"Trinity has a best-in-class lending platform, and I look forward to leveraging my network and skillset to continue driving the company's momentum in being a resource to the life sciences ecosystem."

In early 2022, Trinity appointed Rob Lake, a seasoned professional with over two decades of experience, as Senior Managing Director to spearhead its growth efforts in the life sciences sector. Since then, the proportion of the Company's assets under management dedicated to life sciences investments has grown considerably. Trinity's new San Diego office location is designed to support the Company's continued expansion in the sector. San Diego has long been recognized as a center for disruptive research and innovation, with prominent institutions like University of California San Diego. This strategic presence places Trinity in the heart of a major life sciences hub.

"The life sciences market presents tremendous opportunities, and we are committed to providing the necessary financial support to enable groundbreaking discoveries and advancements," said Rob Lake, Senior Managing Director of Trinity.
