Park View OZ REIT Team

Park View OZ REIT is Sponsored by Park View Investments

We are a qualified opportunity fund (QOF) and a real estate investment trust (REIT) that offers freely tradable non-listed equity shares. Our shares are available to both accredited and non-accredited investors.

We combine our value-driven investment process with a highly tax-efficient structure. Park View OZ REIT’s investors can benefit from two recently enacted tax incentives created by the Tax Cuts and Job Act of 2017. The first is the creation of QOFs which offer substantial tax savings on capital gains. The second is the qualified business income deduction which reduces the taxes due on the income we pay out to shareholders as dividends. Additionally, the REIT structure is highly tax efficient itself.

We strive to provide our investors with an institutional-quality commercial real estate portfolio in a fund that is highly tax-efficient and low fee.
