ACORE Capital is an independent commercial real estate finance company launched in May 2015 with $1.6 billion in committed capital.
We originate, acquire and manage first mortgage loans, B-notes, mezzanine debt and preferred equity throughout the U.S. Leveraging the 100 years’ cumulative experience of our founders and a highly sophisticated lending platform, we are uniquely positioned to provide borrowers with customized and flexible financing solutions at competitive rates on loans ranging from $20 million to $300+ million. With $1.6 billion in initial committed capital, we anticipate originating as much as $5 billion in first mortgage and mezzanine transactions.
We are a one-stop shop structured to quickly commit and close loans for our balance sheet, originating loans on all property types nationwide, in Canada and Europe. Because we are a balance sheet lender, our underwriting is unconstrained by bank regulations, bond structures or rating agency criteria.
Our management team brings deep industry relationships, unparalleled real estate debt investment experience and access to broad-based deal flow. The team is led by commercial real estate finance veterans Boyd Fellows, Stew Ward, Chris Tokarski and Warren de Haan, who built and ran the commercial real estate lending activities at Starwood Property Trust, Countrywide Financial Corporation and Nomura Securities International Inc. During their 20-year partnership, this team has closed more than 4,000 commercial real estate loans totaling more than $40 billion.
