New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
“We believe it is the right time to increase our distribution rate as we are now significantly larger, the Fund is allocated to a diversified group of targeted, institutional, private equity real estate securities and we feel that we have validated our model through our year one performance”, said Ramin Kamfar, Bluerock’s Chief Executive Officer.
Under its new policy, the Fund expects to make regular, quarterly distributions at an annualized rate equal to 5.25%, based on net asset value per share as of the ex-dividend record date at the end of the quarter. The level of quarterly distributions is not fixed and all or a portion of each distribution may constitute a return of capital for tax purposes. There is no assurance that the Company will continue to declare distributions or that they will continue at these rates.
The Total Income+ Real Estate Fund invests the majority of its assets in institutional private equity real estate securities that generally were available only to institutional investors capable of meeting the multi-million dollar minimum investment criteria. As of the end of the fourth quarter, the value of the underlying real estate held by the securities in which the Fund is invested exceeded $26 billion, including funds managed by Blackrock, Clarion Partners, and RREEF, among others. The minimum investment in the Fund is $2,500 ($1,000 for retirement plans).
