Current Conditions in the Commercial Real Estate Market Have Created an Extraordinary Opportunity for High-Yield Investments

Northwind Financial Corporation is uniquely positioned to capitalize on the current market conditions. We have worked with private and institutional investors from around the world, and have an excellent track record in post-credit crisis environments and an industry-leading operational team.

Northwind’s Private Lender’s Network™ (PLN) consists of Individual Investors, IRA’s, Trusts, Pension Plans, LLC’s, Corporations, etc. The PLN is setup to fund 1st Position Trust Deeds, also known mortgage loans. When an investor becomes a member of the PLN, they become a “private lender” and gain access to high quality mortgage loan investments through Northwind Financial Corp. The invested monies are secured by loans on residential & commercial investment real estate properties in various states.

But why should YOU get involved, and why NOW?

Fundamentals in Commercial Real Estate Have Remained Strong

There are several reasons why now is the time to get involved in real estate investments:

  • Current market conditions (and opportunities) are a result of the lack of funding availability and forced liquidations.
  • Regulations have changed. Lenders are restricted to lending to a handful of developers, limiting new capital in the market – and any new supply.
  • Until liquidity returns, repriced assets will be unattractive to conventional banks.
  • Northwind views this dislocation as an extraordinary opportunity for investors, both individually and institutionally.


We Partner with a Variety of Investors


For more than 20 years, Northwind has been partnering with a wide variety of investors on different projects and opportunities. These include:

  • Institutional Investors
  • Smaller Pensions Funds
  • High-Net-Worth Individuals
  • Family Offices
  • Endowments


They Have One Thing in Common. They Want Meaningful Yields on Their Investments.

Experience and numbers provide safety and comfort.  Many who work with us were seeking high yields in mainstream investments with high volatility and risk, such as high-yield bonds, equity investments in REITs and other such investments. But they eventually realized that these types of investment vehicles do not provide much control or safety. As a result, investors and beneficiaries can be put at risk.

Our strategy is focused on alternatives within the fixed income class that can provide higher yields with more control and less risk.


Proven Strategies That Reduce Risk

Are you concerned about the risks associated with alternative investments? How do you structure these types of investments in ways that can actually provide security in both good and bad markets?

A foundation of our success is our buy-and-hold strategy acquiring assets with strong, stable cash flows.


A Window of Increasing OpportunityCommercial loan opportunity

Northwind expects that there is a window of approximately 3 to 4 years for our fund to capture the valuable opportunities that exist. There are a variety of reasons that these opportunities will continue to increase:

  • A historic supply of maturities coming due during the next 5 years
  • High demand for capital from middle-market sponsors
  • Fewer capital providers participating in middle-market commercial real estate


A Unique Network of Industry Contacts and Sourcing Ability

Northwind offers the prospective investor an unrivaled combination of advantages when it comes to investment options and security.

  • Depth to substitute experienced operators/sponsors where needed to achieve the highest equity recognition
