Actium gives accredited investors the opportunity to earn attractive asset-backed returns

Real Estate Loan Income Funds

The Actium team started making loans secured by real estate in 2004. They opened their activities to outside investors with the Actium High Yield Loan Fund (Fund I) in 2014. Due to the success of Funds I, II, which was opened in 2014, and III (2015), Actium has recently launched Actium High Yield Loan Fund IV.

Our loans are usually written with a maturity of one year with historical interest rates of 11-12% plus origination fees.

*The IRR for an investment is the interest rate at which the net present value of cash flows would equal zero. Individual returns varied due to size of investment (Actium Funds have a graduated fee structure), impact of audit fees in each fund and different fee structures. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. This only compares returns since inception with returns of other investments. These results reflect the returns of the non-managing members of each Fund.

Investment Approach

Actium makes loans secured by first-position liens on real estate. We provide accredited investors with returns combining the characteristics of other fixed-income assets and the protection of real estate collateral.

Our borrowers are companies or individuals with real estate collateral who have limited access to traditional credit markets due to an urgent need, lack of relationships or uneven cash flow.

Actium Advantage

Proven track record over a decade Details
Actium has carefully underwritten real estate loans since it started in 2004. We believe we have navigated economic cycles by focusing on the value of the real estate pledged as collateral. By performing thorough due diligence we aim to maintain a margin of safety between the value of the collateral and the loan amount. Return
Attractive fee structure Details
We charge a 1% management fee and 20% of the net profits of the Fund. Investors committing amounts of $300,000 or greater are charged reduced fees. Return
All origination, renewal, late fees and other fees go to the Fund Details
Most loan fund managers retain the fees associated with a loan for themselves. These fees can be as much as several percentage points per year. Actium feels this is a potential conflict of interest. To avoid conflicts, Actium accounts for fees the same way it does loan interest earned by the Fund. Return
Opportunity to invest retirement assets Details
Actium may accept investments from retirement accounts. Return
Transparency to Investors Details
Investors are provided with quarterly reports of the Fund’s operations. The Fund is also audited annually by an outside accounting firm and the audit report is sent to investors. Return
Targeted return of 10-11% Details
While there can be no guarantee of results, we target our loan interest rates and fees so that investors of our real estate loan income funds could receive a return of 10-11% per annum. Return
