Why Invest in Real Estate?


Investing in real estate allows LPs to select a risk/return profile that aligns with their needs. They are able to diversify their allocation by investing in a fund that acquires a range of asset classes and/or strategy profiles. Typically, it offers a low risk, stable cash yielding solution. Most funds will yield predictable cash distributions to investors on a quarterly basis. Additionally, real estate investments help mitigate inflation risk, as tenant leasing prices are linked to CPI and inflation.
