Capital Insiders was founded with a focus on capital preservation and consistent income. Our investment strategy is predicated on a value-based approach to generate constant and conservative risk-adjusted returns.

Capital Insiders’ team originates, underwrites, and services private, first-lien, commercial real estate loans to proven real estate investors, landlords, builders, and developers. Loans are secured by a diverse portfolio of real estate at a maximum loan-to-value ratio of 70%.

Prudent underwriting standards emphasizing cost basis with identifiable downside protection.

Investors can exercise the option for interest income paid monthly to create cash flow from their preferred senior-secured position.

Small loans ($100k – $1.5M) are more efficient, offering attractive investment opportunities.

Audit and Accounting reports are available to our Investors at any time. – Capital Insiders exclusively works with top-tier audit and accounting firms in the US who have a comprehensive understanding of our business model. These firms have the expertise and extensive knowledge of all accounting and tax aspects of real estate investments, and commercial lending which is necessary in successfully navigating our highly regulated industry.

Before becoming a private real estate lender, our founder, Emiliano Zapata spent over 20 years in the real estate development and construction industry. Because of his experience and insight, he has built an “Insiders” team of qualified, devoted individuals and strategic partners who are able to provide significant value to our clients and their projects. Over the years, Mr. Zapata has developed extensive market knowledge and invaluable skills in the areas of commercial lending and structured finance.

There are four key-features to fixed income investments that make them desirable to investors:

  • Diversification
  • Capital Preservation
  • Consistent Income
  • Potentially Favorable Tax Treatment

Each feature provides a unique set of benefits that vary depending upon each Investors’ goals.

Portfolio managers who are invested side-by-side with their clients, experience the same risks and reap the same rewards, however, at Capital Insiders, we take a different approach. At Capital Insiders, when it comes to a financial loss-prevention, part of our own capital serves as “first-loss”, and the investor’s capital is in a senior position. That’s what we call: Preferred-Alignment™ because we like to think that our investors deserve some level of capital protection.
