Trez Capital Announces Strong Performance in Q1 2024 Amidst Expanding Opportunities in North American Commercial Real Estate

May 15, 2024

VANCOUVER, BC – CNW – May 15, 2024 – Trez Capital, a leading non-bank commercial real estate lender and investment manager, reaffirms its strategic advantage in identifying and capitalizing on opportunistic investments in the North American commercial real estate (CRE) market after a successful first quarter of 2024. 

“Trez Capital remains at the forefront of the alternative financing space, where compelling opportunities have emerged from the increasing debt funding gap across various real estate sectors, said Dean Kirkham, Co-Chief Executive Officer & President, Trez Capital. “Our strategic focus on select markets with strong population, employment and gross domestic product (GDP) growth continues to position us for success and consistently provide value to our investors.” 

Debt Fund Update 

Trez Capital is pleased to announce the payment of year-end top-up distributions following the conclusion of the annual audit of each Trust. The annual income generated in 2023, in most debt Funds, surpassed the regular monthly distributions paid to unitholders. These figures represent an estimate of the average return to F series unitholders. The actual top-up distribution rate may vary for each individual investor.  

The Funds performed beyond initial expectations due in part to market shifts that occurred in 2023, including increased housing demand, rise in property values and improved rental income, coupled with effective asset management. 

“In 2023, we paid out over $165 million in distributions to our 33,000 investors worldwide,” said John Maragliano, Chief Financial Officer & Chief Operating Officer, Trez Capital. “2024 presents even more significant opportunities for strategic investments, with an escalating demand for housing in key markets across North America and favourable regulatory and economic fundamentals in those regions.”
