U.S. Debt platform

Our lending platform is defined by deep borrower relationships which have been built through decades of originating and investing in real estate debt.


Investment strategy

We have originated, acquired, and managed debt investments through multiple cycles.

We focus 100% of our efforts on originating and investing in performing U.S.-based, private commercial real estate debt across the risk spectrum.

 

Our cross-platform sourcing network and relationships provide distinct competitive advantages over traditional debt-only fund managers, including more robust deal flow, enhanced underwriting rigor, and strong asset management expertise.


The Walton Street debt platform originates real estate debt investments with disciplined underwriting and loan structures that provide downside protection.

Strong alignment of interest with borrowers achieved through equity subordination and loan structure, extensive asset underwriting, due diligence, and third-party consultant review

 

Institutional borrowers investing in targeted asset classes and markets. Strong relationships with borrowers, brokers, and senior lenders

Performing loans with an emphasis on current return and regular, periodic distributions

 

Prudent and conservative liability and leverage management

 


Proven experience

We have invested in and managed over $11.5 billion in debt opportunities.

Our integrated platforms provide seamless support to the dedicated debt investment team across all aspects of executing our loans, including origination, closing, and management of commercial real estate loans.
