Other Benefits for Investors
Atlantic American Opportunities Fund's General Partner believes the Fund represents an attractive opportunity for the following reasons.
Diversification of Risk – AAOF’s investment approach is based on the basic fundamentals of diversification. Structured as a private equity fund, AAOF pools its investor’s capital and invests in a “portfolio” of several different projects. EB-5 applicants become Limited Partners (i.e. owners) of the overall Fund, and therefore own an equal share of each project, not just one. This structure helps manage risk because the investor’s total investment no longer has to rely on the success of one single asset.
Safety of Job Creation – The Fund will target projects that create more than the required 10 jobs per investor (15 to 20 jobs is the goal), providing a “cushion” that is designed to provide additional security to the Fund’s investors from a job creation standpoint.
Timely Return of Capital – AAOF has been structured to return its EB-5 investor’s capital in a timely manner, but in accordance with the EB-5 Program’s five year “at risk” requirement. AAOF’s Limited Partnership Agreement includes a mandatory liquidation of the Fund’s assets to ensure that capital is returned to its investors; however, the Fund assets will consist of real estate investments and no assurance can be given that these investments can or will be sold within a specific time frame.
Lucrative Target Market – According to the 2010 United States Census, Florida maintains the 4th largest population and economy in the United States. Steady population growth has and should continue to provide increased demand for goods and services, fueling ongoing growth.
Experienced and Focused Management Team – The members of the General Partner have over 100 years of combined experience and have structured, completed, managed and exited investments through multiple business and economic cycles.
Ability to Leverage Top Tier Relationships – The Fund will leverage its many relationships with regional and national developers, operators, real estate brokers and agents, and other professionals to identify and develop new projects that meet the various requirements of the EB-5 Program.
Streamlined and Disciplined Investment Process – The Fund Manager performs comprehensive due diligence and emphasizes an extensive pre-acquisition review not only to assess investment value, but also to ensure a smooth ownership and management transition. The Manager is presented with over 400 investments per year, selecting only about 2% for investment by the Fund.
Comprehensive Investor Reporting – Investors will receive quarterly reports detailing the activities, progress and any issues of each portfolio investment in the Fund. Year-end financial statements will be audited by an independent Certified Public Accounting firm.
