INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITIES

COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE

Churchill underwrites/originates first and second mortgages, mezzanine loans, and late-stage preferred equity to finance development projects, transitional properties, repositioning projects, and inventory loans, in all cases stressing the importance of risk management and downside protection.

Churchill is “micro-focused” on specific neighborhoods within Manhattan, Queens, and Brooklyn, targeting mid-sized/boutique projects where the team can understand unique nuances and market-specific issues in order to help borrower/developer create a successful project.

Current market conditions provide a compelling opportunity for Churchill to pursue defaulted debt opportunities, originate and/or recapitalize construction loans, pre-development/acquisitions loans, and to provide capital for special situations including partnership funding shortfalls or distressed circumstances.

Churchill is sponsoring an open-ended fund which provides investors the opportunity to capitalize on debt opportunities and select equity opportunities primarily located in New York City.

DISTRESSED REAL ESTATE OPPORTUNITIES

  • Identifying market inefficiencies to procure performing and non-performing loans that are being mispriced by the market

  • Acquiring real estate debt and equity owned by banks and other lenders

  • Bespoke correction-market opportunities

RESIDENTIAL TRANSITIONAL LENDING

Churchill’s captive direct lending platform provides short-term financing (generally 12 months or less) to real estate investors used for the purchase and refurbishment/construction of real estate which the investors re-sell after refurbishment/construction is complete. 

 

Churchill has recognized that residential real estate investors and developers can’t wait for the burdensome, rigid bank loan approval and funding processes for which the financing market for these properties is highly fragmented; the industry - often being served by small individual investors and those using self-directed IRAs to pool capital and fund these projects. Real estate investors often fund projects by pooling multiple private individual investors, making for a burdensome and stressful process.

 

Real estate investors are frustrated with these inefficient and unreliable capital sources in the market and are unable to receive financing in a timely and efficient manner from typical lenders.

 

The fragmented, inefficient, and non-institutional capital market for these loans, coupled with the current need in the US for new and re-developed housing stock (due to the fact that much of the US housing market is aging) served by these real estate investors/developers provides an opportunity for Churchill to provide the needed capital to borrowers and developers, by being able to originate, underwrite, and fund loans quickly, efficiently, and reliably.
