Pelorus is an asset-based lender that provides secured term loans, through a private mortgage mREIT to a special class of property owners with cannabis use tenants who cannot obtain traditional real estate loans due to the dislocation of the capital markets caused by Federal Regulations.

Pelorus understands the rare alignment of opportunities unfolding within the cannabis real estate market and has built its team to capitalize on this opportunity. Additionally, we are increasing our Fund offering from 100M to 250M, based upon the increased demand for our loan product which has brought high cash flowing yields to our investors since the fund’s inception in 2018.

We are able to offer a competitive management fees of 1% and have historically achieved consistently high yield returns because of our revenue alignment between the Manager (GP) and the Fund Members (LPs) with our Fund structure, whereby the Manager shares fees paid by borrowers with our Fund Members, thus passing on higher returns.



The Pelorus principles have a combined experience of closing over $1 billion in value-add real estate capital and 5,000 transactions.
