Genesis Capital, an investment manager for funds focused on investing in commercial loans in the residential real estate markets, plans to expand its business operation following a direct investment provided by certain investment funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management.
The company provides short-term loans to qualified real estate investors active in the distressed, single-family home marketplace.
Additionally, an affiliate of the Oaktree funds has also committed up to $100 million to a new vehicle formed by Genesis Capital to invest in loans made to these investors.
"Forging a relationship with Oaktree is an integral step in the growth of Genesis Capital," said Trixy Weiss.
"The corporate investment in Genesis Capital will be utilized to expand our operations, talent and geographic footprint. The fund investment will help us meet heightened demand for residential real estate financing," Weiss added.
