CHICAGO, IL – April 17, 2024 – Victory Park Capital (“VPC”), a global alternative investment firm specializing in private credit, today announced that it has closed a $100 million credit facility with Sétanta Development Capital (“Sétanta”), a Charlotte-based residential real estate financing provider. The transaction will support Sétanta’s acquisition and development financing for residential land developers.

“We are excited to be partnering with Victory Park Capital,” said John Curry, Sétanta’s CEO. “This financing will support our efforts to provide developer-friendly capital and, in the process, support the growth of the U.S. housing market.”
