What exactly would I be investing in?

The simplest way to describe private equity real estate investments is to first explain an example between traditional public equities vs. private equity. In traditional public equities, a person lends their money to purchase shares and own an interest in a public company like Apple (AAPL). In private equity, an individual or institutional firm lends their money to purchase shares of private companies that are not accessible to the public.

So when we think of private equity real estate, this involves individuals lending their money to own shares of a real estate fund managed by private investment corporations. Each fund has a different strategy based on the investment firms’ specialty, such as:

  • Core (Income Producing Real Estate)
  • Value-Add (Development To Existing Real Estate)
  • Opportunistic (New Development / Construction Projects)
  • Mortgage Investment Corporations (Investing In Mortgages)

Generally, most investment dealers try to seek deals that can exit anywhere from 6 months to 10 years. Exit strategies are typically defined before any private dealer raises capital for an issuer and can occur by way of project completion, refinance, share buyback or sale.

What happens to my investment if the private real estate fund defaults?

Every private real estate dealers that we partner with have their own strict corporate governance policies, which dictate what happens during good times and bad times.

There are many levels of underwriting and due diligence that go into each project which aim to protect investor capital by way of security in the deals and resolutions in the event of a default.

Traditionally, if a default ever occurs, most private real estate dealers are obligated to hold general meetings for all their investors to clearly communicate the plan of action and strategy moving forward.
