Key Facts & Figures since inception 2018 through 06/2024


There are many reasons why borrowers do not utilize traditional bank financing.

Speed and Flexibility

Traditional banks often have extensive bureaucratic processes and stringent lending criteria, which can result in lengthy approval times

Credit History or Financial Situation

Borrowers with less-than-perfect credit or unconventional financial situations may struggle to qualify for loans from traditional banks

Property Type or Use

Traditional banks may have restrictions on the types of properties they are willing to finance or the purposes for which the funds can be used

Loan Size

Traditional banks may have minimum and maximum loan size requirements that may not align with the borrower’s financing needs

Complexity of Transaction

Real estate transactions can be complex, involving multiple parties, unique structures, or non-traditional terms. Borrowers may find that alternative lenders, such as private lenders, are better equipped to handle these complexities and provide customized financing solutions

Investment Terms

$20 -$100 million of sub-tranche to support a warehouse facility in a portfolio of existing and newly originated loans

14-16% Projected Net IRR* over 2 to 3-year term (based on management’s estimates)

SPV Structure with waterfall over 1.5-year investment period:

  • 2% Annualized Management Fee on Equity
  • Investor’s Cash Flows: 10% preferred IRR plus 70% of excess cash flow
