Is there any benefit of investing via a fund structure?
Definitely. Investing via a fund structure enables investors to jointly invest in opportunities which may be beyond their individual limits. This is especially relevant to real estate assets which are highly capital intensive. Investing via a fund structure enables investors to enjoy investment exposure without stretching their resources and helps them diversify.
Another important benefit is that the fund structure safeguards the interests of every investor through proper fund documentation which clearly stipulates their rights.
