Oyster has a successful track record raising capital for the various fund structures it creates. There are three main sources of capital deployed across Oyster's property funds:
- Retail Equity: Oyster will make a public offer to investors and provide them with an opportunity to take up investment parcels in a particular fund. These parcels are typically offered up to investors at a minimum size of either $50,000 or $100,000 in specific asset funds, often referred to as syndicates. Oyster's diversified PIE structured Direct Property Fund seeks a minimum investment of $10,000 and $1,000 increments thereafter.
- Wholesale Equity: Capital is raised via Oyster’s qualified wholesale investors where typically minimum investment parcels of $750,000 or $1,000,000 are made available to investors.
- Institutional Equity: Through its network of institutional relationships, Oyster has the ability to raise capital from institutional partners and create tailored fund structures to suit core, core plus or value add investment mandates.
Oyster’s ability to raise capital from these various sources provides it with flexibility to continue purchasing appropriate property at most stages throughout the economic cycle
