New York, NY (PRWEB) October 22, 2014
“Exceeding $100 million in AUM is a great milestone. It’s a continued investor validation that the TI+ Fund is meeting its mandate to deliver high current income and total return with low volatility and correlation,” said Ramin Kamfar, Bluerock’s Chief Executive Officer. “With TI+ individual investors are now able to invest in institutional private equity real estate (iPERE), an asset class recognized for its ability to provide investors equity-like returns but with the lower volatility of fixed income. iPERE has, historically, been shown to improve the risk/return profile of diversified portfolios.”
Total Income+ Real Estate Fund invests the majority of its assets in institutional private equity real estate securities managed by leading managers including AEW, Morgan Stanley, Principal, Clarion Partners, J.P. Morgan, and RREEF, among others. Prior to TI+, these investments were generally available only to institutional investors capable of meeting multi-million dollar minimums. To date, the Fund has made investments into underlying securities that collectively include over $60 billion in real estate assets, comprising approximately 2,000 properties across the United States with a combined average occupancy of 93% and with low leverage.
“Now that the Fund has crossed the $100 million AUM threshold, we are working to expand its availability on additional platforms, and expect added benefits from economies of scale as the Fund continues to grow,” noted Mr. Kamfar.
About Total Income+ Real Estate Fund
The Total Income+ Real Estate Fund offers individual investors access to a portfolio of institutional real estate securities managed by top-ranked fund managers. The Fund seeks to provide a comprehensive real estate holding designed to provide a combination of current income, capital preservation, long-term capital appreciation and enhanced portfolio diversification with low to moderate volatility and low correlation to the broader equity and fixed income markets.

Investing in the Total Income+ Real Estate Fund involves risks, including the loss of principal. The Fund intends to make investments in multiple real estate securities that may subject the Fund to additional fees and expenses, including management and performance fees, which could negatively affect returns and could expose the Fund to additional risk, including lack of control, as further described in the prospectus. The Fund’s distribution policy is to make quarterly distributions to shareholders. The level of quarterly distributions (including any return of capital) is not fixed. However, this distribution policy is subject to change. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. A portion of the distributions consist of a return of capital based on the character of the distributions received from the underlying holdings, primarily Real Estate Investment Trusts. The final determination of the source and tax characteristics of all distributions in 2014 will be made after the end of the year. Shareholders should note that return of capital will reduce the tax basis of their shares and potentially increase the taxable gain, if any, upon disposition of their shares. There is no assurance that the Company will continue to declare distributions or that they will continue at these rates. There can be no assurance that any investment will be effective in achieving the Fund’s investment objectives, delivering positive returns or avoiding losses.
Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Total Income+ Real Estate Fund.
