PropShare Real Estate Fund I

IME AIF Rating: 5-star | Open for subscription: Yes | AIF Category: Real Estate PE
  • Strategy: Clear commercial property rental yielding-focused strategy. The narrow focus reduces the risk for investors, unlike other RE strategies that have a presence in last-mile funding (which lack cash flows and have gestation periods before realization). The tenant credibility and lock-in bring certainty of cash flow to the investors. Fee also at the lower-end makes a compelling case for PropShare AIF.
  • Investment Team: Highly experienced team with previous experience at highly credible real estate firms.
  • AMC: PropShare was amongst the first India RE-focused advisor that made commercial real estate affordable for investors. With $3bn transaction value and 33 mn sqft of office, retail, and warehousing assets in India since the inception of the firm, the firm comes with high credibility in identifying properties.
  • Leverage: leverage at 2 property levels (out of minimum 4) adds to the investors IRR
  • Work from Home Risk: WFH continues to be key structural risk although PropShare and other major ‘A’ grade office backers have not seen a major dip in collections during peak covid periods too.
  • Formal employment generation: commercial properties esp offices are highly dependent on job creation, which is majorly driven by IT and Banking in India. Any recessionary pressures of industry-level adversaries could impact property demand as a result of property yield and capital appreciation. Although both IT and banking seem to be doing well at this point.
  • Investors looking to diversify beyond equity, and debt or looking at alternatives to high-risk debt instruments would find this offering very attractive, keeping in mind the key risks.
