Matthew T. Owings
Vice President, Underwriting
As a senior underwriter, I structure and underwrite asset-based loans for our clients. I leverage my underwriting, credit and portfolio management experience, having worked with family-owned, private equity backed and public companies across a broad range of industries. My decade of experience includes structuring, underwriting and syndicating transactions from $2 million and $50 million for institutions including Veritas Financial Partners, EverBank Business Credit and Keltic Financial Services. Transactions include direct loans along with participations in club deals and nationally syndicated loans.
Part of my job is traveling and visiting clients, and I enjoy the diversity of challenges that come with learning about different businesses, industries and areas of the country. Interacting with clients face to face gives me insight into how to better tailor solutions for them. As an energetic person, I love to work hard on a deal, and underwrite the optimal structure to tailor the Veritas credit facility to each client’s needs.
It’s critical to bring a responsive, team approach to every aspect of my work, whether it’s working with clients or colleagues. Answering questions and providing feedback in a timely manner helps Veritas to be as competitive as possible.
I enjoy keeping up with my colleagues and the industry through my membership in the Turnaround Management Association (TMA) and Commercial Finance Association (CFA). In my downtime, I enjoy golf, travel, scuba and reconnecting with family and friends.
I earned Master’s and Bachelor’s degrees in Economics from Clemson University, and previously served as the Community Service Chair for the Clemson University’s Alumni Network in New York City.
