We loan because...
At Carlson, we are committed to the values of integrity, leadership, caring and passion. For more than 80 years, our people have leaned into them in the best and worst of times. Today, every dynamic of life as we know it is changing. While there is fear in the face of uncertainty, there is hope too. As leaders in responsible business, we must find opportunities to be a positive force for change in this new, emerging world.

About us
Carlson's roots are set in 1938, when Curtis L. Carlson took an idea and a $55 loan from his landlord and founded the Gold Bond Stamp Company in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Today, the Carlson enterprise operates in nearly 150 counties and territories around the globe. Our portfolio includes the premier business and travel company, CWT (, and Carlson Private Capital Partners (, an investment firm for businesses best served by a partner focused on long-term value creation.

Carlson has always been driven by and rooted in a strong set of values exemplifying the bold, entrepreneurial spirit and high quality standards embodied by our founder, who left us the Carlson Credo:
Whatever you do, do with INTEGRITY.
Wherever you go, go as a LEADER.
Whomever you serve, serve with CARING.
Whenever you dream, dream with YOUR ALL.
