This week Anne and Nick are back with a new episode with special guest John Mazarakis, Co-Founder and Chairman at Chicago Atlantic, a market-leading publicly traded commercial mortgage REIT utilizing significant real estate, credit and cannabis expertise to originate senior secured loans primarily to state-licensed cannabis operators in limited-license states in the U.S.
John co-leads Chicago Atlantic as part of a three person team that includes Tony Cappell, Chief Executive Officer and Director, and Andreas Bodmeier, Co-President, Chief Investment Officer and Director.
In this episode our hosts explore how one of the largest lenders in the cannabis industry considers and de-risks lending. John also walks us through Chicago Atlantic’s business model, competitive edges, and how the team is experiencing significant growth despite industry uncertainty.
So sit back and enjoy our conversation with John Mazarakis of Chicago Atlantic.
