CAPITAL IDEAS: OPPORTUNISTIC TIMING

Raintree Financial Solutions & ICM Realty Trust

Sometimes the best investment opportunities arise when the economy appears the bleakest. ICM, led by a strong team of professionals, recognized this in 2012 when they decided to invest heavily in real estate located in the South East United States. Acknowledging that it’s not enough to take a scattergun approach, ICM targeted medical or grocery anchored commercial real estate that was resilient in most markets, but was still being undervalued due to existing economic conditions. They also identified opportunities that had specific activities that could drive enhanced value.
ICM VI has now completely exited at significant return to investors.
ICM approached Raintree Financial Solutions to raise capital in its series. ICM VI was the first retail fund marketed by ICM Realty Trust in Canada. Raintree assisted ICM in raising over $14 million of equity to be deployed in the strategy. They say timing is everything, but we think timing only works with a great strategy. ICM delivered that in spades.

CAPITAL IDEAS: CONSERVATIVE RISK

Raintree Financial Solutions & Agcapita Farmland Funds

Over the last 20 years, farmland has generated better absolute and risk-adjusted returns than all other real estate sectors. The Agcapita series of funds were developed to purchase and rent out arable farmland in Western Canada, benefiting from rental income and capital appreciation. Agriculture land investments are backed by strong global commodity demand, and offer a unique combination of return, stability and growth with the benefit of asset-backed downside protection. Agcapita is one of Canada’s only RRSP eligible farmland investment funds.
Raintree Financial Solutions has had the privilege to offer Agcapita’s farmland funds to Canadian investors searching for an alternative investment with conservative risk for almost six years. Agcapita has provided significant realized returns to investors of its first two funds. Agcapita provides investors with a geographically-diversified, low correlation, conservative risk portfolio of real assets with reasonable risk-adjusted returns. And as Mark Twain once said about investing in land, “they’re not making it anymore.”

CAPITAL IDEAS: SOCIAL ENTERPRISE

Raintree Financial Solutions & Sussex Retirement Living

CAPITAL IDEAS: VALUE OPPORTUNITY

Raintree Financial Solutions & Capstone Funds

As they say, timing is everything. Capstone investments started buying single-family homes in Phoenix, Arizona in 2010, with a simple vision – buy distressed properties with no leverage and rent the pool of homes. At the time, the American economy was struggling, the banking industry was in disarray and housing prices were bottoming out. Five years on, the economy has recovered, the banking industry has reorganized itself and home prices have recovered significantly – it seems so simple in hindsight.
Raintree Financial Solutions distributed Capstone investments from 2011 to 2014. We are continuously searching the market for opportunities to capitalize on value investment opportunities. This is a key component of our role in the capital markets. Capstone is a great example of buying at the right time, with a solid strategy and reducing downside risk by not taking on leverage.
