Genesis Bank Announces Partnership With Basis Investment Group

Represents First Time a Minority Depository Institution Has Partnered With an Agency Licensed Seller/Servicer and Certified Minority and Women-Owned Business

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#Bank–Genesis Bank (“Genesis” or the “Bank”), announced today that it has entered into a partnership agreement with Basis Investment Group (“Basis”), a national commercial real estate debt and equity investment platform. Basis is a Freddie Mac Seller/Servicer and is designated as a certified Minority and Women-Owned Business (“MWOB”). As one of only two diverse, multiracial Minority Depository Institutions (“MDI”) in the U.S., the partnership between Genesis and Basis provides both entities with a unique opportunity to leverage their commercial real estate platforms to generate business, while making a deeper impact in the majority minority communities across Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, and San Bernardino Counties, California (“Target Markets”). The partnership focuses on providing Genesis with additional access to capital, products, and resources under Basis’ robust platform. Through Genesis’ management team’s extensive track record originating, servicing, and managing multi-billion dollar portfolios of multifamily loans at multiple financial institutions, across multiple decades, the partnership broadens the Bank’s opportunities to leverage its vast network, resources, and capabilities, by bolstering its multifamily financing products and services.

Stephen H. Gordon, Founding Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “Our partnership with Basis embodies so many important pillars of our respective organizations — to successfully operate a robust, industry leading platform of commercial real estate financing products, services, and solutions, while also supporting historically underserved minority communities. Despite our distinct business models, we share a common strategic focus on providing multifamily financing in densely populated, low- to moderate-income, majority minority, workforce-oriented census tracts. As this partnership represents the first time an MDI has partnered with an agency licensed Seller/Servicer MWOB, we proudly look forward to furthering our impact in the communities we serve across our Target Markets.”

Tammy K. Jones, Chief Executive Officer and Co-Founder of Basis, stated, “Two minority platforms, like Basis and Genesis combining forces to provide access to capital and credit is powerful. We are proud to partner with one of the only diverse, multi-racial MDIs, whose mission aligns with ours — lending in communities that are often overlooked by majority providers — and the social impact and wealth generation this access to capital creates. Through our alliance, Genesis will have access to our additional multifamily and CRE lending products, uniquely positioning them to better serve their diverse client base.”
