How does It Work?

Introduced by the Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017, “Opportunity Zones” (“O-Zones”) are census tracts designated by federal and state governments based on their lower income demographics. The Program was created to incentivize investment within these communities by providing material tax benefits to U.S. investors who re-invest any form of capital gains into Opportunity Funds. To qualify, investments must target “substantial improvement”, which generally means development or extensive repositioning of a property.

The Cadre Advantage: A Differentiated Approach

We are uniquely positioned to offer a differentiated Opportunity Zone Program because the optimal O-Zone investment strategy and deal structure align with our existing investment approach.

Efficient Diversification

Access a series of O-Zone opportunities with data-driven diversification across select markets and alongside experienced operating partners. We seek to avoid the risks associated with single asset, market, or developer strategies.

Experienced Investment Team

While the Program's tax benefits are highly attractive, investments must be grounded in the merits of the real estate. The Cadre team brings over $50 billion of collective transaction experience at top tier investment firms, including ~$10bn of development experience across the U.S. We co-invest in each opportunity alongside our investors and actively manage all of our assets.

High-Quality Operator and Developer Network

We have developed a pipeline of actionable opportunities within our target O-Zone markets, driven by our network of over 300 local operating partners. These relationships provide us with a unique sourcing advantage across O-Zones, as well as local market development and repositioning expertise.

Disciplined, Single-Asset Fund Structure

Since inception, we’ve focused exclusively on structuring single-asset funds, which we believe is the optimal structure for gaining exposure to Opportunity Zones. This structure has also encouraged discipline without a broad, multi-asset fund mandate. We have reviewed over 300 Opportunity Zone transactions to date and committed to a select few.
