“But I can make
15-18% every year!”

Some investors claim they could beat our healthy yet conservative 8-12% yield with other investments. So we did the math:

Invest $100,000 at age 25
Add $100,000 each year
Compound at 15% annually
Cash it all out at age 80

You would have $1,888,239,226.06, or nearly $1.9 billion. So why doesn’t anyone have that portfolio? Three simple truths:

1 Very few have the discipline to save a big portion of their income every year
2 Between ages 25 and 80, most people change their strategy, creating new risk, loss and setback
3 Nobody has ever made 15% on their entire investment every single year

The MSM approach:

Endurance running,
not home runs

We are far more concerned with protecting our investors’ downside than trying to stretch the yield by another percent. Over any period measured in decades, the slow and steady approach has always outperformed funds that swing for the fences.

We continually review and adjust our market and/or class focus. Over the past few years, the residential market has been in an upcycle, while retail presented its own dangers. So MSM focused on office, warehouse and flex properties, because that’s where the value lives right now

Current criteria:

Class A
Commercial/ Industrial
85%+ Turnkey
Tristate Territories
25%+ Equity

What others call radical transparency, we see as the basis for communication.

When you’re an MSM investor, there’s nothing we know that you do not. That’s not just a promise, it’s a fact of our existence.

In our book, the investment relationship only works if you sleep well knowing you entrusted your money in the right hands. Every minute of every day, we work to earn your trust that we will act responsibly with your money; that we will share every morsel of data with you; that we will do everything in our power to secure your equity and yield; and that we will always act with honor and integrity on your behalf—with assets, tenants and you.
