Bluerock’s Total Income+ Real Estate Fund (“Fund or TI+,” tickers: TIPRX, TIPPX, TIPWX) announced today that its assets under management have surpassed $100 million.
“Exceeding $100 million in AUM is a great milestone. It’s a continued investor validation that the TI+ Fund is meeting its mandate to deliver high current income and total return with low volatility and correlation,” said Ramin Kamfar, Bluerock’s Chief Executive Officer. “With TI+ individual investors are now able to invest in institutional private equity real estate (iPERE), an asset class recognized for its ability to provide investors equity-like returns but with the lower volatility of fixed income. iPERE has, historically, been shown to improve the risk/return profile of diversified portfolios.”
Total Income+ Real Estate Fund invests the majority of its assets in institutional private equity real estate securities managed by leading managers including AEW, Morgan Stanley, Principal, Clarion Partners, J.P. Morgan, and RREEF, among others. Prior to TI+, these investments were generally available only to institutional investors capable of meeting multi-million dollar minimums. To date, the Fund has made investments into underlying securities that collectively include over $60 billion in real estate assets, comprising approximately 2,000 properties across the United States with a combined average occupancy of 93% and with low leverage.
“Now that the Fund has crossed the $100 million AUM threshold, we are working to expand its availability on additional platforms, and expect added benefits from economies of scale as the Fund continues to grow,” noted Mr. Kamfar.
