Why invest in your fund versus a standard REIT?
The standard Real Estate Investment Trust, or REIT is an investment vehicle that allow people to invest their money and invest in specific Real Estate markets. REIT’s invest in properties and make money on the operations of those properties. Our fund Invests in properties but purchases them with the expressed purpose of improving or developing the property. Thus investors can take advantage of the appreciation of this faze of the properties life.
What are the ethical standards you adhere to?
Ramesses Development Partners seeks deals that are mutually advantageous to all parties involved. In order to embody ethical standards of investment and structuring that meet that standard, we've chosen to use standards that are cross-cultural and universal in nature. Sharia compliant investments meet that standard. In it’s basic sense, Sharia compliance entails the avoidance of transactions that involve interest on capital or riba. There is also an emphasis on sharing risk, due diligence, and compliance reporting to ensure the rights of all parties are protected.
Why have a Sharia compliant investment?
We have chosen a Sharia compliant structure for several reasons. First, the risk profiles for Sharia compliant investment are historically lower than conventionally financed deals. Lower risk means a safer investment. Second, Real Estate is typically a highly leveraged business. By using a Sharia compliant structure our investors benefit from the upside movement of the investments, not the lenders. Lastly, Sharia compliant investments have a risk profile that are not only competitive, but are enticing to all investors seeking an ethical, responsible investment.
How Safe is this investment?
While real estate is a great long-term asset class to invest in, any allocation of funds involves risk. We cannot guarantee returns or lack of loss. We believe that our structure provides our investors with the ideal vehicle to invest in Real Estate Development. Our management and compliance structure ensure that our investors will be met with the highest level of professionalism, giving them the peace of mind they need in today's markets.
