Preferred Equity FAQs
You've got questions, we've got answers.
What is the difference between preferred and other equity?
Common equity tends to have a profit split with Uncapped upside potential. Preferred equity has a lower fixed rate of return but is senior to all other equity in order of payment priority.
Who benefits from preferred equity?
There are two types of sponsors who benefit from preferred equity. The first type seeks ease of access to capital, with larger, single checks from preferred equity investors. This allows them to focus on due diligence instead of raising capital. The second type wants to increase member returns. Preferred equity rates are fixed, leaving room for more promote to sponsors and limited investment partners when opportunities exceed return expectations.
How does preferred equity work?
Unlike loans, preferred equity investments are not secured on title; rather, they are governed by an operating agreement that outlines the terms of the investment. Similar to Joint Venture (JV) agreements, preferred equity will have a variety of control rights and a non-recourse guarantee with standard "bad boy carveouts".
How long does the process take?
30-45 days is common, CALCAP has closed in as little as 10 days.
