When I invest in equity, what do I own?
When you invest in an equity opportunity, you are typically purchasing shares of an LP as a limited member. In turn, that LP owns (directly or indirectly), along with the real estate company and other investors, a share of a joint venture entity that owns a specific investment property, like a specific apartment building. An LP gives you liability protection, shielding your personal assets from the investment.
What if I invested in equity and more money is needed for the property in the future? Am I obligated to invest more as an equity owner?
Such investments typically do not have capital calls. A capital call is where the investor is required to commit more money to the property, beyond the initial investment. Rather than requiring an additional investment, it is possible that investors will be diluted if more money needs to be raised. While this is typically the case with equity investments offered in the industry, please check the offering materials for each investment to fully understand your liabilities as an investor.
