Investment manager at Landmark Return Multiplier Fund would strive to ensure health of each investment through regular returns to the Investors and would ensure absolute transparency to Investors.

Strategy

Landmark Return Multiplier Fund would primarily focus on residential segment. Landmark Return Multiplier Fund would follow a defensive investment strategy which would mean investment opportunities offering regular attractive return along with upside.It would also opportunistically invest in transactions with preferred return having upside sharing. Projects which are under construction and are expected to get completed in 2-3 years time frame. Invest in projects where major approvals are in place and projects which have short to medium term funding requirement. And they largely focus on top 4 cities which include Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru and Pune. Tier II and Tier III cities would largely be avoided unless the opportunity is compelling
