    Capital Raise For The Distressed NPL & RE Investor - Shetty, Tremony Capital

    in Finance

    According to a recent article published by Bloomberg, Oaktree Capital has raised $7 billion for a distressed debt fund as it prepares for the economic recovery to falter.

    For most investors, a capital raise the size of OakTree is simply out of the question.  However, there are still many opportunities in the NPL and distressed real estate space for middle lower market investors especially as FHA, FNMA and Freddie increase their NPL sales creating secondary markets for smaller investors.  Many middle and lower market funds are in active capital raise mode as we head into the 3rd and 4th quarter of the year.

    Joining the broadcast to discuss the capital raise process is Bina Shetty, Head of Strategic Advisory at Tremony Capital.

    Bina Shetty joined Tremony Capital, as the Head of Strategic Advisory with a mission to expand Tremony’s third-party strategic advisory capabilities for lower middle market financial institutions and real estate focused businesses. Prior to joining Tremony, Bina was a Managing Director at Milestone Advisors, a boutique investment bank that exclusively focused on middle markets financial services clients across the depository institution, distressed real estate, specialty finance and financial technology sectors.
