Jigsaw Investment Enhanced Income Fund – JIEIF
In the current market real estate investors and business owners need access to efficient, reliable, low friction debt to take advantage of investment opportunities. Jigsaw Investment Partners provides private lending solutions of either senior or junior secured mortgage loans. The opportunity with second mortgage loans is a higher rate of return with low loan to values (LTV) behind senior mortgages that are longer term, low fixed rates and generally include impounds for taxes and insurance. In general borrowers have taken advantage of the sustained low rate environment brought about by the mortgage crisis 10 years ago. These borrowers may have attractive first mortgages but still need access to equity.
Attractive yield – JIEIF originates secured real estate loans with a typical interest rate of 9.50% – 12.50%. Through the use of moderate leverage the fund seeks to generate consistent yields in the 8-10% range
Built in Margin Of Safety – JIEIF maintains a diversified loan portfolio secured by real property with typical loan to value ratios of less than 65%. Furthermore, as a private debt vehicle the fund is insulated from public market volatility and global macroeconomic events.
Short Maturities Limit Interest Rate Risk – Fund loans typically mature in 6 – 12 months limiting interest rate risk and market valuation pressures.
