Greenwich, CT (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Corigin Capital, LLC Managing Director, Greg Gleason headlined the Ivy Family Office Network Greenwich, CT Forum with a discussion on “Finding Yield in a ZIRP Environment.” The Forum was held on January 24th in Greenwich, CT.
According to Mr. Gleason, “There is currently a large opportunity in the New York City Metropolitan area to acquire first mortgage bridge loans and non-performing debt secured by commercial properties. Many of these loans are available from lending institutions that need to divest assets. Corigin sees tremendous opportunities to realize returns against assets that are below intrinsic values.”
In many cases, banks have provided limited marketing and there is a smaller buying audience for these types of assets. The ability to be flexible and provide multiple paths such as restructuring, note re-sale and property level execution are key to generating the best results. The nature of these loans is generally short term with compelling risk adjusted metrics.”
Mr. Gleason is Managing Director of Corigin Capital, where he is responsible for overseeing the investment sourcing, underwriting and asset management operations. Prior to joining Corigin, Mr. Gleason held various positions in opportunistic real estate acquisitions and asset management at DLJ Real Estate Capital Partners (DLJ), a $4 billion global real estate private equity manager. During his tenure at DLJ, Mr. Gleason participated in the investment of over $400 million of the fund’s equity capital, including bridge lending, distressed debt, securitized debt, preferred equity, and development joint venture equity transactions.
He graduated from Emory University with a BA in Economics and has been a CFA Charterholder since 2007. Mr. Gleason previously served as a member of the Board of Directors for the Real Estate Finance Association (REFA) in Boston.
