June 29, 2023: Sundaram Alternates, a subsidiary of the Sundaram Group, today announced the launch of its latest high yield credit investment offering, the Sundaram Alternative Opportunities Series – High Yield Secured Real Estate Fund IV ("RE Credit Fund IV"). Similar to its earlier 3 real estate credit funds that delivered consistent returns to investors over the past 5 years, this fund is designed to provide investors with access to a diversified portfolio of secured real estate investments, with a primary focus on self-liquidating residential projects across key South Indian micro-markets, in addition to interesting opportunities such as last-mile financing, project acquisitions, select rescue financing etc at attractive returns while being secured from a capital protection perspective.
With the robust outlook for the real estate sector and its performance over the last 12 months, RE Credit Fund IV aims to create a largely growth-oriented portfolio and build key developer relationships within the real estate categories of mid-market residential, hybrid and commercial projects that offer attractive down-side protected returns. Approximately 70-75% of the fund’s allocation will be directed towards projects with visible cash flows post approvals thereby ensuring downside protection and regular income streams to investors. The remaining 25-30% will be tactical/ opportunistic investments that provide higher returns to boost portfolio performance.
