Chief credit officer, Honour Capital

Description

After more than 15 years in credit risk management, Amber Benavides helped establish Minneapolis-based Honour Capital in 2020. The financial services company aims to fill a void in the capital finance market by combining the best aspects of institutional independence: access to multiple funding sources, less regulation, and more creativity in the underwriting and transactional design process. As chief credit officer, Benavides helps clients better manage their cash flow, budgets, and overall cost structure. Since Honour Capital’s inception, she has procured about $50 million in funding for equipment—mostly for Minnesota companies.
