"It's a private equity model. General Partners get paid after the investors get paid. When they liquidate the fund...80% of profits go to the investors and the remaining 20% go to the General Partner. I think that's fair. Our incentives are aligned.... I think if you are comfortable investing in real estate, it's a great option. It's investing in a diversified portfolio of real estate assets."
