Bluerock Total Income+ Real Estate Fund has paid a third quarter distribution of $0.5001 per share, or 1.31% for the quarter, based on the share price of $38.10 (A-shares) for shareholders of record as of September 15, 2022. This distribution amount represents an annualized rate of 5.25%* based on the current share price, marking the Fund’s 39th consecutive quarterly distribution. Since inception in 2012 at $25.00 per share, TIPRX has paid nearly $15 per share in total distributions to its shareholders. In addition to these quarterly distributions, TIPRX NAV has grown over 52% from $25 to $38.10 per share (as of 9.15.2022) and has generated a 9.58% annualized return since inception, with positive returns in each and every calendar year since inception. Due to this growth, shareholders who purchased at inception NAV of $25/share will receive a distribution amount at an annual rate of approximately 8.0% based on their original investment amount.
“While persistent inflation and rising interest rates have created turbulence and steep declines in the stock and bond markets in 2022, TI+ has continued to provide a consistent 5.25% annual distribution rate* and has generated over 425 basis points (4.25%) of annual appreciation over and above the distributions since inception, with almost no drawdown this year,” said Jeffrey Schwaber, CEO of Bluerock Capital Markets. “In fact, while the leading stock and bond indexes have dropped 17% and 12% respectively, TI+ is up nearly 16% year to date,” added Schwaber.
