What types of real estate investments does CityVest consider?

CityVest is committed to providing its investors with cash flow positive projects which can provide them with current income no later than 12 months after investment.

+

What are my obligations to CityVest after closing?

All of our sponsors are required to provide us with quarterly updates on the performance of the investment property which we will share with our investors. These updates will typically be no different than those you would provide to investors and financial institutions outside of CityVest and will include rent rolls, operating statements and investment summaries.

+

Will I be responsible for managing hundreds of individual retail investors?

No! All CityVest investors are pooled into a single LLC. CityVest manages all aspects of our LLC, so that the sponsor can manage / operate the property. You will only be required to prepare a single K-1 for CityVest, and CityVest will handle the preparation of separate K-1’s for all of investors.

The distribution will be established in the operating agreement and may be monthly, quarterly or semi-annually. In some investments our investors will be provided with a preferred return which may be paid annually.

+

What is the JOBS Act and how does it impact CityVest?

CityVest is not currently operating under either Title II or Title III of the JOBS Act. Rather, all investment offerings made available through CityVest are conducted under existing Regulation D, Rule 506(b) and accordingly available only to Accredited Investors behind a secure firewall. For those that are interested, below is a brief synopsis of the JOBS Act:

In April 2012, President Obama signed the JOBS Act into law. Title II of the JOBS Act became effective on September 23, 2013 and Title III is currently under an SEC rulemaking period. Title III termed the "Crowdfunding Exemption" is designed to allow all investors – both accredited and non-accredited – to participate in private investments like those offered through CityVest. Until the final rules are released, CityVest must rely on existing exemptions under Regulation D, Rule 506 which limit our offerings to Accredited Investors. The good news is that the SEC is making progress: Title II of the JOBS Act, which lifts the ban on general solicitation for securities offered under Regulation D, Rule 506, went into effect on September 23, 2013. This means that Private Companies can now advertise their investment opportunities subject to a requirement that they form a reasonable belief that all investors are accredited.

+

How does CityVest maintain compliance with Federal Securities Laws?

CityVest relies on a strong team of lawyers and financial advisors, all with substantial expertise in securities laws. More specifically, all CityVest offerings are private placements exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to Section (4)(a)(2) and Rule 506(b) of Regulation D. In accordance with Federal Securities laws, all offerings conducted through CityVest are currently restricted to Accredited Investors.

+

Can a sponsor raise money if they are not accredited?

Yes. Only investors need to be accredited.

+

Can I advertise my fundraising to the general public?

On September 23, 2013, the SEC implemented Regulation D Rule 506(c) pursuant to Title II of the JOBS Act which allows an issuer to advertise their fundraising to the general public. When advertising a private placement, there are certain rules that must be followed, specifically regarding the verification of the accredited investor status of investors.
