Carver Bancorp and Bank of America Announce Closing of Social Impact Credit Facility with BlackRock
Carver Bancorp, Inc., the holding company for Carver Federal Savings Bank, a certified Minority Depository Institution, and Bank of America Corporation announced today that they have closed a Senior Secured Social Impact Revolving Credit Facility with BlackRock's Alternative Solutions Group. BlackRock Alternative Solutions manages private market portfolios and invests across alternative asset classes, sectors and geographies on behalf of its clients. The transaction represents the first time that Carver has participated in a subscription line facility and is among the first-of-its-kind transactions where an MDI has joined as a co-lender. It is also the first subscription line transaction with an MDI lender for both BlackRock and Bank of America. The facility pairs Carver and Bank of America's lending and advisory capabilities with BlackRock's investment expertise, including in the areas of social impact and sustainable investing.
