Lotus Capital Partners.
Lotus Capital Partners, an independent real estate investment bank led by Faisal Ashraf, has launched a loan sale and distribution business that will serve lenders and investors looking to de-risk and leverage their positions in whole loans, A-notes, and mezzanine debt.
Ashraf has recruited Tim Taylor to lead the initiative. Taylor has spent the better part of 20 years in the debt/distribution space and I has transacted with more than I 100 firms while leading teams at Merrill Lynch, Cantor Commercial Real Estate (CCRE) and, most recently, Ten-X as its Head of Special Situations.
While working together at CCRE, Taylor and Ashraf led one of Wall Street's most productive distribution teams, transacting more than $4 billion dollars in private placements during a three-year run.
