NewStar Financial, Inc. | Ian S. McIsaac
Scott McIsaac brings more than 20 years' experience in commercial real estate finance and investment to NewStar.
Before joining NewStar, Scott most recently was Regional Director of the John Hancock Real Estate Investment Group's Boston regional office, where he led an investment team responsible for investment production for the company's mortgage portfolio in the northeastern United States. Scott opened the office for John Hancock's parent, Manulife Financial, in 1995, when Manulife moved away from a mortgage banking correspondent network to a system of in-house servicing and origination through six regional offices. Scott has also worked at New England Mutual Life Insurance Company and in a previous role at John Hancock. As a Senior Mortgage Investment Officer of New England Life and a Vice President of its subsidiary, Boylston Capital Advisors, he managed approximately 15% of the New England Life commercial mortgage portfolio, with responsibility for loan originations, workouts, and foreclosures. As a Senior Vice President of John Hancock Realty Equities, he directed new investments in John Hancock's public limited partnership accounts, and originated pure debt, pure equity, and debt-equity hybrid investments in a range of property types throughout the United States. Scott holds an MBA from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, a Master of City Planning degree from its School of Design, and a BA in Architecture, cum laude, from Yale College.

(left to right) Frank Zuckerbrot and Scott McIsaac. McIsaac: John Hancock underwrites the lower of actual or market rents, then underwrites the higher of market or actual vacancy, and then taps it at nothing less than 7 percent. McIsaac: Forget about what is going on in spreads, and forget about what is going on in supply and demand and rents. McIsaac: We find that in order to win deals, we have had to do things with our underwriting that we have not had to in the past. McIsaac: We are very comfortable with the stability in New York. McIsaac: It is not always an upside either, even for the B/C non-descript product in the suburbs.
