Selecting a US Real Estate Fund Manager: 

The relationship between a real estate investor and their investment manager should be a long and rewarding one. In order to avoid disappointment and the financial implications of switching allegiances during strategic implementation, it is important to select the right manager at the outset. This paper is designed as a tool to help investors navigate a smooth manager selection process.

Richwood performs a vigorous vetting and due diligence process in the selection of fund managers and operators we partner with to introduce to Japan investors through our extensive network in Japan. Richwood is compensated by the US fund manager on a percentage of committed capital and fees based on performance.

Other factors taken into consideration are:

  • Style drift – What separates good managers from the pack is a GP track record to stick to the investment philosophy they outlined
  • Return targets and hedging costs
  • Loss record – What happened in each circumstance when money was lost and how it was corrected or will be different next time
  • Yen-based sleeve for hedging costs
