A Special Celebration with Karen Finerman

A member of our Fast Money family had a special moment Friday—Karen Finerman's husband rang the opening bell at the NASDAQ to celebrate the recent IPO of his company, Golub Capital.

Founded in 1994, the middle market buyout lender went public three months ago. The company lends money to midsize companies and typically those involved in a leveraged buyout, says CEO David Golub. During the credit crunch of 2008 and 2009, Golub rapidly gained market share as other lenders struggled. It currently has a balance sheet of more than $4 billion and overtime, has lent more than $6 billion to more than 400 US middle market companies.

"The nice thing about investing in a lending company is that all you need is a flat economy to do well," says David Golub.

So what makes Golub different from other lenders?

"We have always focused on making loans that we are going to hold," says Karen's husband, Lawrence Golub. "We don’t chop them up, we don’t sell them."

Watch the video to see Karen's full report.
