Historically, private equity real estate investing was arranged through syndications that were only open to friends and family, or people with whom the deal sponsor had some sort of personal relationship. It’s often been referred to as “country club” equity for this reason. There was an underlying assumption that this relationship had been pre-vetted to some degree, and therefore, investors had enough confidence in the sponsor to write a check that would translate into positive returns.

The nature of private equity real estate investing changed dramatically in 2012 with the passing of the JOBS Act, a federal regulation that eased the requirements about who can invest in private equity real estate and under what conditions. Now, there are more efficient mechanisms by which investors can invest – namely, through private capital networks.

Creating Alpha in Real Estate Investments Through Strategic Design

Successfully cultivating investment opportunities for a private capital network involves carefully balancing the desire for strong investment returns against the risk inherent in achieving those returns. Risk is increased in times of uncertainty, and the current economic situation has investors asking how to effectively (and safely) allocate their capital. We believe that with the right sponsor partners, strong execution in the form of comprehensive underwriting, deal evaluation, and favorable investment structures, investors can find Alpha – excess return above the market - in a variety of different market conditions. This article explains how Alpha Investing is structured to source high-caliber sponsors and provide strong risk-adjusted opportunities to its members.
