Coupled with the high grade fund that we announced in June, we have raised over $1.2 billion of private equity capital in the last six months, positioning CT to take advantage of opportunities at all points in the real estate capital structure.”

CTIMCO will earn management fees equal to 1.6% of the aggregate committed capital during the investment period and 1.60% per annum of the aggregate invested capital thereafter, plus incentive management fees after investors receive a return of capital and a preferential return.
