The Cadre team brings $50 billion of collective transaction experience and deep relationships with an extensive network of leading developers, providing us access to differentiated opportunities across the country.

Opportunity Zones Program Overview
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 Approach
The economic disparity between O-Zones and other areas highlights the need for thoughtful market selection. We’ve ranked the long-term growth potential of each O-Zone by combining data-driven spotlighting tools with on-the-ground developer relationships and market evaluations.

Identifying Attractive Markets through Data
There are over 8,700 census tracts designated as Qualified Opportunity Zones. We believe our data-driven investing approach allows us to seek neighborhoods that are capital-deprived today, but where investments can help drive future growth.

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.
Unique Single-Asset Fund Structure
Since inception, we’ve focused exclusively on structuring single-asset funds, which we believe is the optimal structure for Opportunity Zones investing. Leading law firms have noted that “a traditional [commingled] fund structure with multiple properties is not a straightforward fit for the OZ Program”1 and that instead, fund managers “may wish to create a separate fund for each property.”2
