Investing in a business or commercial real estate requires a strategic approach. Let’s work together to create a plan that matches your vision.
All investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. Past performance is not indicative of future results, and there is no assurance that any investment strategy will be successful.
Social impact investing focuses on companies that demonstrate adherence to environmental, social and corporate governance principles, among other values. There is no assurance that social impact investing can be an effective strategy under all market conditions. Different investment styles tend to shift in and out of favor. In addition, a fund’s social policy could cause it to forgo opportunities to gain exposure to certain industries, companies, sectors or regions of the economy which could cause it to underperform similar portfolios that do not have a social policy. In addition, there is no guarantee that the company invested in by a fund will exhibit positive or favorable environmental, social, and governance (ESG) characteristics.
Real estate investments carry special risks, including credit risk, interest rate fluctuations, and the impact of varied economic conditions, and may not be suitable for all investors.
Commercial Mortgage REITs (mREITs) invest in real estate securities that are not backed by the U.S. government. Commercial mREITS invest in Commercial Mortgage-backed Securities (CMBS), commercial mortgage loans and other investments backed by underlying commercial real estate property. CMBS are subject to the risks associated with the underlying pool of assets in which the CMBS represents an interest; fluctuations in interest rates and to the spread between short-term and long-term bond rates; securities market risks; credit/default; declines in rental or occupancy rates, weakness in the real estate market, among others.
