Toorak Capital Partners Closes Inaugural Rated Single-family Rental Securitization
Toorak Capital Partners ("Toorak"), a leading correspondent real estate loan investment platform, today announced the successful closing of a $224.3 million securitization backed by 30-year single-family rental property loans. This is the first Toorak securitization transaction to carry ratings from S&P and KBRA. The offering received strong investor demand and was oversubscribed.
Toorak's securitization, TRK 2021-INV1 Trust, is collateralized by business purpose, rental investment property loans that were underwritten using debt service coverage ratios (DSCRs) and aggregated by Toorak. It represents the first investor DSCR transaction issued through the TRK shelf.
The securitization consists of 1,092 first lien, fixed- and adjustable-rate, fully amortizing, and interest-only residential mortgage loans secured primarily by 1-4 unit residences. Borrowers in TRK 2021-INV1 possess a weighted average (WA) credit score of 722. The pool's mortgaged properties exhibit a WA DSCR of 1.39x and a WA original loan-to-value (LTV) ratio of 71.7%.
"Toorak's entry into the investor rental market is a natural extension of our position in the residential bridge loan market," said Toorak Chief Executive Officer John Beacham. "The loans are underwritten based on rental income rather than wage income, in line with commercial real estate practice in the US and common practice in many international markets, such as the UK buy-to-let market."
"In addition to providing an attractive financing alternative for landlords, we are proud that the significant majority of properties that back the loans in the portfolio are affordable to renters earning typical incomes in their respective neighborhoods," John added.

In addition to residential bridge loans, Toorak's lending platform offers financing options for construction and long-term single-family rental projects.
