First Trust Deed Investing
Diversify Your Portfolio
WHY FIRST TRUST DEED INVESTING
Professional single family home renovators have special requirements, such as short funding timelines, that traditional institutional lenders are unwilling to accommodate. This provides an opportunity for private lenders who cater to this market to command premiums on their capital. In today’s market Arixa’s lending funds generate current income from 7-10%.
Arixa’s loans are secured by a first lien on a house. Borrowers typically provide 20%-25% of the capital needed to buy the house. Additionally professional developers enhance the value of the collateral through renovations that they fund with their own equity.
Real estate including real estate debt is an important component of a well diversified portfolio. An allocation to first trust deeds can reduce overall portfolio volatility and increase returns, as first trust deeds are not well correlated with either the stock or bond markets.

Our Investment Philosophy
KEY CONSIDERATIONS FOR OUR INVESTMENT FUNDS
Frequently, we would rather give up some of the “upside” of an investment in order to limit our risk. We are fundamentally risk-averse, long-term focused investors.
We like strategies that are more difficult to execute for larger investment management companies, which allow us to earn above average returns for our investors. Excessive amounts of capital ruin good investment opportunities so we avoid highly competitive markets whenever possible.
We seek to invest where we see undervalued assets (such as buying homes from banks in the wake of the financial crisis); however, we do not pursue investments whose returns are based on the timing of a recovery in asset values, which we consider too hard to predict and too volatile.
EXPERTISE IN NICHE
We seek to make investments in products, people and markets that we know well. This allows us to have a strong point of view about value, risks and the potential rewards of each investment.
We actively pursue a deep understanding of long term demographic and housing trends and to take advantage of these trends when we invest. One such trend is the increased demand among Millennials to live in more urban areas areas with shorter commutes rather than having a larger home and yard with a longer commute. We also see a limited supply of high-quality properties in very desirable urban neighborhoods where demand is strongest. Our point of view on these trends drives many of our real estate investment decisions.
When necessary to serve our customers, we are willing to build out infrastructure and to develop vertically-integrated platforms. This goes hand-in-hand with serving harder to reach niche markets and making a large number of smaller investments.
At the same time, we aim to remain nimble enough to change our investment strategy as the market changes. This may mean returning capital to our investors in one fund and launching new funds as market opportunities disappear in one area and emerge in other niches.
