About Arno Capital Investments

Arno Capital Investments is a leading investment company that provides diverse real estate project financing solutions in Israel. The company offers customized financing solutions for land acquisition, asset-swap, urban renewal and government-price-capped transactions.

The main financing solutions that the company offers are senior credit (a substitute for bank credit) for accompanying the construction process, mezzanine loans and credit against real estate collaterals.

Israel’s largest public fund in the real estate finance industry

Arno Capital Investments started operating in late 2013, on the back of growing difficulties of small and medium real-estate entrepreneurs to receive credit from the banking system. In its early years, the company’s operating model was based on limited private partnerships financing model, until it received the Israeli Securities Authorities’ approval to raise funds from the public in accordance with a prospectus. Following this approval, Arno Capital Investments established the public fund Arno Real Estate, and over the past couple of years this fund became the company’s flagship fund. The REIT is registered in the TASE’s Nesher (non-marketable securities) systems, and is highly accessible to investors for monitoring their investments, through accounts both in the various members of the stock exchange and in banks.

A Collateralized Debt Fund

Arno Capital Investments provides closed-end financing, i.e. a strict financial support with hard limits for every investment and clear criteria for receiving the funds (similar to the customary financing model of the banking system). In order to protect the investors’ funds, Arno Real Estate operates as a pure debt fund and backs its loans with mortgages and bank accounts pledges of the projects` companies. The company’s current portfolio amounts to about NIS 420M (of which NIS 250M in the framework of Arno Real Estate).

Accompanying and Supporting the Developers

As aforementioned, Arno Capital Investments is a pure debt fund,  without participation in the developers’ profits, which provides tailored financing and enables equity extraction during the project after the sales goals have been met. Developers which contract with Arno Capital benefit from professional service from a company that lives and breathes its projects, and understands the constraints and unexpected events that charctherize the real estate field.

An Executive Team with Real Estate Expertise

The company’s executive team consists of accountants, lawyers and senior financial advisors with extensive experience in managing real estate ventures. The team’s cumulative know-how and experience, and  Arno’s experts capability to achieve a profound understanding of each project and its entrepreneurial, financial, planning and legal requirements and characteristics, create substantial added value for the developer in the professional planning and management of each project.

In addition to the company’s executive team, the operations are supervised by the fund’s chairman, Mr. Dror Nagel, and the external directors Mr. Moshe Gaon, Mr. Amit Berger and the independent director Mr. Shlomi Nakash (who served as Ayalon’s Head of Non-Marketable Credit).
