Colony Financial, Inc., a real estate investment and finance company, focuses on acquiring, originating, and managing various real estate-related debt and equity investments. The company is externally managed and advised by Colony Financial Manager, LLC (the manager). The company’s investment portfolio and target assets are primarily composed of interests in real estate and real estate-related debt, including loans acquired at a discount to par in the secondary market and new originations; and real estate equity, including single family homes held as rental investment properties. Segments The company operates in three segments, Real Estate Debt Investments, SFR Rentals and Other Real Estate Equity Investments. Real Estate Debt Investments This segment includes its investments in originated and acquired commercial real estate debt, mortgage-backed securities, and other debt-related investments. SFR Rentals This segment represents the company’s investment in CAH Operating Partnership, L.P. (CAH OP). Other Real Estate Equity Investments This segment includes real estate acquired in settlement of loans, common equity in real estate or related companies, and certain preferred equity investments with profit participation meeting certain risk or return profiles. Target Assets Loan Acquisitions: The acquisition of mortgage loans, or portfolios of mortgage loans, secured by first or second liens on commercial properties, including office buildings, industrial or warehouse properties, hotels, retail properties, apartments and properties within other commercial real estate sectors, which may include performing, sub-performing and non-performing loans. In particular, the company has invested and intends to continue to invest in portfolios of commercial whole loans acquired from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, other governmental agencies and financial institutions. In some cases, the company may also acquire a pari passu or junior participation in a whole loan. Mortgage Loan Originations: In some cases, the company may originate and fund a first mortgage loan with the intention of structuring and selling a senior tranche (A-note) and retaining the subordinated tranche (B-note). In other cases, it may co-originate and fund a B-note alongside another lender who co-originates and contemporaneously funds the A-note. The company may also seek to finance a mortgage loan or loan participation with non-recourse, matched term financing either individually or by contributing a loan into a pooled securitized financing structure. Mezzanine Loans: The origination or acquisition of loans made to property owners that are subordinate to mortgage debt and are typically secured by pledges of the borrower's ownership interests in the property and/or direct or indirect entities that own the property. Preferred Equity: The origination or acquisition of a preferred equity investment in an existing or to-be-built commercial property or portfolio of commercial real estate, typically structured to receive cash distributions in seniority to a more junior class of equity. Equity interests may be subordinate to other forms of mortgage or property-level debt. Preferred equity may have a pay requirement or an ability to accrue the preferred return but in the latter case, accruals usually must be paid current prior to distributions to the more junior equity class. Common Equity: Investment in the common equity of an existing or to-be-built commercial property or portfolio of commercial real estate, typically targeting a higher yielding, opportunistic strategy to reposition, recapitalize, renovate or otherwise stabilize the underlying property or properties. The company may also include third-party operating and/or other financial partners in these transactions. Real Estate Platforms: Investment in real estate operating platforms that typically are focused on specific property types and/or geographic markets with management teams. These real estate operating platforms may raise equity capital from other investors or limited partners and the company’s investment would typically involve taking an ownership sta
