Q. What is a syndication?


A syndication, relative to commercial real estate investing and value-add syndication, it is a structure in which a General Partner (GP) pools money from investors/Limited Partners (LPs). The GP (also referenced as “Syndicator” or “Sponsor”) implements the business plan and provides a return to LPs who have a limited (or passive role) in the project.

Real estate syndication is an effective way for investors to pool their financial and intellectual resources to invest in properties and projects much bigger than they could afford or manage on their own.
