ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Procida Funding & Advisors, LLC, the exclusive fund manager of the 100 Mile Fund announced that it achieved a 14.39% return to its investors in 2012. The 100 Mile Fund, which launched in October of 2011, had a solid opening year having participated in the purchase of over $100,000,000 of non-performing loans, as well as the origination of construction and bridge loans throughout New York and New Jersey.
The fund distributes all of its realized gains so investors receive a cash distribution of $14,800 for every $100,000 investment unit.
The 100 Mile Fund is able to make their returns through the purchase of b-notes and junior participation's in bridge and construction loans. Procida typically originates the loan and sells off the senior piece to a bank or insurance company and the fund retains the junior participation or the "b" piece. The 100 Mile Fund has invested in most asset classes throughout the tri-state area.
"We simply fill the void; every deal has some bankable component. We do the rest. So for a borrower who needs a quick closing or has a complex deal we will typically take it down ourselves then sell off a senior piece after we've reduced the risk," said Billy Procida, President & CEO of Procida Funding.
Some recent projects for Procida and The 100 Mile Fund include; Riverwood Chase, 200 new townhomes in Toms River, NJ with Ryan Homes, the completion of Freehold Commons office building in Freehold, NJ, and a new Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Randolph, NJ.
The 100 Mile Fund is currently open to accredited investors and anticipates the fund will complete $100,000,000 of loans and investments in 2013.
