12.6% Annualized Net Return to Fund Investors for Q4, 2013
Seventh Consecutive Quarter of Double-Digit Performance
13.2% Annualized Net Return Since Fund Inception

CAMPBELL, Calif. – February 27, 2014 — GCA Equity Partners, LLC (www.gcaequitypartners.com), today announced that its GCA California Real Estate Fund, LLC provided investors with a net annualized return of 12.6% for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2013.   This quarter marks the seventh consecutive period of double-digit performance and has enabled the fund to continue to meet the managers’ goal of consistent 10% to 15% net annualized returns.  Since inception, the fund has delivered a 13.2% net annualized return.

The Fund finances real estate improvement projects with strong short-term (typically one year or less) appreciation potential.   The appreciation can come through remodeling, new construction, or land development.  The fund earns income from interest on secured loans and which typically also have a profit sharing component.  Together the regular interest and profit sharing (known as “contingent interest”) enable the fund to target higher returns than those typically achieved by conventional mortgage pools.

“Very few income-producing investments deliver this level of return to their investors,” said Tom Braegelmann, CEO of GCA Equity Partners.  “Our goal is to continue to deliver low double digit returns through a secured and diversified portfolio of loans.”
