CRE Property Investment Fraud Due Diligence

Securities private placement offerings require due diligence and commercial real estate (CRE) property investment fraud due diligence is an area fraught with challenges and the potential for intentional and unintentional investment fraud risks that need to be proactively managed and mitigated.  1031-exchange CRE investment transactions (primarily Delaware Statutory Trust structures – or “DSTs”) require excruciating 10-year mandatory holding periods for the investor and this creates an unprecedented level of investment risk due diligence be conducted to provide the highest possible level of investment performance assurance.  This due diligence has to extend well beyond the date of funding to provide any measure of investment fraud prevention and mitigation and yet we still see a preponderance of transactions where the underwriting and due diligence focus is on the funding event only.  This is understandable because underwriting and due diligence reviews cost tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands of dollars and can require months to complete, but without the benefit of re-underwriting the transaction market opportunity, operations, financial results and execution responsibilities of the sponsor, investment fraud and loss severity risk issues only get bigger over the holding period, not smaller.

INVIZEN offers the CRE investor, sponsor, sell-side broker-dealer, buy-side broker-dealer, lender, registered investment advisor and property operations management team with the luxury of a comprehensive underwriting and due diligence review being undertaken each month of the entire investment holding period on an affordable basis.  The INVIZEN program is the only end-to-end solution that provides proactive protection with up to 24 months of advance notice of problems that can lead to future investment loss events while also providing investment fraud deterrence at all levels of the transaction to prevent future CRE bankruptcy and foreclosure events from becoming everyone’s current nightmare.

INVIZEN offers the first and only end-to-end solution for helping combat these problems that focuses on both the underwriting requirements for funding, but also prevention of future losses due to the asset value being impaired by term default risk, maturity default risk and/or technical default risk.

If the sponsor or issuer of the private placement offering you are considering (or have already invested in) doesn’t have this affordable defense for your benefit, you need to ask why your needs are potentially being subordinated to someone else’s lack of due diligence and care.
