Sortis Rescue and Distress Opportunity Fund

Introducing the Sortis Rescue Fund

(Closed to new investment)

The Sortis Rescue Fund was launched to capitalize on the dislocation and market stress caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The subsequent economic fallout was deep and intense enough to create situational distressed opportunities, particularly in hospitality, retail, office, and select operating businesses.

Our team consistently finds a wide range of opportunities to deploy capital on behalf of investors across changing economic environments and market cycles, and this time of national and global distress is no exception. The SRF will not make broad market acquisitions but rather will source and acquire specifically targeted distressed assets in situations with strong value enhancement.

Opportunistic and distressed investing is our foundational strategy as real estate investment specialists. The core senior team at Sortis has deep rescue and distress experience including but not limited to working at all levels of the capital stack, placing debt and equity, acquiring distressed loans and REO, finishing particularly complicated projects, restructures, and bankruptcy. Sortis is uniquely suited for distress and the complexity surrounding it.

We have hands on experience at scale for even the largest most complex development projects, as proven by the $500+ million Macy’s project in Seattle. Our affiliated developer and construction management team have completed well over $1 billion in projects of all property types. Moving forward, Sortis will be considering distressed real estate opportunities as part of the Sortis Rescue Fund.
