Seeking equity level returns with debt levels of risk.

Fairview Partners is an established debt fund manager with a focus on the purchase and origination of senior secured real estate loans. We have over a decade of experience in credit analysis, valuation, and portfolio construction on behalf of our investors. Our competitive advantage is our ability to navigate the complex issues common to distressed credits and special situations. 

We target investments in opaque markets benefitting from active management and employ credit structures intended to achieve equity level returns with debt levels of risk.
