Institutional Real Estate Investments

In the majority of transactions, U.S. Capital Realty Trust will elect to invest the firm’s discretionary capital along with the capital of their partners. This is done through direct investments in which U.S. Capital Realty Trust maintains a 100% ownership interest or with quality sponsors where the investment is in the General Partner Tranche of the capital stack. An ideal sponsor for this program has a proven track record with a quality management team in place. U.S. Capital Realty Trust's goal is to create long-term, mutually beneficial relationships with active operators looking to dramatically grow their existing platforms.

Deal Structure


The waterfall structure is dependent upon the investment; however, U.S. Capital Realty Trust will typically fund 25% to 95% of the required G.P. Co-Investment. In exchange for contributing capital, U.S. Capital Realty Trust will share in a portion of the promoted interest received by the Sponsor from the Limited Partner(s). When applicable, the Sponsor will retain the market-related fees associated with the transaction. The Sponsor also is responsible for signing any and all required loan-related guarantees and/or covenants.
