Nontraded BDCs Post Annualized Return of 14.7%

December 9, 2016 | Blue Vault


Nontraded BDCs this year have produced a median annualized return of 14.7%. Through the end of September 2016, BDCs have performed exceptionally well despite the slowest capital raise in four years.

“Unfortunately, many investors are missing out on these returns because financial advisors have backed off of nontraded fund sales in the wake of recent regulations. Not only have BDCs been able to produce a consistent distribution income for investors, but most BDCs have seen significant increases in their net asset values,” says Jared Schneider, a Managing Partner at Blue Vault.

The unannualized median return for the nine months ended September 30, 2016 was 11.05%, and at Blue Vault we expect to see further gains through the end of the year. You can find out more about individual BDC performance in the Q3 2016 Nontraded BDC Industry Review, which will be released the week of December 12.

“Always, but especially in this day of lawsuits and ever increasing regulations, the responsibility for a financial advisor t do their own due diligence on products they sell falls squarely on themselves. No one is going to take greater interest in protecting their practice than they are. We use the Blue Vault Partners Nontraded REIT Review to keep us informed of the performance of every single nontraded REIT. Finally, complete transparency is available for advisors using nontraded REITs. Every advisor using REITs in their practice should make the small annual investment of subscribing to Blue Vault’s reporting services.”
