the right technology to use on a daily basis, and it turned out to be just what we needed to seamlessly transition to a work-from-home environment.

As the COVID-19 pandemic forced our teams to work remotely and caused a major shift in their daily lives, Twain’s major focus was to remain a flexible and supportive employer. We adapted to the fact that many of our employees were juggling work with overseeing remote learning for their children. We strive to enforce open and regular communication at the personal, department, and company level. We introduced ways for our employees to connect outside of virtual meetings and have fun.

Despite a tough year, Twain managed to thrive. We are proud to have provided rescue capital with Ground Lease Capital and retroactive C-PACE Financing to a number of partners who may have otherwise had to shut down their projects. We grew our team with four new positions and got creative with ways to connect and maintain our relationships.

Heading into our eighth year of operation, we will continue to build upon the solid foundation we have established. We look forward to growing our partnerships with new business opportunities as we continue to provide services, capital, and structuring in complex financial markets.

Thank you for choosing us as a partner.

“Although 2020 was a year with unique opportunities and challenges, Twain remained dedicated to its mission, vision, and values. We made it a priority to be invested in the events happening in the world around us, both economically and socially. Because of this, we have stronger partnerships with and are able to support a variety of projects.  I am proud of Twain’s perseverance and impact on the community.”

“Twain did not shy away from the challenges of 2020. We provided relief capital, clean energy, and tax credit equity to a wide variety of asset classes. I am optimistic for the opportunities ahead for our partners both internally and externally.” – Matt Badler, Principal
