Fairway America launches its newest mortgage pool and real estate asset based mutual fund, Fairway America Fund VI, LLC


Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) February 07, 2013

Fairway America, LLC (Fairway) announces the launch of its sixth and latest proprietary investment fund, Fairway America Fund VI, LLC (Fund VI). Fund VI is a nationwide investment fund focusing on small balance commercial and investment real estate loans and opportunistic real estate based assets. Fund VI will seek to leverage Fairways relationships with clients and sources from around the country created through its thriving private lending mortgage pool fund advisory and consulting practice.

Fund VIs strategy is to create a conservative and highly diversified, income producing portfolio of small balance real estate based assets with a focus on commercial and investment real estate loans. We are looking to partner with the right people who have demonstrated a clear track record of success and who have a similar philosophy and culture to our own, said Matt Burk, founder and CEO of Fairway and Chief Investment Officer of Fund VI. Competency, integrity, and transparency are extremely important to us as an investor and are the keys to success in todays highly competitive private fund world.

After having launched and managed its then largest fund and related $ 50,000,000 institutional credit facility during the 2008 financial crisis and its aftermath, Fairway spent the better part of the past two years successfully working through that funds capital structure and portfolio of assets. 2008 to 2012 was a very challenging period and we are very proud of our performance during what was by far the most difficult combination of conditions of my lifetime. It is nice to be playing some offense again. Fund VI is now actively seeking to make new investments in a measured and opportunistic fashion.

Being one of a limited number of industry players in the small private fund space to survive intact the upheaval in the real estate and capital markets during the Great Recession, Fairway successfully morphed its business model to bring its expertise, experience, and systems to other private lending industry players. Our strategy is to help other small balance operators around the country make the transition from doing deals one investor at a time to doing them in more effective and efficient capital structures said Burk. The response to our advisory and consulting practice has been overwhelming and gives us tremendous access to best-in-class operators and quality deal flow for Fund VI. We are very excited to leverage all of our experiences and lessons we have learned and incorporate them into the fabric of Fund VI.
