Invest in Real Estate and Diversify Your Portfolio

CityVest invests in highly selective real estate private equity investment funds.

We Invest in Real Estate Investment Funds

CityVest is often an early investor in a new real estate fund.

Real estate private equity funds typically have a daunting task of raising capital. While funds will first target their existing investor contacts, capital raising quickly becomes a full time, year long struggle. CityVest is like a real estate fund of funds, however, we set up a feeder fund vehicle, which we call an access fund, that invests in just one selected real estate fund. We make it easy for our investors to review the real estate investment fund information to determine if they wish to invest. We provide our pool of thousands of approved registered accredited investors with access to your real estate fund but at a much lower minimum subscription amount. CityVest aggregates its investors, which invest from $25,000 to $250,000, allowing us to meet your much higher minimum subscription amount.

  • Single Investor

    Since CityVest aggregates our investors into one access fund, we represent just one investor and you issue just one K-1 to us. Our investors look to us to handle the investor communications to them.

  • Fast Due Diligence

    Given our focus exclusively on real estate funds, we complete our due diligence process in an accelerated time frame.

  • Aggregate Capital from Your Investors

    You may have investors that do not meet your minimum investment amount. We can facilitate their investment through our feeder funds.

  • Accelerated Closing

    After our due diligence, underwriting and set up of the feeder fund, we can access our thousands of investors in a matter of days.

  • Minimal Documentation Hassles

    Since we only specialize on real estate funds, we understand investment documentation.

  • Cost to Raising Capital

    The real estate investment fund pays a minimal administrative fee.

Fast Track Capital Raising Process

CityVest’s streamlined origination, due diligence and equity syndication process enables us to invest in your fund in as little as 2 weeks as compared to other investors which may take several months.

About the Process

+

What types of real estate investments does CityVest consider?

CityVest is committed to providing its investors with investments in institution grade real estate private equity funds. We seek experienced investment fund managers who have an investment team that has been together for a number of years and has an audited track record of success.

+

What characteristics are most desirable to CityVest’s investors?

CityVest actively seeks to invest in investment funds that are in a real estate strategy and demographic market where the investment manager has an identifiable track record of success. The investment manager should also utilize professional audit and administrators that have strong reputations.

+

What are my obligations to CityVest after closing?

All of our investment fund managers are required to provide us with quarterly and annual updates on the performance of the investment fund which we will share with our investors. These updates will be no different than those you would provide to other investors. Since we are just one investor, you will issue just one distribution to us just like any other investor. In addition, you will issue an annual K-1 schedule.

+

Will the investment fund manager be responsible for managing hundreds of individual retail investors?

No! All CityVest investors are pooled into a single LLC. CityVest manages all aspects of our LLC, so that the investment fund manager can focus on investing its capital. You will only be required to prepare a single K-1 for CityVest, and CityVest will handle the preparation of separate K-1’s for all of its investors.

+

Does CityVest seek different or unusual investment terms? How is a call provision handled?

CityVest is one investor and will be treated just like any other investor. If you have a call provision, then CityVest will have raised 100% of the money upfront from its investors to meet any call amounts that will be required. So there is no risk of an unfunded call by the investment manager.

+

Why should an investment fund manager want investment capital from CityVest?

CityVest works quickly to complete its due diligence and makes its investments.

+

How much does it cost to raise money through CityVest?

CityVest does not charge investment funds any fees, except for a $10,000 administration fee that is paid upon a first closing directly to a third party for managing the set-up of our LLC and accounting work.

+

How do I start the process to have CityVest consider investing in your fund?

You must provide us with a full investment memorandum, investment deck, and any other investment documentation on your fund. We will work expeditiously to complete due diligence, meet you and conclude our analysis to determine how we can move forward to invest in your fund. We handle all of our own documentation and website work.

+

How long does it take to close on an investment?

Every opportunity is unique, making funding time variable. That being said, investments listed on the CityVest platform will have an initial funding within a couple of weeks and have subsequent closing on a periodic basis. Please be aware, that we make no guarantees regarding our ability to successfully invest in your fund.

+

Does information regarding my investment offering remain confidential?

Prior to posting a fund on CityVest, all information will remain confidential, however, once listed we will need to disclose all relevant offering materials so as to ensure our Accredited Investors are able to make informed investment decisions.

+

What is the JOBS Act and how does it impact CityVest?

CityVest is not currently operating under either Title II or Title III of the JOBS Act, except certain provisions related to 506(c) offerings. Rather, all investment offerings made available through CityVest are conducted under existing Regulation D, Rule 506(b) and sometimes 506(c), and accordingly available only to Accredited Investors behind a secure firewall. For those that are interested, below is a brief synopsis of the JOBS Act:

In April 2012, President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law. Title II of the JOBS Act became effective on September 23, 2013 and Title III is currently under an SEC rulemaking period. Title III termed the "Crowdfunding Exemption" is designed to allow all investors – both accredited and non-accredited – to participate in private investments like those offered through CityVest. Until the final rules are released, CityVest must rely on existing exemptions under Regulation D, Rule 506 which limit our offerings to Accredited Investors. The good news is that the SEC is making progress: Title II of the JOBS Act, which lifts the ban on general solicitation for securities offered under Regulation D, Rule 506, went into effect on September 23, 2013. This means that Private Companies can now advertise their investment opportunities subject to a requirement that they form a reasonable belief that all investors are accredited.

+

How does CityVest maintain compliance with Federal Securities Laws?

CityVest relies on a strong team of lawyers and financial advisors, all with substantial expertise in securities laws. More specifically, all CityVest offerings are private placements exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to Section (4)(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) and (c) of Regulation D. In accordance with Federal Securities laws, all offerings conducted through CityVest are currently restricted to Accredited Investors.

+

Can I advertise my fundraising to the general public?

On September 23, 2013, the SEC implemented Regulation D Rule 506(c) pursuant to Title II of the JOBS Act which allows an issuer to advertise their fundraising to the general public. When advertising a private placement, there are certain rules that must be followed, specifically regarding the verification of the accredited investor status of investors. If you are conducting a 506(c), then we will consider conducting a 506(c) offering.
