This past year, at the Annual North American Development Group (NADG) Investor Meeting, a reoccurring theme emerged. While many of the longtime investors were accustomed to higher, more entrepreneurial returns from NADG, they now also desired a safer, more secure investment opportunity to place cash savings that currently were earning meager returns. Most of these were accredited investors, individual investors, as opposed to larger institutional funds. More specifically, they wanted these 3 things:
1. Safe and Secure Investments
2. Consistent and Growing Cash Flow to protect against future inflation
3. A Liquidity Option Just Because…things happen and flexibility is valuable.
As a response, NADG created an investment vehicle, structured as a private REIT, to invest in income producing, triple net leased, freestanding retail properties leased predominately to one tenant. This asset class provides several attractive features for individual investors who want to invest in real estate but want to avoid the time-intensive headaches associated with having to manage a property.
