This is our new commercial that is scheduled to start running on television next week that we approved yesterday. We hope you find it interesting.
The reality that is playing out is a huge window of opportunity that has been created for preferred equity and mezzanine loan funding participants in the market, as they have cashed-in to fill the void created by many commercial institutions exiting the market for new construction loans for all but their well-heeled customers. The initial profit-taking bonanza this created for alternative lenders is starting to unwind … More Shooting the Gap: Mezzanine & Preferred Equity Financing for CRE ADC Projects
Financing for CRE construction projects can be problematic to be sure. The regulatory envelope continues to change. Developers need equity financing today to create enough incentive for them to bring project opportunities forward from the pre-development stage to the pre-construction phase.

While it is true these funding products cost more, a closer look may reveal that cost may in fact be negligible compared to the cost to capital associated with a lost opportunity. … More Time is Money: Bridge & Mezzanine CRE Lending Opportunities for CRE Properties & Projects
Changes in the market are inevitable and it is just not possible to project market conditions beyond the 2-year window with any amount of certainty that is worth betting investment dollars upon in today’s capital markets. The reality is that you can’t expect to manage the myriad of market risks by simply conducting a market analysis once a year or once a quarter on an ongoing basis. If you are going the private placement offering route (i.e.: seeking capital through the broker-dealer market) the compliance requirements of FINRA and the SEC for due diligence demand a whole lot more … More The Market Test: Why Capital Financing Success is so Elusive
Credit risk underwriting has become an extraordinarily complicated process for business lending and investment. Books have been written about it. Banks spend fortunes on trying to manage it. Everyone in finance has been taught the importance of it and yet it remains a pivotal element in the search for the Holy Grail – the reduction of investment/loan loss severity risk. … More The Emperor Clothes: Credit Risk Underwriting
