5 Commercial Real-Estate Investors Who Are Raising Billions
Business Insider featured Madison Realty Capital Managing Principal and Co-Founder, Josh Zegen, to learn more about the future of specialty lending and real estate investing in our volatile times. Zegen sees an opportunity for MRC in the wake of massive disruption in the CRE investment sector caused by COVID-19, thanks to his firm’s willingness to tackle higher-leverage lending than banks. Madison Realty Capital can leverage the considerable cash raised via its private debt funds to offer competitive prices on both performing and non-performing loans. One recent deal for five loans from Ladder Capital totaled over $150 million, and Zegen says that his firm is keeping an eye on similar loans as banks become less patient with their borrowers heading into 2021.
