Greta Guggenheim, CEO of TPG RE Finance Trust, stated: “We maintained our strong origination pace in the second quarter, closing $332 million of quality first mortgage loans. We did so while simultaneously working toward our July IPO, which is a testament to the strength of our team and the quality of our loan pipeline.”
She adds that “With the IPO successfully concluded, we are entirely focused on loan originations and further reducing our cost of funds. With an enlarged and strengthened capital base we expect to make deeper inroads in the large-loan commercial mortgage market nationally. We are pleased with our originations pace and are rigorously evaluating a $3.0 billion loan pipeline for more quality originations. In this environment, we expect our concentration on property-specific dynamics and our strict adherence to rigorous credit standards will continue to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns to our shareholders.”
