Sortis Income Fund Delivers 10th Consecutive Quarter of Returns That Exceed Target

PORTLAND, Ore. – July 30, 2019 – Sortis Income Fund LLC announced an 11.45% net annualized return to its investors for the second quarter of 2019, and an 11.39% net annualized return year-to-date. The Sortis Income Fund, a real estate mortgage fund that holds short-term notes collateralized by real estate, is managed by Sortis Holdings Inc. (SOHI).

The fund returned 12.24% to investors on an annualized basis in 2017, and 11.12% on an annualized basis for 2018, exceeding the fund’s 10% to 11% target return for investors. The fund is accessible via the Fidelity Wealthscape platform or directly from Sortis Holdings at www.sortisholdings.com/funds.

“We’ve now delivered 10 consecutive quarters of earnings that surpass our target,” said Jef Baker, fund officer. “While we’re producing very attractive yields for investors, our approach continues to be maintaining conservative loan-to-value ratios.”

“Sortis’ number one goal is investor principal protection and we do that through an average 65% loan-to-value, first-position real estate portfolio, with an average maturity of eight months or less,” said Morgan Smith, fund officer. “As a result of its conservative underwriting processes, Sortis has not taken back any real estate assets since its inception.”

The Sortis Income Fund LLC is an unlevered real estate note fund that allows quarterly distributions or reinvestment at investor discretion. Liquidity is also available after an initial six months, subject to short term loan maturities in its portfolio. Sortis recently extended its family of funds into the real estate equity world with the launch of a $100 million Opportunity Zone Fund.
