Oaktree funds Arixa Capital to meet real estate financing demands

Arixa Capital (“Arixa”) announces the expansion of its joint venture with funds managed by Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. (“Oaktree”) to originate senior secured loans backed by residential real estate.

Launched in August 2023 with an initial USD 100 million commitment, this strategic partnership addresses the growing demand for real estate financing amid a market pullback by banks and private lenders. To meet this demand, Arixa and Oaktree are committing an additional USD 100 million, with the potential to leverage these funds through a credit facility structured to help enhance returns and increase deployment capacity.

“Our focus on reliable capital access, rapid execution, and exceptional customer service has driven substantial deal flow, with our pipeline at its highest level to date,” said Seth Davis, Managing Director of Arixa Capital. “With the support of Oaktree, Arixa can expand its capacity to serve highly experienced and financially sound clients who are seeking reliable alternatives to the regional and community banking sector.”

“Arixa Capital has proven to be a trusted partner for Oaktree over the past year, strategically deploying capital, maintaining strong credit quality, and delivering attractive returns,” said Jason Keller, Managing Director and Head of Residential Investments for Oaktree’s Real Estate group. “We are excited to expand our commitment to this joint venture and support the growth of Arixa’s lending program.”

Arixa Capital was founded in 2006 and provides senior secured, short-term loans for the acquisition, renovation, and/or construction of investment properties. Arixa has originated over $4 billion in loans since inception and is well-positioned to capitalize on the multi-billion-dollar funding gap in residential real estate financing, exacerbated by ongoing credit market disruptions.

“We are excited to deepen our partnership with Oaktree and support our growing client base,” said Gregory Hebner, Managing Director of Arixa Capital. “Our mission is to back exceptional real estate investors, developers, and builders who create substantial value with their investment projects and enable Arixa to consistently deliver attractive returns to our investors, even in this volatile interest rate environment.”
