Strategy

Focus on commercial real estate debt and JV equity investmentsin the United States.

  • Investment experience of senior team focused on b-notes, mezzanine loans, preferred equity, performing and non-performing note acquisitions, CMBS and Freddie Mac bonds, and joint venture equity
  • Collateral located in primary and secondary markets with strong demographics, population and employment growth with specific interest in high innovation/university districts
  • Focus on less accessible market segments – smaller, relationship driven, off-market transactions which produce higher yielding investments
Opportunity Set
  • Restrictive regulatory environment for banks creates opportunity for real estate debt funds to replace lending to top-tier commercial properties in prime markets
  • This regulatory environment coupled with impending maturities ($1.4 trillion in commercial real estate debt is to be refinanced between now and 2018) has resulted in a financing gap that provides ample opportunity for subordinated debt lenders
  • CRE Debt is a defensive and income focused investment option
    • Debt provides investors with exposure to real estate that is more senior in the capital structure than equity investments and has a contractual recurring income source
    • Real estate prices, rising since 2009, are expected to plateau making debt an attractive alternative to equity
