Fund Philosophy 

​The fund provides financing secured by real estate to consumers, builders, developers and investors for various real properties, primarily in Arizona and secondarily in California, Nevada and Florida

Strategy & Objectives

The strategy of the fund is to create a portfolio of small balance real estate mortgage loans to produce attractive risk adjusted returns.


The fund’s objectives are to deploy the proceeds of this offering in qualified fund assets (described below) that will be intended to:

  • Preserve and protect each member’s and note holder’s contributed investor capital;

  • Provide the members with a preferred return of 9% per annum [on contributed but unreturned capital] and additional distributions which will endeavor to produce overall annualized returns to members in the range of 10% to 12%; and

The fund will provide financing secured in first lien position to consumers, builders, developers, and investors for the acquisition of various real properties. This will include, but is not limited to: owner occupied residential, construction, non-owner occupied residential rehab, bridge, lot, commercial, construction, and horizontal lot development financing (collectively the “mortgage loans”). The fund will focus on originating mortgage loans with a primary focus in Arizona, secondarily the states of California, Nevada and Florida, and will consider loans selectively nationwide.


The manager of the fund will be Tradewinds Management, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company (the “manager” or “TM”). TM will also represent the note holders as the note holder representative.  The principals of TM are Brad Anderson and Wayne Anderson. Brad Anderson and Wayne Anderson are principals of A&A Funding Corporation, an Arizona corporation (“A&A” or the “originator”).   


Based in Phoenix Arizona, A & A Funding Corp is the origination arm for Tradewinds Capital Fund II. Founded in 1982, we have originated thousands of hard money loans and are one of the oldest private money lenders in Arizona


The manager has initially engaged Fairway America, LLC, an experienced and long-time fund manager as well as fund advisory, consulting, administration and servicing firm, to provide the fund with professional administration in the areas of financial statement preparation, investor subscriptions and redemptions, and other back-office administration functions. Fairway America has the relevant infrastructure, resources and experience that are expected to significantly assist the fund and manager in the professional administration of the fund. The cost of these services will be a fund expense.
