SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlphaFlow, the leading institutional platform for investing online in real estate debt, today announced the hiring of two executives with extensive experience in the real estate and fintech world: Natasha Sachdeva and Scott Ardrey. Mrs. Sachdeva joins as Vice President of Lender Partnerships, and Mr. Ardrey joins as Director of Capital Markets.
In her role, Natasha leads a team devoted to both signing new lender partnerships and making the firm’s current relationships as successful as possible for both AlphaFlow and its partners. Prior to joining AlphaFlow, she spent nearly four years at Roofstock where she held multiple roles including Head of Supply Growth and Head of Business Operations. Before Roofstock, Natasha established a strong foundation in technology and finance as part of the Technology Group at Jefferies investment bank.
“I'm thrilled to join the AlphaFlow team during this unprecedented time, especially alongside a seasoned management team with such deep industry expertise,” said Mrs. Sachdeva. “AlphaFlow is made up of incredibly dedicated people who are fully committed to the success of our lenders. With a true product-centric partnership approach as our shared foundation, we are cross-functionally committed to establish new products and streamline processes to support real estate lenders in this critical period of industry growth."
As AlphaFlow’s Director of Capital Markets, Mr. Ardrey will bolster the firm’s strategy and reporting with a growing number of financial institutions seeking to invest in loans through AlphaFlow. He brings four years of industry expertise from working with both lenders and investors at Direct Access Capital, where he led capital markets and helped the firm fund over $1 billion in loan purchases with lenders across the country. At AlphaFlow, Scott will focus on diversifying the firm’s capital sources with both institutional investors and securitizations.
"I am excited to join AlphaFlow, a true innovator in the RTL industry,” said Mr. Ardrey. “Having been in this industry for the past four years, I was impressed with how AlphaFlow is using technology to streamline the operations of this asset class and make it more accessible for all types of investors. The company and platform were built to serve all stakeholders in this industry, whether they are a lender or an institutional investor, and provide best in class service. I am thrilled to be a part of this team and contribute to the growth of the company."
Mrs. Sachdeva and Mr. Ardrey are joining the company as the company enters a period of massive growth in 2021. The firm closed a first-of-its-kind $100 million securitization in January of this year and is quickly expanding its lending partners and institutional investor clients.
“AlphaFlow is incredibly fortunate to have talented people like Natasha and Scott join our team and help us deliver the best experience possible for our partners and clients,” said Ray Sturm, co-founder and CEO of AlphaFlow. “They each bring a commitment to taking one of the largest asset classes in the world – real estate debt – and using their experience to create elegant software to transform our entire industry.
