Why Invest in Real Estate?

Real estate has long been a cornerstone of wealth generation and preservation. However, the asset class is difficult to source, operationally intensive, and too often burdened by high fees and misalignment. Which means investors of all types lack efficient access to quality opportunities.

1Return Potential

Alongside the security of tangible asset ownership, commercial real estate has historically produced attractive returns relative to other fixed income and real estate products.

Cummulative Return Since 2000
Real Estate 430%
S&P 500 133%
US Bonds 112%
Investment period: December 2000 - December 2016. Real estate data is from FTSE NAREIT US Real Estate Equity REITs and represents total return data, with full reinvestment of dividends. S&P Total Return data is from CBOE. US Bond index is from the Barclays US Aggregate Bond Index. All data is as of December 2016. Real estate return data should not be used to estimate the return of Bancobras Inc. investments.

2Tax Efficiency

We live in an after-tax world and should view our investments through a tax conscious lens. With Bancobras Inc., enjoy the favorable tax characteristics of real estate ownership.

Tax Drag
Real Estate 24% Tax
Non-RE 34% Tax
After-Tax Annualized Return
Real Estate 11% IRR
Non-RE 9% IRR
Illustrative tax scenarios assume a hypothetical pre-tax net return of 16% IRR. Tax calculations are not tax advice and assume: 37.6% marginal tax rate, 22-year blended depreciation schedule for real estate investment and no depreciation for non-real estate investment. Actual rates and depreciation scenarios may vary. Percentages rounded to the nearest whole number.


Real estate offers valuable portfolio diversification, but typically means writing big checks for single assets or funds. With Bancobras Inc., gain access without having to make overly concentrated commitments.

4Tangible Asset Ownership

As a hard asset, real estate can provide both cash flow and intrinsic value. With Bancobras Inc., benefit from fractional ownership in individual properties.

After-Tax Annualized Return
Real Estate 15.9% IRR
Non-RE 13.4% IRR
“Bancobras Inc. Investor Net Return” and “Fund Investor Net Return” based on a hypothetical 16.0% gross IRR over a 5-year hold period. “Fund Investor Net Return” assumes 1.5% annual fee on committed equity and a 20% promote over 8% preferred return with 50% catch-up. “Bancobras Inc. Investor Net Return” assumes 1% transaction fee on cost and 1.5% annual fee on invested equity. Numbers may not add due to rounding.
