Transaction illustrates continual investor confidence in Kiavi and RTL asset class performance 

SAN FRANCISCO – Aug. 7, 2023Kiavi, a leading provider of financing to real estate investors, today announced it closed an approximately $200 million, 24-month-term revolving securitization of unrated residential transition loans (“RTLs”). This is Kiavi’s 13th RTL transaction under its LHOME shelf since it began its securitization program in 2019, bringing the company’s total issuance to more than $3 billion in offered notes.

The securitization includes offered notes in three classes, A1, A2, and M, all of which were sold. The deal includes a two-year revolving period, during which principal payoffs can be reinvested in purchasing additional newly originated loans. 

“In a year of macroeconomic uncertainty, underscored by the dynamic interest rate environment and tight housing market, we’re thrilled to announce yet another securitization,” said Arvind Mohan, Chief Executive Officer, Kiavi. “Deals like this not only demonstrate our leadership position in the private lending space, but also highlight our track record and partnership with institutional investors as well as their continual confidence in Kiavi’s underwriting and loan management capabilities,” he added. 

In the first half of 2023, Kiavi funded more than $2 billion in loan volume to real estate investors. This included more than 7,300 fix-and-flip and rental property loans to 2,500 customers. Kiavi continues to scale its product suite, most recently by significantly growing its rental portfolio loan product and expanding into financing rental condominium units

“Kiavi remains committed to supporting our customers as they do the important work of creating move-in ready homes and rental housing for millions of Americans. We look forward to continuing to expand our products and innovate our platform to serve the evolving needs of real estate investors across the nation,” Mohan concluded.
