Commercial Mortgage Loans

Approach

This strategy originates whole loan commercial first mortgages on stabilized, multi-tenant properties across U.S. major markets and property sectors. We believe packaging high quality real estate credits into a portfolio diversified across borrowers, tenants, geographic location and property type will deliver attractive long-term, risk-adjusted returns versus corporate credits of a comparable quality.
