W Financial Fund
Gregg Winter founded W Financial Fund, LP in 2003, creating a new platform after 14 years of successfully syndicating individual mortgage loans among groups of private investors. W Financial is a direct, private real estate bridge lender primarily focused on the NYC market which originates dozens of loans per year in the $1 million to $30 million range. Most of W’s loans are first mortgages and finance the acquisition and often the rehab of multifamily and mixed-use, value-add real estate opportunities. Most often, our borrowers execute their business plan increasing a property’s NOI and then, once stabilized, they seek to replace W’s bridge loans with conventional financing. The fund is known by borrowers and mortgage brokers for its high reliability, its flexibility and for its rapid response to complex and time-of-the-essence loan requests. W Financial’s 14-year track record and performance have been noted by and profiled in Barron’s and other publications. The fund’s structure has allowed more than 500 qualified, high-net-worth and family office investors to benefit from enjoying diversification by participating in a carefully curated and managed loan portfolio.
During Q2 2017, W’s Investment Manager, Sag Harbor Capital Management, LLC, a Registered Investment Advisor, is launching the Alternative Opportunities Fund – a new real estate private equity fund focused on acquiring multifamily and mixed-use, value-add real estate in partnership with proven, joint-venture operating partners.
