BY Business Wire | AGENCY | 11/30/22 01:09 PM EST

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- RREEF Property Trust, Inc. , a publicly registered, daily NAV REIT that is advised by DWS through an affiliate, has acquired a 100 percent interest in the Class D Certificate (?Class D? or ?B Piece?) and the related interest-only securities of a fixed rate Freddie Mac Multifamily CMBS Securitization known as FREMF 2021-K150 (?K150?) for a total investment of approximately $30.9 million.

K150 comprises a $1.2 billion pool of 52 multifamily commercial mortgages in diverse markets with a weighted average loan-to-value and debt yield of 57.9 percent and 8.2 percent, respectively, as of October 2022. As of the closing of the investment, the largest concentrations of the underlying properties were in Florida (14% of the unpaid principal balance, or ?UPB?), California (15% of the UPB), Texas (12% of the UPB), New Hampshire (10% of the UPB) and Utah (9% of the UPB). In addition, as of the closing, the underlying properties represent various multifamily subtypes with 73% of the properties being garden-style.

?We continue to remain constructive on the multifamily sector as we believe strong residential market fundamentals in the U.S. will persist as the result of low current vacancy rates, low housing supply and a disciplined construction pipeline,? said Todd Henderson, Chairman of the Board of RREEF Property Trust and Head of Real Estate, Americas at DWS. ?The investment in K150 underscores our ability to invest across the real estate capital stack in order to achieve the REIT?s objectives of providing investors with attractive current income, capital preservation and NAV appreciation.?

War, terrorism, sanctions, economic uncertainty, trade disputes, public health crises and related geopolitical events have led, and, in the future, may lead to significant disruptions in U.S. and world economies and markets, which may lead to increased market volatility and may have significant adverse effects on the fund and its investments.

Important risk information: RREEF Property Trust (?RPT?) is a speculative security and, as such, involves a high degree of risk. An investment in RPT involves the same risks associated with an investment in real estate, such as market risk, interest rate risk, risks related to property diversification, tenant turnover and the use of leverage. There is no guarantee that any real estate strategy, including RPT?s, will be successful. There is no public market for RPT?s shares of common stock. RPT?s shares should be considered as having only limited liquidity and at times may be illiquid. RPT?s redemption of shares will likely be the only way for you to dispose of your shares, and RPT?s redemption plan contains limitations on the number of shares RPT will redeem in any calendar quarter. RPT?s board of directors may modify or suspend RPT?s redemption plan, as well as its investment policies without stockholder approval, which could alter the nature of your investment. The purchase price and redemption price for RPT?s shares is based on RPT?s NAV, which may not accurately reflect the actual price at which its assets could be liquidated on any given day because valuation of properties is inherently subjective. RPT?s failure to remain qualified as a REIT would have an adverse effect on its operations and its ability to make distributions to its stockholders. Distributions are not guaranteed, are made at the discretion of RPT?s board of directors and may be paid from sources other than cash flow from operations, including, without limitation, the sale of assets, borrowings or offering proceeds, and RPT has no limits on the amounts it may pay from such sources. RPT is dependent upon its advisor to conduct its operations, and RPT?s advisor will face conflicts of interest as a result of, among other things, time constraints, allocation of investment opportunities and the substantial fees RPT will pay to its advisor. The value of RPT?s shares will fluctuate with the portfolio of the underlying real estate properties. Shares sold will be at a price which may be more or less than the original price paid for the shares by the investor. Investors may be subject to adverse tax consequences if RPT does not qualify as a REIT for federal tax purposes. In addition, distributions from current or accumulated earnings and profits are taxed as ordinary income. Data provided by RREEF America, the advisor to RREEF Property Trust.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.

Before investing, consider the funds' investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Contact Fidelity for a prospectus or, if available, a summary prospectus containing this information. Read it carefully.
