I have been a client of True Viking Finance since 2020 and would highly recommend their services. They have assisted me with my complex financial structures and I have been more than happy with the results. I have recommended a number of my fellow entrepreneurs to True Viking Finance. I will definitely continue to rave about True Viking Finance & Tom Klausen.

I have known Tom Klausen for a number of years as he worked in our Vancouver and Southern California offices. He earned his way into management positions quickly due to his work ethic and teaching ability. His enthusiasm was contagious and he quickly created motivated staffs. I would not hesitate to recommend him for any number of positions involving finance.

Tom’s ability to take the time to understand the businesses he works with is his greatest strength. Being able to find the right funding source for our business came down to an understanding of the uniqueness of the growth position we were in and the short term need of the business. His patience and understanding here are what led to us finding a solution in the shortest period of time. It is without question that I would recommend his service to other fast growing businesses and those in search of alternative financing.

Tom taught me everything I know about factoring and about business development in the asset based world. He cares deeply about small businesses and their owners and is always doing the right thing for each person he comes into contact with.

Tom has many years’ experience in banking and finance, and is uniquely qualified to help companies get the right funding they need, when they need it. He’s well connected, and well respected in financial markets and has both the “know- how”, and “know -who”, required to get things done. Whether it’s a need for working capital, support for an acquisition, Canadian– US cross border financing, or a recapitalization of the firm, True Viking can be a powerful partner for management and ownership , regardless of industry.

Tom carries a wealth of financial knowledge with decades of experience helping companies access the working capital they need to grow. Tom’s financial industry knowledge and thorough analysis come in handy but mostly, his genuine interest in people and their businesses is what makes Tom stand out as a commendable financial consultant.

I worked with Tom for over 7 years and he introduced me to the world of alternative financing. Today as a Business Banker, I always think outside the box. I know if we at the bank don’t have a solution for the prospect or client, I know there are other alternative solutions that can. I value and use my learning from Tom. I would not hesitate to refer business prospects who are struggling to True Viking Finance. Tom can help them become bankable.
