“We are pleased with our strong performance this quarter, driven by significant contributions from each of our business segments. Despite a volatile market backdrop in the first half of the year, including an uncertain domestic economic and geopolitical environment, we deployed $2.5 billion of capital and continued to source investments with attractive returns and a risk profile consistent with our historical standards. In our seven years as a public company, we have not realized a single credit loss in the $19.0 billion of loans we have originated or acquired. As a testament to our conservative underwriting, our loan portfolio continues to maintain a conservative weighted average LTV of 61.9%, which is down from a peak of 67.8% in 2011 when our loan book was one-third the size it is now. We are particularly pleased with the progress of our equity investments, including those embedded in our loan book, where we continue to expect meaningful appreciation over time,” stated Barry Sternlicht, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Starwood Property Trust.
