Investments in loans on high-quality California real estate targeting preservation of capital and stable returns exceeding 8%

The Fund holds newly originated trust deeds (loans) and purchases existing mortgage notes, all secured by prime investment-grade real estate throughout California.

Monthly dividends that can be automatically reinvested to build total return, which is uncorrelated to the performance of the broad capital markets (such as stocks, bonds, gold, and other commodities).

Backed by independently audited financial statements.

Lending Bee, Inc. is led by professionals with foremost expertise in the California private real estate lending markets.

The principals of the Fund Manager have invested over $2 million of their personal capital alongside Fund investors.

Investing for Strong, Steady, Return Secured by Quality Residential and Commercial Real Estate

The Fund originates, underwrites, and finances loan transactions on high-quality investment real estate properties. These transactions provide an attractive risk/return balance to investors in the Fund—who each personally own a fractional share of the Fund’s investments.

  • PREDICTABLE MONTHLY DIVIDEND PAYMENTS: The Fund receives steady income in the form of loan interest paid by the borrowers. From this cash flow, the Fund distributes monthly dividends to investors.
  • POTENTIAL FOR SUBSTANTIAL LONG-TERM ACCUMULATION: Investors have the option of receiving the dividends or having them automatically reinvested to take advantage of the power of compounding.
  • THE SECURITY OF REAL ESTATE COLLATERAL OFFERS PRINCIPAL PROTECTION: In the event of a borrower default, the Fund Manager can foreclose on the property securing the loan. At that point, the property becomes part of the Fund’s portfolio. This offers investors the highest degree of principal protection.
  • NO CORRELATION: There is no direct correlation of the cash flow from the loan payments (or the value of the real estate collateral) to the performance of the stock or bond markets.
  • LIQUIDITY: There is a strong secondary market for loans, which are constantly in high demand from individuals, institutions, and hedge funds. Therefore, the Fund can typically honor redemption requests.

With a Favorable Sharing Arrangement: 8% Preferred Return for Investors

It is anticipated that investors will receive an 8%-to-10% return in investment each year.* Furthermore, when it comes to receiving distributions of cash flow, the Fund’s sharing arrangement gives priority to investors over the Fund Manager. The Fund Manager receives no Profit Sharing until investors have received their 8% Preferred Return.

Maintaining a Well-Diversified Portfolio

The Fund’s loan portfolio has been diversified over many different borrowers, properties, and geographic regions of the state. Also, to further protect the Fund from a potential downturn in any particular market sector, the Fund Manager strives to keep the Fund’s collateral real estate well diversified by property type and use.

  • RESIDENTIAL (1 to 4 units)

Taking a Proactive Approach to Risk Control

In addition to keeping the portfolio diversified, the Fund takes a number of other important, prudent steps to reduce risk and protect capital.

Potential loan transactions are carefully vetted by our team of seasoned real estate and lending professionals.

We invest where our expertise is—California. Here’s where we know the demographics, the regulations, the real estate investors and agents, and the regional markets down to the individual properties and their “highest and best use.”

We lend on properties that are either generating rental income or are poised for some significant commercial purpose.

The Fund maintains title insurance on each property with coverage of 125% of the loan amount, as well as hazard insurance when appropriate.

PRUDENT LOAN-TO-VALUE RATIOS: A Built-in Margin of Safety

  • Collateral Value in Excess of Loan: At least 30% of Property Value
    So even if property value were to decrease by 30% the loan principal is still completely protected.
  • Maximum Loan Amount: 70% of Property Value
    The average loan-to-value ratio of the portfolio is under 55%. The Fund will only loan up to 70% of a property’s value.

In case of a foreclosure, the property becomes an asset of the Fund and any rental income collected is distributed to investors. Any extra profit from the sale of the asset is distributed 50%/50% to investors and the Fund Manager.

Ideal for a Wide Range of Investors

The Fund is available to Accredited Investors (as per Regulation D under the Securities Act) who fit any of the following profiles:

  • INVESTORS SEEKING PORTFOLIO DIVERSIFICATION: The Fund’s steady, low-risk return has no direct correlation to stocks, bonds, or commodities.
  • OR, TOTAL RETURN: With monthly dividends reinvested, the Fund can serve as a near- or long-term vehicle for capital accumulation.
  • OR, MONTHLY INCOME: An investor in the fund can opt to receive the monthly distributions rather than have them automatically reinvested.
  • INVESTORS FUNDING A SELF-DIRECTED RETIREMENT PLAN: The Fund is approved for investment by self-directed 401(k) plans and IRAs. Plan holders can transfer their 401(k) or IRA into an LBC Capital self-directed IRA—an investment that has proven more profitable than bonds and safer and less volatile than stocks.
  • INVESTORS WHO LIKE REAL ESTATE: With real estate probably near the top of its market cycle, it may be preferable to own loans rather than the real estate itself.
  • MONEY MANAGERS, RIAS, FAMILY OFFICES: Financial professionals seeking diversification, robust returns, and capital preservation for their investor-clients.
