NexPoint Real Estate Finance, Inc. (NREF)
First Day Turnover23.02%
We are a newly formed commercial real estate finance company. Our strategy is to originate, structure and invest in first mortgage loans, mezzanine loans, preferred equity and alternative structured financings in commercial real estate properties, as well as multifamily commercial mortgage backed securities, or CMBS, securitizations, or collectively our target assets. We will primarily focus on investments in real estate sectors where our senior management team has operating expertise, including in the multifamily, single-family rental, or SFR, self-storage, hospitality and office sectors predominantly in the top 50 metropolitan statistical areas, or MSAs. In addition, we will primarily focus on lending or investing in properties that are stabilized or have a “light-transitional” business plan, meaning a property that requires limited deferred funding primarily to support leasing or ramp-up of operations and for which most capital expenditures are for value-add improvements.
Our primary investment objective is to generate attractive, risk-adjusted returns for stockholders over the long term, primarily through dividends and secondarily through capital appreciation. We will seek to employ a flexible and relative value focused investment strategy and expect to re-allocate capital periodically among our target investment classes. We believe this flexibility will enable us to efficiently manage risk and deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns under a variety of market conditions and economic cycles.
We will be externally managed by our Manager, a subsidiary of our Sponsor, an SEC-registered investment advisor, which has extensive real estate experience, having completed approximately $9.0 billion of gross real estate transactions since the beginning of 2012. In addition, our Sponsor, together with its affiliates, including NexBank, is one of the most experienced global alternative credit managers managing approximately $13.3 billion of loans and debt or credit related investments as of September 30, 2019 and has managed credit investments for over 25 years. We believe our relationship with our Sponsor benefits us by providing access to resources including research capabilities, an extensive relationship network, other proprietary information, scalability, a vast wealth of information on real estate in our target assets and sectors and sourcing of investments by NexBank.
Substantially all of our assets will be owned directly or indirectly through our OP. Upon the completion of this offering, we will hold all of the limited partnership interests in our OP.
We intend to elect to be treated as a real estate investment trust, or REIT, for U.S. federal income tax purposes beginning with our taxable year ending December 31, 2020. We also intend to operate our business in a manner that will permit us and our subsidiaries to maintain one or more exclusions or exemptions from registration under the Investment Company Act.
