SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--AlphaFlow, a leading technology platform for institutional investment in real estate debt, today announced a minority equity investment from New York Mortgage Trust, Inc. (Nasdaq: NYMT).
AlphaFlow has worked directly with NYMT in recent years to provide NYMT with access to private real estate lenders across the country, particularly in the business purpose loan-space. The investment underscores the strategic focus of AlphaFlow’s leadership in delivering institutional-quality products to local lenders.
“While technology continues to drive efficiencies across a number of consumer categories, stubbornly high transaction costs persist in real estate and its derivative credit markets. At AlphaFlow, we are shrinking the timescale and exogenous factors that plague the asset backed credit markets. A deep understanding of the regulatory environment, incumbent habitual patterns, capital markets, and technological factors are required to simultaneously move all the pieces necessary for success,” says Noah Martin, President of AlphaFlow.
AlphaFlow has built a best-in-class technology platform to deliver institutional capital to non-bank lenders looking to provide financing for real estate investors. AlphaFlow currently plans to use the new funds to enhance its core product and launch a new financing platform this summer. NYMT is joined by other notable investors in this funding, including Steve Cohen’s Point72 Ventures, Rebel Fund, and Gaingels.
“We are thrilled that NYMT has chosen to invest in our platform as we embark on this next stage of growth for our company and the private lending market,” said Ray Sturm, co-founder and CEO of AlphaFlow.
AlphaFlow is a technology platform that connects two sizable industries: real estate debt and the capital markets. The company is one of the nation’s leading providers of capital to the real estate private debt market that is focused on bridge and residential rental loans. The firm’s clients include a number of large institutional investors. AlphaFlow was established in 2015 and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
