Two Decades of Loyalty

While other lenders may come and go, we have never wavered in our commitment to serving the unique equipment financing needs of the media + entertainment industry.

Technology + Equipment Financing

At First American, we know technology. We embrace it. We utilize it. And we most assuredly finance it. While some lenders may be uncomfortable financing soft costs — we welcome it.

Tailored Equipment Finance

Need a custom solution for your unique needs? Your finance specialist will collaborate with you to create an on-target solution to help you revolutionize your business.

Clear + Straightforward

You can expect clear, unambiguous lease documents, prompt responses to inquiries, full disclosure of all costs upfront, no fees of any kind, and the friendliest documentation in the industry.

Service with Purpose

Your dedicated Project Manager works with you to understand your needs and preferences to deliver personal, direct service that helps drive the growth and success for your organization.

End of Lease Solutions

In this industry, constant equipment upgrades are non-negotiable. But what happens to your old equipment at the end of your lease? First American can sell it and put 100% of the proceeds toward your new lease. 

The Strength of RBC and CNB

In 2015, RBC merged with First American's parent company, City National Bank. First American operates independently, but is backed by the strength and stability of City National and RBC.


Quickly and easily retrieve all the information you need about your leases, when and how you need it — at your desk or on the fly via your smart phone or tablet.


Fast track your transactions with the secure DocuSignTM e-signature platform that allows you to execute lease documents anywhere, anytime.
