Established in 1987, Broadmark Capital is a merchant bank providing direct investment opportunities for accredited investors, and financing and management services to emerging companies. Pyatt Broadmark Management is an affiliated company of Broadmark Capital and is the Manager of Pyatt Broadmark Real Estate Lending Fund I.

In late 2009 and 2010, we began an extensive due diligence process that included a review of many competitive real estate lending firms. We learned two things: first, we concluded small builders, developers, and real estate investors need short-term commercial financing; moreover, demand for this financing is even more acute today than it has ever been. Historically, this type of financing was supplied by regional banks. However post-credit crisis, many regional banks were either shut down completely, sold to larger competitors, or restricted from making these types of loans. Banks have not returned to this market since that time and we don't believe they will. Second, we concluded a relatively conservative real estate lending fund could be designed to mitigate many of the risks that have plagued this asset class. So we did, and built a fund we would be comfortable recommending to our friends and family.

I've been in 2 of their funds for over a year. Consistent, rocksolid performance, good diversification, timely payments, excellent communication. Return has been between 10 and 11% which is fantastic for hard money loans in the current environment.
