Forming A Real Estate Fund | a White Paper

This white paper discusses some of the key considerations in forming a private real estate fund, including strategy, structure, and investment terms.

Real estate securities offerings span a broad continuum of size and complexity.  At the largest and most complex end of the spectrum are non-traded and traded Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs), which are pooled investment vehicles requiring a large number of investors to satisfy regulatory and tax requirements and generally requiring a substantial asset base to justify the costs of formation and operation.

The private real estate fund strikes a balance between the two ends of the spectrum, enabling a sponsor to raise capital in a pooled fund without being constrained to do successive securities offerings on a deal-by-deal basis, and without the complexity, scale and substantial regulation of forming a REIT.
