About Us

Claros Mortgage Trust, Inc. (NYSE: CMTG) is a real estate investment trust that is focused primarily on originating senior and subordinate loans on transitional commercial real estate assets located in major markets across the U.S.

Our objective is to be a premier provider of debt capital and, in so doing, to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for our stockholders. We strive to create a diversified investment portfolio of CRE loans that we generally intend to hold to maturity. Our “ownership mindset” investment philosophy enables us to act as a true capital partner to borrowers, underwriting complex business plans to provide flexible financing solutions that are highly responsive to borrower needs while also enabling us to hold borrowers accountable for achieving agreed upon milestones.

CMTG is externally managed and advised by Claros REIT Management LP, an affiliate of Mack Real Estate Credit Strategies, L.P. (“MRECS”). MRECS is the CRE lending and debt investment business affiliated with Mack Real Estate Group, LLC (“MREG”), an established real estate developer, investor and manager.

Key Investment Highlights

  • Established, scaled and integrated platform with a substantial portion of our investments located in MSAs in which MREG has experience and/or infrastructure. We believe our “ownership-oriented” mindset enhances our capabilities to underwrite, structure and proactively manage transitional CRE loans.
  • Differentiated investment strategy primarily focused on larger opportunities ranging from $50 million to $300 million, secured by high-quality, transitional CRE assets with experienced and well-capitalized sponsorship.
  • Diversified loan portfolio with stable, attractive yields. We construct our portfolio seeking to underwrite execution risk (the risk that a borrower will fail to execute its intended business plan) and avoid basis risk (the risk of a material impairment of our loan due to the borrower over leveraging the collateral for the loan or otherwise.)
  • Experienced management team with extensive equity and credit investment expertise, with several decades of experience investing through multiple economic cycles.
