At Gelt Financial,, we believe that, when done properly, mortgage lending can be an attractive and secure investment.  To this end, we utilize the following principals when underwriting loans:

  • Conservative Loan-To-Value Limits. Lower LTVs mean lower risk, as there is greater collateral value securing the loan.  While Wall Street loans of the mid-2000’s were often done at 100% LTV and banks still routinely make 95% LTV loans on owner-occupied properties today, Gelt makes loans where the LTV at completion of any improvements will be no greater than 65%.  Overall, we target a portfolio LTV of no more than 55%.
  • Focus on Repayment. For each loan, we focus intently on how we will be repaid, even if the borrower defaults.
  • Focus on Safety over volume. We have been in all economics markets and learned that its much better to focus on risk aversion over volume. So we are very focused on this.

If you are an accredited investor, Hedge Fund or Family office looking to invest in commercial first mortgages on real estate with above market returns we offer a complete turnkey solution for you to invest in private commercial real estate mortgages at low loan to values. You can invest in a single mortgage or diversify your portfolio.
