CAMPBELL, Calif. – August 21, 2013 — GCA Equity Partners, LLC (, today announced that the GCA California Real Estate Fund, LLC provided its investors with a net annualized return of 14.0% for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013. Investors who have participated since inception have realized a net annualized return of 13.3%.

The fund provides short-term financing for the purchase and rehabilitation of distressed properties as well as for new construction.

The fund finances investors and developers of real estate projects with short term appreciation potential – usually in the form of remodeling or new construction. In return for financing the project, the fund collects interest while the project is in progress, and a share of the profit once the project has been completed.

“Investors are taking note of our strong and consistent performance,” said Charles Tralka, fund manager for GCA Equity Partners. “Our unique profit sharing approach and focus on risk reduction has allowed our investors to get excellent returns on our diversified and secured portfolio of financing projects.” Wondering what else GCA Equity Partners is up to?
