Origin of Our Name
“Varagon” is based on the word “paragon,” a term describing a model of excellence or standard of exceptional merit. The “V” alludes to the “versatility” of the product suite and to the “value” Varagon delivers to borrowers, financial sponsors, and credit investors. “Value” also reflects our commitment to building lasting partnerships though the highest standards of ethics and professional conduct.
