The securitization, believed to be the first of its kind, consists of “fix-and-flip” loans issued by Prime Bridge to residential real estate investors. The securitization features an 18-month revolving period in which paid collateral is replaced with new collateral. The average loan balance in the securitization is $199,052, with original terms between six and 12 months.
“Investors are attracted by this product and its unique structure. The short-term nature of the collateral paired with an attractive yield makes for a rare opportunity in today’s investing climate,” said Angel Oak Co-Chief Executive Officer and Chief Information Officer Sreeni Prabhu. “But most importantly, investors understand the Angel Oak story by now. Our affiliated mortgage companies’ expertise in quality origination gives investors confidence that our securitizations are backed by loans underwritten to specific guidelines. We believe we have one of the most diverse securitization platforms in the industry.”
Prime Bridge, which started operations in 2011, provides an alternative to private/hard money and commercial bank loans for fix-and-flip residential real estate investors, most of whom renovate properties.
“The securitization will allow Prime Bridge to expand its reach and provide capital to more real estate investors,” said Prime Bridge Senior Vice President Robert Mulcahy. “This, in turn, will lead to the improvement of housing stock in many areas and the betterment of many communities.”
