EverWest launched its Structured Finance platform in 2013 with the addition of Tom McCahill, a 30+ year veteran in structured real estate finance and Joe Chickey, a 16+ year veteran of subordinated debt investing and fund management. EverWest’s platform focuses on originating and managing mezzanine debt, preferred equity financing and B-notes for commercial properties and developments throughout the U.S.
The Structured Finance team is supported by EverWest’s long standing track record as an institutional real estate investment manager and operator. EverWest’s broader operating platform, and regionally-focused acquisition specialists, provide a competitive advantage, particularly with its established relationships with local sponsors and banks.
EverWest typically targets loan types that it believes are currently underserved by existing lenders - for example, smaller loan sizes, longer term maturities, non-recourse, subordinated construction financing, repositions, etc.
