The IPA provides a strong, unified voice with state and federal legislators and industry regulatory agencies on the critical issues that affect our members.
The IPA supports individual investor access to a variety of asset classes with low correlation to the traded markets and historically available only to institutional investors, including: lifecycle real estate investment trusts (REITs) and perpetual life REITs, lifecycle business development companies (BDCs), interval and closed-end funds, energy and equipment leasing programs and real estate private equity offerings. These portfolio diversifying investment (PDI) products have been held in the accounts of more than 3 million individual investors. They remain a critical component of an effectively balanced investment portfolio and serve an essential capital formation function for the U.S. economy. The mission of the IPA is to advocate for PDIs through education and public awareness.
