Compound Your Returns, Not Your Costs: Tax Alpha in Real Estate Private Equity

Nick Bruce

Presented by
Nick Bruce

Founding Partner and Head of Investments & Research, Arqitel

Session date and time 
May 2, 2023
7:20 - 7:45 a.m.     

Real estate can be a highly tax-efficient way to grow income and wealth, however, traditional investment approaches often fail to maximize after-tax returns for taxable investors when they interrupt the compounding process that is so important to building wealth. As Charlie Munger once famously said, “The first rule of compounding: Never interrupt it unnecessarily.” During this session, we will review several of the favorable tax laws afforded to real estate private equity investors, how investors could leverage the tax code and the magnitude of after-tax returns of a tax-efficient real estate private equity strategy versus a tax-agnostic strategy. The result? Money that would otherwise be lost to taxes and third parties is instead allowed to compound, potentially leading to more than double the long-term wealth creation.
