Long-Lasting Economic GrowthCambodia has not had a recession since the mid-1990s and was completely left out of the past three recessions which the rest of the world suffered.
High Yields and AppreciationRental yields on Cambodian property can easily exceed 10% and capital appreciation enhances this even more.
Political StabilityThe days of the Khmer Rouge are long since over. In the past 20 years, Cambodia has transformed into a democracy and a full member of the international community.
Business FriendlinessRental income is only taxed at 10%, there are no exchange controls, and every sector is open to foreign investment.
Solid FundamentalsReal estate in Cambodia is undervalued compared to the rest of Southeast Asia. So far, the lack of large international developers has helped keep prices down.

What assets does Khmer Ventures have under management?
As of November 2016, we have $325,000 worth of investor financing. We’ve been operating for five months and have closed deals on three apartments.
Is there a minimum purchase requirement?
The minimum purchase requirement is two hundred shares, each worth US$250, for a total of US$50,000.
How is the fund structured?
The fund is structured as a Cambodian LLC which directly owns property. Our owners are given shares in the company and own real estate, along with the rights to their part of its profit, as shareholders of the company.
What input do shareholders have?
Because they are the legal owners of a company, our shareholders ultimately decide the direction of the fund. We as managers are, in essence, simply employees of the fund. Votes may be taken on anything the shareholders wish.
How are profits distributed?
Every 3 months, the fund’s rental income is distributed to shareholders as a proportion of their ownership percentage.
How are new investors brought in? Is there dilution?
New investors are seamlessly brought in. As the fund grows, everyone gets a proportionately smaller part of a bigger pie. New investors do not receive a dividend until the end of the quarter after they purchase shares. For example, an investor buying shares in November will get his first dividend the following March. This prevents dilution and gives us time to allocate new capital.
What are the fees?
The management fee is 2% of the fund’s total appraised value per year. The front-end load upon purchasing shares is 3% of the total invested amount. In addition, a performance fee of 20% of the fund’s total annual realized return is applicable.
Can I sell my shares?
Yes. You may sell your shares to any third-party. In addition, the fund is often willing to buy back shares, making it unnecessary to search for a third party buyer. However, there is a two-year lock-in period for new investors.
Can I visit you in Phnom Penh and see the apartments?
Yes, but only for our investors. The apartments are private property, usually have people living in them, and are not something we’re comfortable showing to help us sell shares. But the apartments are owned by our investors who, depending on what we’re doing at the time, can see anything from the outside of a rented building to a renovation in progress.
The Khmer Ventures property fund is one of the best ways to profit from the growth of frontier markets. We pride ourselves on being a hands-off, low-risk, flexible solution for investors located anywhere in the world.
Potential for high-growth in the Cambodian real estate market is shown by strong economic fundamentals, Phnom Penh’s growing international business presence, and a trend of rising property values and rental yields.
