Fortress PWS - Introduction to Net Lease Investing

Net Lease

What is a sale-leaseback?

In a primary sale-leaseback, a company sells and immediately enters into a long-term lease of its real estate with a third-party landlord, such as Fortress.

In a sale-leaseback, a company sells and immediately enters into a long-term lease of its real estate with a third-party landlord, such as Fortress. A sale-leaseback provides an alternative to direct ownership of property and allows companies to convert an illiquid asset to cash, which they can utilize for a variety of business uses, while retaining long term use and full operational control of the property.

1 The Tenant sells their property to Fortress
2 Fortress pays for the purchase and immediately leases the property back to the Tenant
3 The Tenant pays rent to Fortress, with contractual annual rent increases, and is responsible for property taxes, insurance, maintenance & repairs
4 Fortress receives rent. At the end of the primary lease term, the Tenant has multiple renewal options with Fortress

Potential Benefits of a net lease to investors 

Predictable streams of cashflows without the management responsibilities.

We believe, that if structured correctly, net lease investments are a great way to access the benefits of real estate with known and predictable streams of cashflows and without the management responsibilities of real estate ownership, which would otherwise cause variability in that cashflow.

Long-term, Known & Predictable Income

Potential for stable income with contractual rent payments

Downside Protection

Protected by real estate in a downside scenario, unlike other fixed income alternatives

Inflation Hedge

Contractual rent escalators built-in to lease agreements and exposure to underlying real estate provide a potential inflation hedge

Real Estate Appreciation

Benefits from potential property upside via improvement in tenant’s credit or general market sentiment

Net Lease Opportunities

~$29 trillion of addressable sale-leaseback assets

There are approximately $29 trillion of addressable sale-leaseback assets across the U.S., Canada, and Europe across public and private markets. We believe there is vast and untapped opportunity in net lease for those select firms with the experience and expertise to capitalize.

We believe that companies may want to enter into a sale-leaseback for a variety of reasons, including potentially unlocking liquidity that is otherwise trapped in non-cash producing real estate, which can be used to further expand and enhance their businesses.
