What our customers say

I have been an investor with Marquee Funding for over 20 years, and investing in hard money real estate loans for close to 40 years. I have worked with many different hard money groups over the years and find that Marquee offers the best in attention to detail, underwriting concerns, servicing and ultimately overall customer service. Investing with Marquee feels safer to me than having money in the bank and certainly pays substantially more yield on my investment. If you are a seasoned investor or just starting to invest in real estate secured investments I would highly recommend Marquee Funding Group.

Amazing experience with these guys. Terrible personal circumstances. Lost the house in a wildfire just before completion. These guys stood by me, allowed me another 18 months to rebuild. Worked with the insurance company. Really saved me from financial ruin. Just used them again for another project. Funded me in under 10 days. Ask for RJ, he’ll take great care of you.

FAQs about private lending investing opportunities

Why is private debt becoming a growing investment opportunity?

Financial advisors increasingly recommend these alternative investment opportunities because their clients often see higher returns than public funds while mitigating risks, earning fixed income, tapping into sound real estate investing, and even getting unique tax benefits.

Opportunities to finance private debt are growing as borrowers look for unique lending options to fit their wide array of needs. Institutional lending organizations like banks have to follow strict requirements that don’t always meet these needs and are often slow to close deals.

As the demand for flexible financing grows, there is more opportunity to invest in private debt to tap into the range of offerings private lenders provide, benefiting both borrowers and investors.

What are the downside protections of a Private Mortgage REIT?

Private mREITs offer more downside protection compared to bonds. They protect against market downturns and offer an alternative investment opportunity for those looking to balance risk and diversify their portfolios.

The Marquee Capital Fund 1 relies on stringent borrower equity requirements that offer protection against market volatility. We use capital structure seniority for lower risk and higher priority for repayment. Loans financed by Marquee Funding Group are fully secured by high quality collateral, all of which make our private mortgage REIT low-risk to investors.

What are the liquidity considerations for a Mortgage REIT?

Over the long-term, private mortgage REITs hold well, potentially reaping higher returns as the real estate market matures. They are not correlated to the stock market or bond market and are less liquid than stocks so they see fewer volatile fluctuations in performance.

For Marquee Capital Fund 1 there is a 2-year lock-up for your investment before withdrawal is available to maintain stability.

Rather than trade shares daily, private mREITs earn passive income that requires less hands-on management.

What are the tax benefits of Investing in a Mortgage Fund?

Investors are entitled to a Qualified Business Income Deduction earned from trusts, including from REIT dividends. 

Marquee Capital Fund 1 elects REIT status to deduct 20% of qualified REIT dividends from income tax returns so investors only pay taxes on 80% of dividends earned.

In addition to this direct benefit, a private mortgage REIT also provides the benefits of real estate investing without having to manage the legal and financial aspects of lending directly to borrowers. Investors avoid acting as property managers so don’t need to pay property taxes, purchase home insurance, or manage any other expenses of real estate investing.

What disadvantages are associated with private lending investments?

Private lending investments come with risks if the lending itself isn’t sound. The main concern is that borrowers go into default on their loans and the money invested in their financing is at risk for investors. This is a result of poor underwriting. Often private lenders don’t use detailed qualification requirements to approve and finance loans.

Marquee Funding Group team has more than 30 years of experience in private lending and ensures that the detailed process to secure a loan with us benefits the borrower as much as it does our investors, preventing potential defaults. If a borrower does default, we use the same remedies as traditional banks to take the necessary steps toward foreclosure.  

We fund private loans that are flexible but not speculative. Rather than close and churn deals, we finance responsible investments. Our full-circle servicing adheres to the highest auditing standards, with the same level of duty of care and fiduciary responsibility investors get from publicly traded funds.

How can I view and manage investments with Marquee Funding Group?

Marquee Capital Fund 1 is on the Fidelity platform, which allows Registered Investment Advisors and investors to view the investment in their Fidelity portfolios.

Our Investor Portal also allows you to login to our Marquee Capital Fund 1 portal and Platinum Loan Servicing for further visibility.
