SEVEN REASONS TO INVEST IN INFRASTRUCTURE
The Landmark private Fund investors are designed to deliver current income from the distributable cashflow generated by the portfolio assets. Historically, the Funds have typically offered a priority return of capital plus a preferred return per annum. Distributions have been paid monthly during the term of each Fund and the net levered target returns for the Funds have historically been low to mid-teens annually.
Landmark aims to acquire assets that are significantly diversified across industry, tenancy and geography.
Low Volatility and Non-Correlated
Unlike stocks and bonds that may experience substantial volatility, the Landmark private Funds are intended to offer stable current returns that are not subject to the volatility of the publicly-traded markets.
The Landmark private Funds are structured to offer several potential tax-advantaged outcomes. A portion of the current income may be tax-deferred due to non-cash tax deductions (depreciation and amortization) and the recognized gain on exit is typically treated as a long-term capital gain. In addition, by utilizing a REIT-blocker structure, the Funds are also able to eliminate state-sourced income and UBTI, thereby allowing for investment from retirement accounts and simplifying tax reporting for certain investors. In addition, the REIT dividend income is eligible for the 20% qualified business income deduction for certain investors.
Essential Operating Assets
Landmark acquires assets that it believes are operationally essential to its tenants’ businesses. Fund assets typically include select digital infrastructure assets (data centers) and the real property interests underneath wireless communication (e.g. cell towers), outdoor advertising (e.g. billboards) and renewable power generation infrastructure assets (e.g. solar farms).
Assets are primarily leased to large, publicly-traded companies on a long-term, effectively triple net basis with contractual rent increases. Tenants are typically responsible for all real estate taxes, insurance, maintenance capital expenditures and utility expenses.
Active Secondary Market
Approximately $16 billion of select asset sales and financings have been completed over the last 15 years by some of the largest financial firms. Potential buyers for the Landmark private Funds include institutional investors, pension plans, infrastructure funds, insurance companies, tower companies and Landmark Infrastructure Partners LP (NASDAQ: LMRK).
