On this episode, Alpha Capital CRE Managing Director Trisha Connolly joins Phil to discuss building the capital stacks, money, and the various types of financing and equity investments available. Alpha Capital CRE started in 2008 as a hedge fund placement agent firm raising institutional capital for fund to funds. In 2010, Alpha Capital transitioned to a capital markets platform. Since its inception, the company has changed its name, institutionalized its platform, and grown its team. They optimize solutions for capital, whether it’s debt or equity, for transactions across the country.

Phil and Trisha start by discussing what goes into a capital stack. They touch on what a bridge lender may provide in commercial real estate, why the 30-year mortgage is often an afterthought in this space, and the types of debt with flexibility in a future sale. Phil also asks Trisha about the influence of local banks in her work, as well as her depth of relationships in the national lending community. Phil and Trisha close out the interview by going into the details of creating a development deal, subordinate financing, and the concept of preferred equity.
