Our community of “lenders” are empowered with the knowledge, perspectives, and efficiencies needed to make informed decisions about real estate debt investing.

Benefits of Real Estate Debt Investments

Real estate debt investors are essentially lenders. They provide financing, either directly or through investment in debt funds, to borrowers in exchange for interest payments and the promise of principal repayment.

It’s a way of investing that has a number of key advantages, one that’s helping an ever-growing number of savvy investors like you to protect and grow their wealth.

Less Risk

Lenders are not directly exposed to the operational risks associated with property ownership, things such as prolonged vacancy, spikes in operating expenses, or property damage.

Capital Preservation

Lenders benefit from the significant downside protection that’s unique to real estate debt investing, an equity cushion created by a carefully considered and planned credit box.

Steady Returns

Lenders receive a consistent and predictable income stream, typically either monthly or quarterly payouts that are based on the known interest rates of the underlying loans.


Lenders have better asset allocation in their portfolios due to the low-to-moderate correlation of real estate debt investments with major asset classes and economic indicators.
