TPREF has generated 5.63 per cent of net value add for clients in the first quarter of 2022, and 8.67 per cent since the fund launched on August 31, 2021. Since launching the fund, TPREF’s assets under management rose to over $170 million.

“We are proud of the results we have achieved since launching our private equity real estate fund. The recent Net Asset Value (NAV) growth is a testament to this,” said Morley Greene, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Trez Capital. “TPREF reflects our fundamental approach to investing. We look for high- quality assets in business-friendly regions with high job and population growth. Our main goal is to create long-term value for investors.”

With access to private real estate projects at the development stage throughout key markets in the United States, the Manager anticipates that investors will share in significant capital appreciation during the initial years of TPREF, and a steady, growing stream of cash flow as the properties stabilize. TPREF is currently invested in projects representing over $1 billion in construction value.

“We are off to a strong first year for the Fund, and so far, news from our projects has been overwhelmingly positive. We will continue to leverage our equity platform that sources and executes strategic joint-venture real estate investment and development opportunities, mainly across the Sunbelt states,” said John D. Hutchinson, Vice-Chairman & Global Head of Origination, Trez Capital. “Our investors are participating in a diversified pool of real estate developments, with the certainty that each has been underwritten to an institutional standard. For developers, we offer flexible and consistent capital.”

“We have the industry expertise and world-class partners in place to deliver the sustained and long-term returns our investors are looking for,” added Greene.

In 2015, Trez Capital launched its first closed-ended Opportunity Fund, which was the company’s first major foray into the equity investment business. Since then, Trez Capital has successfully raised and placed five Opportunity Funds, each tracking in excess of a 15 per cent annual internal rate of return (IRR).
