Medallion Financial is a growth orientated, specialty finance company with at one time held a leading position in the origination and servicing of loans financing the purchase of taxicab medallions and related assets, but has since downsized.

Medallion was organized as a Regulated Investment Company and, as such, was required to distribute at least 90% of its income to its shareholders.
