Zero transparency.  Their quarterly reporting lacks any financial diligence whatsoever.  A lot of interfund dealing with themselves which leads to a lot of questions as to the merit of each deal on its own if it weren't being sold to another of it's own funds.  In 3 deals with Virtua and High Growth Fund has only made one payment - behind schedule - with an unknown holdback that was never distributed; one land deal has made one distribution - a quarter behind when it was supposed to; and final land deal has not made any distributions (unsurprisingly).  All in all not horribly unhappy with the distributions, but highly skeptical that the funds will ultimately perform and very concerned that there are dealings in the overall company that are not above board.

Evening all,

I am in VHG II and III and just signed up for Avondale-Mirage directly through them and Met Center 15 (Realcrowd) in the past month.  

I am good with their numbers and returns so far.  Communication is getting better, especially with more staff.  I always get quick responses if I have a question.

My concerns have been the same as others, that they will get individual deals which look good and also have some of their fund money rolled up into these also.  I am ensuring not to be double, or triple, into any one of their properties. 

I haven't been in any of the deals that have exited but they have more staff and growing.  That's the only good sign.  I really don't have any bad to say about them and I hope it stays that way.  

Their previous deals seem to have gone well and I haven't seen any of their deals go bad.  If I could suggest one improvement it would be that I would like to see more info on how the deals are going.  I see the pretty quarterly reports but I wouldn't mind a few paragraphs directly from the senior team stating how things are going and what they expect in the next quarter.

Invested several deals since 2015, both in TIC recap and Land Developments in AZ.  

I think they are doing fairly well on the business execution of TIC deals at either par or above the proforma.  The reports are good but delayed up to 2m after quarter ended.  Couple of large tenant lease renews will be the key to take the deals to fruition.

However, the land developments in AZ are too ambitious and there are TOO MANY.  Some of the presentations are hyped. Especially, the exit plans are not proven.  They did get Virtua 91 entitlement as planed but the take out seems to be mainly by Virtua itself to form additional ventures to take out the land investors.  Whether this deal succession will be successful or even happening remain to be seen.  I'll definitely be out instead of investing into the new ventures.  

They seem to SPREAD themselves very thin into too many deals with the organization/personnel they have.

Another big factors for me to be skeptical is they charge high fees for themselves mostly upfront but have almost no co-investments themselves. 

So, jury is still out on this sponsor.  Only time can tell and I'll wait to see if some of the deals can be successfully exited.

I'm in a couple of the High Growth Funds which target very niche markets.... too early to tell how its going but I like the niche they are in and like the understanding they have of these very specific markets.

I have been with them for over a year, starting with my first investment for the Britannia Business Center I in Pleasanton, CA. I have since invested with their Virtua Fund III, both through CS. I have also invested directly in their Virtua 99 loan, which pays at 15% monthly for a 12M term and holds the first lien. I met them in person twice, both in dinner presentations and have talked to Llyod, Quinn, and Derek.

They operated primarily in the tennant-in-common (TIC) niche market and seemed doing extremely well. Their fees are very reasonable and they are quite responsive so far. I only wished that I had invested with them earlier, as some of their earlier deals returned over 100% IRR.
