Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 21, 2012
Jumpstart Equity Partners is launching a new platform to originate and invest in proprietary co-investment opportunities with 'emerging managers'; US-based private equity real estate managers that have closed their first or second fund, with their latest fund raising $300 million or less.
The platform will make direct equity investments alongside emerging managers in control-oriented commercial real estate situated within the United States. Specifically, distressed and undervalued properties with “value added” or “value creation” potential located in markets that demonstrate strong market fundamentals.
“Jumpstart Equity Partners has employed a collaborative approach that involves working with emerging managers on various facets of an investment, including due diligence through to structuring the transaction and asset management.” says Managing Director Jason M. Neal, a seasoned entrepreneur with more than 20 years industry experience. “The platform is intended to assist emerging managers that currently lack the capital resources to secure sought after assets, but have the experience and know-how to make the investment successful” says Neal.
Jumpstart Equity Partners has not restricted the number of managers it will invest with, focusing on experience, track record and quality deal flow.
“We are looking for emerging managers headed by experienced representatives who can demonstrate a strong performance track record” says Neal. “Investments will be made on a deal-by-deal basis and we anticipate contributing between $5 million and $25 million to each transaction.”
Jumpstart Equity Partners represents a unique approach to private equity investment. Structured for wealth managers, family offices and high net worth investors, the platform offers smaller investors the opportunities and benefits typically afforded larger institutional investors.
“We modeled the platform with sophisticated investors in mind. It’s unique and refreshing in its structure and approach. Unlike a traditional fund, investors have the flexibility to choose which assets they invest in, they gain the benefits of direct ownership, and transparency is paramount.” says Neal.
Emerging real estate fund managers, including those that have recently established a first-time fund, are invited to contact Jumpstart Equity Partners for further information.
