ORIGINATOR PROFILE

Avant Capital Partners

Avant Capital Partners is a New York-based real estate bridge lender with a focus on $2 to $20M loans in the New York Metropolitan area. The Originator lends to middle-market borrowers seeking capital for properties that may not qualify for traditional bank debt, financing under-performing and/or transitional properties, borrowers with imperfect credit histories or transactions with time constraints. The Originator’s investment team is comprised of senior investment professionals with experience in real estate, loan origination, loan servicing, restructuring, and asset management. Since inception in 2007 to 11/11/20, the Originator has originated 91 loans, of which 72 were in the New York Metropolitan area and 10 were development/redevelopments. 

Lending Methodology

The Originator established a due diligence process to both gather and review the information necessary to make an informed credit decision. The Originator’s first area of focus is the associated property or properties, which are the primary source of security. The Originator has cultivated relationships with a number of referral sources through which it sources its transactions. Its credit analysis is primarily based on its internal underwriting and market analysis. The first step in its underwriting process is a site visit of the collateral property and a borrower meeting. Along with property-level data and third-party reports such as property condition and environmental reviews, its underwriting team then conducts its own market analysis and prepares an internal asset valuation report. Third-party appraisals, or Broker Price Opinions, are also obtained and serve as a secondary source of valuation.

Many of the Originator’s transactions involve the borrower performing enhancements to a property or improving operations, which are expected to result in increased property value. In addition to appropriately valuing a property at loan closing, the Originator analyzes the borrower’s strategy to add value to a property and service the loan prior to stabilization. This consists of the Originator reviewing the budget, expected performance, and interim sources of income. Repayment typically occurs through the stabilization of the property’s income and the subsequent refinancing with a conventional lender or sale of the property.

The borrower’s financial statements are reviewed to understand the assets available to satisfy any cost overruns associated with the property or to satisfy any guarantees associated with the loan, although no independent verification is made. The Originator views loans holistically so the risk associated with a borrower can be mitigated by adjusting a loan’s amount, interest reserve, or requiring additional cash reserves. The Originator may require that the borrower provide a full personal guarantee which obligates the borrower to remit additional funds in the event of a repayment shortfall or cost overruns.

With the full real estate and borrower profile complete, the Originator prepares an investment memorandum summarizing its due diligence findings and presented to its investment committee. All transactions require the unanimous approval of the investment committee. Once approved, the Originator offers terms it believes are reasonable and sound.

Portfolio Management

The Originator established an internal servicing function which is responsible for monitoring and management of its loan portfolio. The Originator processes monthly interest payments, including payments to senior leverage providers (if applicable), and controls the disbursement of construction funds reserved (if applicable). Its in-house servicing team provides oversight to ensure the project progresses in line with the budget. Disbursement reports are provided on a monthly basis, and process reports are provided on a quarterly basis to participants and/or investors.

We believe our 10 alternative asset classes, track record across 470+ investments, third party reviews, and history of innovation makes Yieldstreet “The leading platform for private market investing,” as compared to other private market investment platforms.

1 Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Any historical returns, expected returns, or probability projections may not reflect actual future performance. All securities involve risk and may result in significant losses.

3 "Annual interest," "Annualized Return" or "Target Returns" represents a projected annual target rate of interest or annualized target return, and not returns or interest actually obtained by fund investors. “Term" represents the estimated term of the investment; the term of the fund is generally at the discretion of the fund’s manager, and may exceed the estimated term by a significant amount of time. Unless otherwise specified on the fund's offering page, target interest or returns are based on an analysis performed by Yieldstreet of the potential inflows and outflows related to the transactions in which the strategy or fund has engaged and/or is anticipated to engage in over the estimated term of the fund. There is no guarantee that targeted interest or returns will be realized or achieved or that an investment will be successful. Actual performance may deviate from these expectations materially, including due to market or economic factors, portfolio management decisions, modelling error, or other reasons.

4 Reflects the annualized distribution rate that is calculated by taking the most recent quarterly distribution approved by the Fund's Board of Directors and dividing it by prior quarter-end NAV and annualizing it. The Fund’s distribution may exceed its earnings. Therefore, a portion of the Fund’s distribution may be a return of the money you originally invested and represent a return of capital to you for tax purposes.

5 Represents the sum of the interest accrued in the statement period plus the interest paid in the statement period.

6 The internal rate of return ("IRR") represents an average net realized IRR with respect to all matured investments, excluding our Short Term Notes program, weighted by the investment size of each individual investment, made by private investment vehicles managed by YieldStreet Management, LLC from July 1, 2015 through and including July 18th, 2022, after deduction of management fees and all other expenses charged to investments.
