Russ Allen Prince: Does Bluerock see any alternative asset classes outside of real estate that may be attractive in the current market environment?
Kamfar: Given high inflation and the rising rate environment, investors are struggling to find compelling income options. We at Bluerock are excited about yet another historically institutional asset class that we are making available to individual investors. Senior secured loans, when invested in via a collateralized loan obligation, offer opportunities for high single-digit income returns, with floating rates that adjust to current interest rates.
