The Fund aims to deliver gross current income yields of 9.0% while balancing long-term capital appreciation to deliver minimum target gross IRRs of 16.0% and target gross equity mult iples of 2.0x.
Given the current macroeconomic environment, the Fund retains the ability to pursue a blended strategy whereby up to 30% is invested in opportunistic core assets while approximately 70% of deployable capital is invested in stabilized core assets.
If prevailing conditions dictate that the Fund pursue the aforementioned blended stabilized/opportunistic portfolio, it would reflect slightly lower target gross income yields of 8.2%, but both higher target gross IRRs of 21.3% and target gross equity multiples of 2.4x.
Immediate In-Place Cash Return
The Fund follows “Income Now” approach that targets immediate and strong current cash yields paired with long-term value protection of the underlying investments.
Capital Preservation by Investing in Stabilized, Fully Leased Core Properties
The Fund targets properties with long-term leases in place to high-credit tenants and Class A buildings in highly desirable locations.
The Sun Belt's Strong Fundamentals
Second-tier cities within the Sun Belt offer investors attractive pricing and higher yields supported by sound economic fundamentals that still offer confidence and successful exit strategies.
Blended Strategy to Maximized Potential Returns
The Fund also targets core real assets with strong underlying fundamentals that present an opportunistic investment stemming from the current macroeconomic turmoil.
Broad Network – Robust Pipeline
Within each of the target markets, the Fund’s investment team boasts strong networks that provide access to unique investment opportunities and off-market deal sourcing.
