About the Fund

Sentinel Opportunity Fund I, LLC (the “Fund” or “SOFI”) is a closed-end real estate investment fund. The Fund is an actively managed portfolio of privately-held commercial real estate assets. 



The Fund aims to deliver returns that stem from both ongoing income and capital appreciation, while maintaining minimal volatility and correlation with wider market trends.

Potential Benefits

Sentinel Opportunity Fund I has the potential to offer investors additional benefits beyond our traditional single-asset syndications. The fund structure is highly accretive to our strategy and operations:

Investment Diversification: 

Acquiring several assets through a diversified portfolio that spreads risk across various office, retail, and industrial properties and geographic locations.

Institutional Access:

Non-institutional investors often lack the capital needed to participate in larger, more lucrative deals. These larger deals typically come with economies of scale and can potentially offer higher returns and lower relative risk.

Competitive Advantage:

By aggregating a large pool of capital, the fund may be able secure deals more efficiently and often at better prices due to the ability to offer faster closings and on an all-cash basis.

Simplified Tax Reporting and Accelerated Depreciation:

Instead of dealing with the complexities of tax reporting for multiple properties, investors receive a single Form K-1 from the fund. Sentinel will utilize cost segregation studies to accelerated depreciation when applicable for additional tax benefits.

​Alignment of Interest:

As the General Partner, Sentinel will continue its best-in-class efforts to create alignment with its Limited Partners. Sentinel will commit up to $5MM of its own capital into the fund and will employ a European-style waterfall that prioritizes the return of capital to LPs before the GP starts receiving its share of profits.
