Solutions for Investors
For over 50 years, Boston Financial has worked with more than 200 institutional investors to build and preserve affordable housing nationwide through low-income housing tax credit (LIHTC) funds and preservation equity impact funds. We work with national, regional, and community banks, insurance companies, and Fortune 500 companies, as well as pension funds, endowments, and family offices.
As an experienced and sustainable fund sponsor, we offer:
- Exceptional performance on behalf of our investors. We have a decades-long track record of delivering risk-adjusted returns and tax benefits while minimizing risk through a proactive credit and risk management culture.
- Delivering social and economic impact. We can help you achieve an outstanding rating while meeting Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) obligations, customizing benefits to investment properties (i.e., education, financial literacy, healthcare, childcare, English as a second language), reducing corporate tax liability, and achieving other investment and impact goals.
- Our originations platform is national in scope resulting in more diverse fund offerings. We have long-term relationships with thousands of experienced affordable housing developers – all with a demonstrated record of accomplishment in building, rehabilitating, and managing quality affordable housing communities from coast to coast.
- We manage the largest syndicated portfolio in the affordable housing industry. Our large base of recurring revenue allows us to withstand volatility and short-term market fluctuations and gives us access to a large repository of data and market trends to inform our underwriting and portfolio management.
We believe everyone deserves a safe, quality, affordable place to live and, by working together, we can make that belief a reality.
