Distressed for Success

When Sabal Financial, an international financial services firm specializing in the acquisition and management of distressed real estate loans and assets, bought a $1.7 billion portfolio of distressed real estate from the FDIC, gathering the required proof of insurance turned into a last-minute scramble. Shortly before closing, Sabal discovered the portfolio’s insurance solution was off the mark.

Establishing Credibility

They turned to Lockton for help and 48 hours later they had a new solution, along with millions of dollars in savings.

“It was our first transaction with the FDIC, and it really established us as very credible player,” said Pat Jackson, Sabal Financial’s CEO and founder.

Sabal has purchased five FDIC portfolios since then, with Lockton at their side and an entirely new approach to risk management.

Our ability to go into new businesses and have Lockton partner with us, helping us understand strategies that will make us more successful as we launch into new things, that's our competitive edge"

-Pat Jackson, CEO and Founder
