Stonemont Financial Group, an Atlanta-based real estate investment firm, announced today the acquisition of a massive $1.3 billion portfolio of investment-grade, net lease assets from Oak Street Real Estate Capital. The portfolio, which will continue to be co-managed by Oak Street, consists of 97 office, retail and industrial properties spread across 20 states and 19 unique investment-grade tenants.
This deal marks the beginning of a strategic acquisition plan for Stonemont under its recently launched investment-grade income fund. The core-plus investment vehicle will be structured to provide institutional and private equity investors consistent outsized risk-adjusted returns for investment-grade credits.
“Given the high credit quality of the tenant base and strategic importance of the assets, we couldn’t ask for a better portfolio to serve as the first acquisition under our new fund,” said Zack Markwell, CEO and managing principal of Stonemont Financial Group. “This fund is truly one of a kind — it is the only investment-grade net lease fund diversified by tenant, geography and industry. We have an aggressive acquisition plan to grow the fund to meet investor demand for the superior risk-adjusted returns the fund offers.”
