By “Invest Like an Institution,” we mean that Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund enables individuals to invest in an investment structure (a combination of private real estate funds and public real estate securities) frequently chosen by institutions, large and small, as their preferred structure for real estate investments. We also mean the Fund is managed by sub-advisors who only advise institutions. Finally, we mean that investors in this Fund invest alongside numerous institutions such as pension funds and insurance companies; literally, a portion of their dollars are invested in the same private equity real estate funds as those owned by institutions.
By “Your Public and Private Real Estate Investment Solution,” we mean that Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund, which offers investors a blend of public and private real estate investments selected and managed by leading institutions (the Fund’s sub-advisors) delivers an investment solution. This Fund, because it provides an array of potential benefits from current income to less volatility and modest market correlation to pricing transparency and periodic liquidity, is a ’solution.’
