FAQ

Q

What assets does Khmer Ventures have under management?

As of January 2017, we have $336,160 worth of investor financing. We’ve been operating for five months and have closed deals on three apartments.

Q

Is there a minimum purchase requirement?

The minimum purchase requirement is two hundred shares, each currently worth US$250.865, for a total of US$50,173.

Q

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.

Q

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.

Q

How are profits distributed?

 Every 3 months, the fund’s rental income is distributed to shareholders as a proportion of their ownership percentage. 

Q

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.

Q

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.

Q

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.

Q

Can I visit you in Phnom Penh and see the apartments?

Yes and several people already have, 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.
