Helping You Grow

As an investment advisor, you help your clients increase their worth. Of course, your goal is the same for your business. With Live Oak Bank, you get a long-term financial partner who believes in you and your firm. We know you can grow and we want to help, which is why we have a lending team dedicated solely to investment advisor loans.

Our Investment Advisory Lending Team has extensive industry experience and expertise—we understand your business. We have loaned over $500 million to independent investment advisors for working capital, succession, acquisition and more.


Our unique focus and approach offers investment advisors these advantages:


We don’t “shop” your loan to the highest bidder— approve, underwrite, fund & service the loan ourselves. You’ll always get straightforward answers from us.

Industry Experience:

Our loan officers are industry veterans who work specifically with financial advisors like you. Let us share our experience and data to help you refine your growth strategy and access the capital to make it a success.

Simplicity and Speed:

Our innovative online platform optimizes the speed and ease of closing, while minimizing paperwork. With Live Oak Bank, you can look up the status of your loan online, any time.

You are more than a broker on the hunt for the next transaction. And so are we.

When you talk to your clients, you have their long-term interests at heart. That’s how you won their trust and loyalty, and built a successful practice. At Live Oak Bank, we take the same approach. We aim to support your firm’s long-term success, long beyond your first loan.

Live Oak is not your traditional bank. Our mission is to create an unprecedented banking experience for small business owners like you. Our Investment Advisor team works only with independent financial advisors, all day, every day, so we are laser-focused on your industry. And because our founders are innovators in both finance and technology, we bring efficiency and excellence to the lending process.

At Live Oak, we put our own capital at risk. We decide whether we believe in you, and once we’re in, we don’t walk away. We are not “shopping” you to a list of institutions.

We believe that your business is your life, and it’s worth our best efforts as well as yours. Our officers are available to advise you long before you decide you’re ready to borrow. If you want to do research, please visit our Knowledge Bank, where you can find videos, worksheets and reports that will help you chart your company’s path forward.

Call us. We’re happy to talk.
