Illustrator Jerry Gonzalez shares his take on the return of Andrea Petro to the industry as leader of Waterfall Asset Management’s Specialty Commercial Finance Group after her retirement from Wells Fargo Lender Finance.



Final Cut - Petro at Waterfall

Waterfall Asset Management launched its Specialty Commercial Finance Group (SCFG), led by Andrea Petro, to provide high yield senior secured debt to specialty commercial finance companies.

Petro began her specialty finance career at Transamerica Business Credit and subsequently spent 17 years with Wells Fargo Capital Finance’s Lender Finance division.

“SCFG will work with Waterfall’s consumer finance and esoteric finance businesses to provide a full suite of debt offerings to specialty finance companies across a broad array of asset classes. Providing alternative senior secured lending that is supported by Waterfall’s expertise and deep knowledge of both debt and equity markets will significantly enhance Waterfall’s ability to serve counterparties,” said Petro.
