SAN RAFAEL, CA – Phoenix American, a leading fund administration provider, is pleased to announce its new client partnership with New York-based real estate investment and development firm, Time Equities Inc. (“TEI”).

TEI will benefit from Phoenix American’s combination of advanced technology, partner-oriented client service and long experience with the unique operational requirements of alternative investment funds.

I have been using Blue Vault Partners for the past five years. I have found them to be a valuable, unbiased resource when it comes to evaluating and comparing non-traded REITs. The reports help me analyze which sponsors are doing a responsible job of managing their offerings. This allows me to limit my REIT recommendations to only the most competitive products, and then track those REITs throughout their life cycle.
