The Fund provides access to a diversified holding of large, private real estate securities typically available only to institutions (and without the large minimum investment and long holding period normally required).
TI+ seeks to invest within two, primary categories:
Private Equity Real Estate Securities
Which acquire and receive rental income from the direct ownership of real estate which include but are not limited to retail, office, multifamily, hospitality, industrial, residential, medical and self-storage properties. These private real estate securities have been historically unavailable to individual investors, due to their large minimum investment requirements.
Publicly Traded Real Estate Securities
Which invest in the debt and equity issued by publicly traded real estate investment trusts (REITs) and other similar structures.
The Fund’s disciplined investment strategy focuses on identifying opportunities that may provide:
- Current income generation
- Attractive risk-adjusted returns
- Low to moderate volatility
- Low correlation to the broader markets
To seek a combination of current income, capital appreciation, long-term capital appreciation and low volatility, the Fund’s portfolio is strategically diversified by geography, sector, and manager.
Diversity by Geography
TI+ seeks diversification by geography, focusing on real estate assets in high-growth, top-tier markets and investing primarily across all major regions of the United States.
Diversity by Sector
TI+ invests in strategies diversified by property sector, including retail, office, multifamily, industrial, and other. Each real estate sector has its own investment and economic cycles, adding further diversity to the portfolio.
Diversity by Manager
TI+ seeks to identify a mix of leading real estate investment managers to help achieve its objectives. The Fund’s current investments allow shareholders to invest directly alongside some of the nation’s largest public pension and retirement entities. The Gross Asset Value of the underlying real estate in the securities listed below surpasses $124+ billion.
There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve its objectives, generate profits, or avoid losses. No level of diversification or non-correlation can ensure profits or guarantee against losses.
