About Us

SIH Capital Group was built on the mission of providing a consistent preferred income to our accredited investors without using Wall Street investments. What makes us different is our investor roots and core values. While other fund operators find scores of reasons to charge fees, we charge no management or placement fees to our limited partners. Our profit comes after you have received your full preferred return — not a penny before. Our model is built for simplicity, transparency, and honesty. Those are the three attributes that we looked for when we make our investments; the returns have always followed suit.

About What We Do And How We Got Here

SIH Capital Group has a core competency in evaluating certain niche industries. We are firm believers in staying within our focus area- alternative assets including commercial real estate, private real estate notes and ATM funds. Within these industries, we invest in a diversified portfolio of assets located within the United States wide geographic footprint. The commonalities in our geographic search are population growth, landlord-friendly laws, jobs, and income growth. Once we have identified these markets, we find outstanding operators who focus on those markets and who have a long history of making consistent distributions with a business plan that’s been executed multiple times.

This formula of investing in excellent markets with trusted operators is not groundbreaking; the problem is every operator in the commercial real estate space says they are the best operator, in the best market, in the best asset class, and with the best business plan around. The ability to identify the best performers was not a skill that was developed overnight — we have spent years developing these relationships, performing the due diligence, and investing in prior deals to reach our goal of having a curated group of operators that SIH Capital Group invests with. We are proud of reaching our goal and look forward to sharing with you a fund that can provide you with preferred returns similar to what you can expect from a balanced stock market portfolio without any of the wall street investments.
