About Us

A Trusted Investor for Value-oriented Stockholders

Granite Point Mortgage Trust Inc. is a long-term, fundamental value-oriented investor that operates as a real estate investment trust. We’re internally managed and focus on floating-rate, senior first mortgage loans secured by institutional quality, value-add properties.

We have built a strong and defensive investment portfolio that preserves capital while generating attractive returns over the long term, primarily through dividends generated by income from our current loan portfolio.

With a veteran and highly flexible team, we can quickly adjust our investment strategy to target opportunities. Our strengths have allowed us to navigate multiple cycles of economic and market turbulence effectively.

A Direct Origination Platform Targeting Attractive Loans

Our senior originators have 15-25+ years of experience, and have built strong relationships with a wide variety of market participants, including owners/operators, private equity funds, family offices and mortgage brokers.

Leveraging a Wealth of Relationships

We directly source a broad array of potential investment opportunities from which we select the best investments for our portfolio.  Over our team’s long tenure in the industry, we have developed relationships with a wide range of market participants and typically have multiple touchpoints on any particular transaction.  Since our founding in 2015, our team has evaluated and sourced tens of billions of dollars of potential opportunities and selectively closed on over $7 billion.

Executing a Highly Disciplined Sourcing Process

We’ve developed a rigorous sourcing process that emphasizes timely and reliable feedback to our counterparties and allows us to select the best investments for our portfolio. We have an efficient feedback loop between various functional areas such as origination/underwriting, finance/capital markets and legal to insure a smooth closing process with all of our counterparties. As a result, a large part of our business involves repeat business with our borrowers.

Coordinating Timely, Comprehensive Asset Management

Our asset management process is designed to track our investments on a timely basis and quickly identify any potential variances from the business plan. In addition, our team is responsible for reviewing operating and capital budgets, approving leases and maintaining an on-going dialogue with our borrowers.

Growing an Attractive Investment Portfolio

Our investors appreciate our comprehensive and rigorous investment selection approach. We execute a differentiated origination strategy and invest in the most attractive opportunities to continue to expand and diversify our durable portfolio.
