AVANA Debt Funds provide flexibility to accredited investors, institutional investors, and family offices. We empower our investors to earn a predictable fixed income, paid out on a monthly basis, by investing in a portfolio of commercial mortgages that are secured by real estate that is owned and operated by small businesses across America. Our goal is to make sure our debt fund is easy to understand. As Peter Lynch said, “Never invest in any idea you cannot illustrate with a crayon.”

Why Investors Choose AVANA Capital

Understanding Commercial Real
Estate Mortgage Investing

commercial real estate debt fund

AVANA Debt Fund platform provides investors with short-term and long-term mortgage investment opportunities. All loans that are extended by our fund to potential borrowers follow the same strict lending principles that are followed by most established and respected banks. We conduct site inspections, real estate valuations and reviews, environmental reviews, borrower background and credit checks, management evaluations, and property due diligence, and we use legal counsel to document all loans in our portfolio. These loans are then offered as a portfolio to our investors, so that every dollar invested is well-diversified and spread across multiple states, various business sizes, and a combination of short-term and long-term loans. There are several other factors that affect your decision to invest in commercial real estate mortgages, and we encourage you to become highly informed about all the key aspects that we look at before funding each loan.

    Investors who identify themselves as conservative typically invest in ST1 and LT1. ST1 provides the investor access to their funds every 90 days with a yield of 3% per annum. LT1 provides the investor access to their funds at the end of the 5th year with a yield of 5% per annum. The funds invested in ST1 and LT1 represent Note A with less than 50% loan to value and therefore the Note A investors are less likely to be be susceptible to principal losses during liquidation unless the value of the property declines by more than 50%.


    Investors who identify themselves as moderate risk takers have typically invested in ST2 and LT1. ST2 provides the investor a 6% yield per annum with a 24 month maturity where as LT1 provides the investor access to their funds at the end of the 5th year with a yield of 5% per annum. In our current group of investors classified as moderate we have seen them allocate funds between ST2 and LT1 in order to balance between yield and maturity.


    Institutional investors in our current portfolio best describe the aggressive investor profile. They are most comfortable with the loan to value risk and the longer term maturity risk. Most of the institutional investors and family offices have invested in the ST2 and the LT2 investment product. ST2 generates a 6% per annum yield with less than 24 month maturity while LT2 generates a 9% yield with 60 month maturity. These institutional investors seek to maximize yield both in the short term and long term and have extensive experience investing in Note A and Note B structures in SBA 504, construction and bridge loans.
