AVANA Mortgage Funds provide flexibility to accredited investors, institutional investors, and family offices. We empower our investors to earn a predictable fixed income, paid out on a monthly basis, by investing in a portfolio of commercial mortgages that are secured by real estate that is owned and operated by small businesses across America. Our goal is to make sure our mortgage fund is easy to understand. As Peter Lynch said, “Never invest in any idea you cannot illustrate with a crayon.”
AVANA holds mortgages on commercial real estate properties owned and occupied by American small and mid-sized businesses in specific niche industries.

AVANA Mortgage Fund platform provides investors with short-term and long-term mortgage investment opportunities. All loans that are extended by our fund to potential borrowers follow the same strict lending principles that are followed by most established and respected banks. We conduct site inspections, real estate valuations and reviews, environmental reviews, borrower background and credit checks, management evaluations, and property due diligence, and we use legal counsel to document all loans in our portfolio. These loans are then offered as a portfolio to our investors, so that every dollar invested is well-diversified and spread across multiple states, various business sizes, and a combination of short-term and long-term loans. There are several other factors that affect your decision to invest in commercial real estate mortgages, and we encourage you to become highly informed about all the key aspects that we look at before funding each loan.
