First and Only Index Fund for Private Real Estate Open to Accredited Investors, Using Same Strategy as Some of the World’s Largest Pensions Funds

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio, Aug. 2, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — IDR Investment Management, LLC (“IDR”), the innovators behind the first and only index fund for private real estate, have expanded access to wealth management platforms serving high net worth individuals (“Accredited Investors”). New investors now have the opportunity to participate in an indexing strategy previously limited only to institutional investors.

IDR Investment Management

The IDR Core Property Index Fund (the “ODCE Index Fund”) – with over $4 billion in AUM and patented investment models – has closely replicated the return performance of the NCREIF Open-End Diversified Core Equity Index (or “ODCE Index”) with less than 12 bps of tracking error since launching the Fund in 2018. The ODCE Index has been tracking market performance for the past 45 years and today is considered to be among the most comprehensive benchmarks for U.S. private real estate. The index is similar to what the S&P 500 is for the largest publicly traded stocks. More than 75% of global institutional real estate investors use ODCE as their benchmark.

The ODCE Index is comprised of over $337 billion in market value that is capitalized by more than 4,000 global investors. Its roughly 3,300 properties are geographically diversified across the 35 largest U.S markets. Property types include industrial, apartment, office, retail and specialty, which individually average approximately $100 million in value per asset. The ODCE Index has produced a 9.9% net total return over the past 10 years as of March 31, 2022 and due to inflation, property supply imbalances and strong rent growth, 27.3% over the past year.

“Other asset classes have benefited from the use of passive investment strategies in portfolio management. The ODCE Index Fund provides investors of all sizes with low-cost access to private real estate in an efficient index fund structure,” said Gary Zdolshek, CEO of IDR. “We are excited to welcome accredited investors to join our institutional investor base in what we believe should be the third leg of a compelling investment strategy alongside equities and bonds.”

Garrett Zdolshek, IDR’s portfolio manager added, “Diversified private real estate investment provides many potential portfolio benefits and historically has provided a hedge against inflation, stable income and low correlation to stocks and bonds. Indexing also reduces single property and manager selection risk while providing potentially attractive returns over a full market cycle.”

IDR investors include several of the largest pensions in the U.S. including the Teachers’ Retirement System of Texas (“TRS”), which initially backed the Fund in 2018. Jared Morris, Investment Manager of Real Assets for TRS noted: “We have seen a deep level of interest in public markets for index products such as ETF’s on the S&P 500. What IDR is doing is a major innovation for private equity real estate and will bring the same portfolio benefits to both the large institutions and qualified retail investors.”

IDR maintains a strategic partnership with USAA Real Estate, which has a 40-year track record of market performance and over $36 billion in assets under management operating out of ten global offices in the United States, Europe and Asia.
