Sponsor Advisory Services

Since 2002, CapHarbor has been active as an advisor to institutional and quasi-institutional real estate operating companies who wanted access to the independent broker-dealer (BD) and registered investment advisor (RIA) marketplace as an additional capital-raising channel for their real estate activities.

CapHarbor serves as an architect to companies seeking to become sponsors in the BD and RIA marketplace; helping to design, guide and bring together the various components that lead to the successful sponsorship of ‘Regulation D’ Delaware Statutory Trust (DST) and other privateplacement real estate offerings.

CapHarbor has been particularly active in working with private equity firms whose operating partners were responsible for executing the business plan for maximizing the value from their real estate assets.  Unfortunately, once that maximum value had been achieved, the properties needed to be sold, which made it difficult for the operating partners to retain the teams that they had so carefully built.  By bringing those properties into the BD & RIA space, the capital could be repatriated to the respective parties at fair market value, while the operating partner retained management and operation of the properties.
