The Lending Fund is a real estate-backed fund focused on originating first position loans to professional real estate operators. Through our lending strategy, we are providing capital to top-tier operators and builders to create, improve, and preserve affordable workforce housing while actively helping our sponsors scale their businesses and make an impact.

This Fund endeavors to produce attractive risk-adjusted returns by making short-term bridge loans, generally six to 24 months. These loans are typically senior, secured, first position non-owner occupied single-family and multifamily mortgages.

Fund Highlights

  • Open-ended, private credit real estate investment fund that enables the manager to make debt investments for the acquisition, repositioning, and construction of primarily workforce housing assets designed to provide strong consistent returns to investors.
  • Loans are typically short-term in nature, ranging from six to 24 months. The short-term duration focus of the fund provides significant liquidity to investors and should provide protection from rising rates and inflation.
  • A thorough underwriting process that makes sure loans are only made to borrowers that have a high probability of success with the project/property by primarily lending to proven successful operators with high credit scores, ample liquidity, and personal guarantees.
  • Subordinated management fees, whereby investors receive their monthly preferred return distributions before DLP receives any fees; aligns investors’ interest with DLP’s.
