Strategic Storage Trust II Inc. (SST II), a self-storage real estate investment trust (REIT) sponsored by SmartStop Asset Management LLC, has amended a revolving line of credit with KeyBank. The amended credit facility has a maximum borrowing capacity of $105 million that may be increased up to $500 million, according to a press release. The REIT intends to use the financial flexibility to fund expansion.

 “We are excited to complete this amendment to our credit facility, as it allows us greater flexibility to execute on our growth strategy,” said H. Michael Schwartz, chairman and CEO of SST II. “This is an extension of our long-term relationship with KeyBank and will allow us to acquire prime self storage properties throughout the United States and Toronto, Canada.”

I have been in the financial services industry for 20 years and our firm provides an education platform that gets clients to “think differently” about their financial picture.  For many years we have communicated to clients the need to diversify their portfolios using alternative asset classes and more specifically, private non-traded investments.  Due diligence on these types of financial vehicles is essential and when I learned about Blue Vault in 2010, our firm immediately began using their material as a tool to build confidence in the minds of our advisors on which alternatives to recommend to clients.  I am impressed with the way Blue Vault continues to add value to their subscribers and I view their publication as a tremendous resource in today’s complex world.
