Crescendo Real Estate advises the Crescendo Preservation & Income Fund I & II whose single strategy is focused on investments in operationally mission critical corporate real estate across certain industry sectors and commercial property types.
In a sense, the Funds provide an "intermediation platform" between corporate customers seeking to release capital tied up in real estate assets and investors seeking transparent growing income from a diversified set of high-quality corporate credits.
As corporate boards focus more closely on optimizing the efficiency of capital, sale leaseback financing provides an alternative source of long-term credit to traditional secured, unsecured and equity-focused financing.
This monetization of on-balance sheet real estate provides corporations with continued operational control, enhanced financial metrics and potential tax benefits.
Investors seeking an alternative to their fixed income portfolios will appreciate the credit-oriented nature of corporate net lease investing.
The Funds provide rising income, either through stated or CPI-indexed increases payable quarterly.
Sale leaseback and build-to-suit financing:
The principals of Crescendo Real Estate have considerable experience in providing long-term sale leaseback and build-to-suit financing for companies.
The Funds provide access to capital tied up in real estate by acquiring the asset at market value and then leasing the asset back under a long-term triple-net lease.
In addition, the Funds provide developers with 100% construction or take-out financing on new build-to-suit mission-critical assets leased to corporations, governments and universities.
These counterparties can convert an otherwise depreciating or under-utilized asset into working capital to pay down debt, re-invest in higher growth parts of their business, return capital to shareholders while maintaining long term operational control of their real estate.
The Funds seek to provide investors safety from owning strategic corporate assets, transparency generated by high quality tenants on long-term leases and rising income tied to stated rental increases.
