Fund Strategy

Acquiring a Portfolio of Daycare Properties 

The General Partner’s objective is to create, over a period of time, a portfolio of daycare properties that provide exposure to this unique commercial property categoryWe are attracted to this sector by the long leases that are typically in place and the value associated with the Ministry of Education (MoE) license for the premises 

Target Annual Cash Return 

The SIPO for the Limited Partnership will include a target distribution to investors of at least 6.25% per annum (Cash Net Pre-Tax Annual Yield on Equity).  


There are a number of risks that could impact the performance and financial returns of the LP. Potential general and specific risks include, but are not limited to, the following:

Tenant Default or Non-Renewal: the Tenant of the Property, or the Tenants of Properties acquired in the future, may fail to pay the rental and outgoings (defaulting) which may affect projected returns. Also, the current tenant may not renew lease arrangements and a new tenant may be required. Costs, including lease incentives, may be required on re-leasing and there may be extended periods where a tenancy does not earn income.

Interest: Interest rates may increase and increase the mortgage repayments due from the Limited Partnership to the bank. 42.57% of the purchase price of the Properties will be funded by interest-bearing borrowings and the interest expense is a material expense for the LP. 

Damage or Destruction: A property may be destroyed and the event may not be adequately covered by the insurer of the Properties. The GP arranges the insurance on the Properties and recharges this cost to the tenants, in accordance with the leases.

Liquidity: Property is an inherently long-term investment and cannot be easily sold. A property may be sold at a loss in which case Limited Partners may not be able to recover the full amount of their original investment. There is no guarantee of capital gain on the Properties.

Capital Expenditure Risk: The capital expenditure for the Properties may be more than budgeted. Significant additional capital expenditure in excess of forecast amounts may be required for a number of reasons, including undertaking structural repairs or related work to bring a property up to a designated standard or to meet new requirements resulting from changes to current regulations or standards.

Actual results are likely to be different to the forecasts since anticipated events frequently do not occur as expected and the variation may be significant. Accordingly, Erskine + Owen, its shareholders, directors, employees, advisors, or agents nor any other person can provide any assurance with respect to such information.
