On the heels of a banner production year in 2019, Sadhvi Subramanian combatted financial headwinds posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to help Capital One complete a number of major transactions in the D.C. region.

Subramanian’s portfolio, which consists largely of properties in the region, closed $1 billion in new loans in 2020, a number she called “significant” compared to most other banks.

“We had a pretty good year in 2020,” said Subramanian, who has spent the last 20 years at Capital One. “That is a pretty good achievement considering COVID, and considering all the internal work that everybody had to do to make sure that we were in a good place,” she said.

Capital One’s notable originations around the D.C area last year included acting as the agent bank on a $175 million syndicated term loan for developer JBG SMITH for the financing of its new corporate headquarters in Bethesda, Md. It also closed a $70 million loan for American Real Estate Partners to refinance a Baltimore office building at 700 Pratt Street.

Nationally, the McLean, Va.-based bank also financed a portfolio of industrial assets for Taurus Investment Holdings in multiple markets by facilitating a $106 million loan for the acquisition.

“We had to come up with slightly different innovative structures last year, because of where the market was and because absorption was slower with every product type,” Subramanian said.

Beyond her heavy involvement with Capital One’s lending activity, Subramanian was active in promoting Capital One’s numerous diversity initiatives last year, with Commercial Real Estate Women (CREW) D.C. honoring her in September with the 2020 Career Advancement for Women Impact Award for helping to grow the organization’s chapter.

She helped spearhead a partnership between Capital One and CREW that led to the bank’s 2020 benchmark study about gender and diversity (or the lack thereof) in commercial real estate.
