About Us

Beginning in 2014, we set out to build fixed-income funds that are tailored to the needs of veterans and industry-leading professionals. We found that investing in stabilized, single-tenant properties with investment-grade tenants leads to consistent dividend yield. The result is a product that is easily understood, producing consistent quarterly distributions that are above market, with low underlying risk and volatility, which makes it perfect for the fixed income portion of a balanced portfolio.

INTRODUCING BATTLE MONUMENT GROUP

Battle Monument Group has launched and manages a series of private real estate funds focused on providing stable fixed income to over 400 investors, consisting largely of military veterans and industry-leading professionals.  With a ten-year track record of consistent yield, it is no surprise that BMG experiences a nearly 70% reinvestment rate from existing investors. 

Our product focus is on single-tenant commercial properties with investment-grade tenants and a long-term lease. We specialize in long-term investment in defensive assets, with an emphasis on discount retailers, like Dollar General, in secondary and tertiary markets.

These dynamics have led to an opportunity, and we have found a valuable niche in this sub-market. There are 19,000+ Dollar General Stores located in smaller markets with low price points. The market price for these properties, taken individually, is lower than their long-term value in an organized portfolio.

We would be honored to put some capital to work for you. Please use our contact form to get in touch or reach out to one of the partners to discuss our Funds.
