Our Company Riaz Capital is a fully integrated development, construction and property management company, focused on addressing the changing housing needs of the millennial generation. Our latest projects are aimed at creating affordable and conveniently located housing for young professionals in the East Bay through ground-up development projects. The Bay Area's tremendous growth has resulted in skyrocketing housing costs forcing young professionals to make hard choices about privacy and savings to find a reasonable housing option to call home. On average, Bay Area millennials are spending 48% of their income on housing versus a national average of 25%. As a result, Riaz Capital has launched a number of new projects around a workforce housing strategy focused on providing the missing middle demographic rent homes that are comfortable, cool and most importantly work with their financial goals. We raised a $35M fund in 2018, which we are pairing with a larger fundraise in 2019 to implement this affordable-by-design concept throughout the East Bay, with a Company goal of creating over $1B in assets under management by 2025. We are seeking highly motivated, forward-thinking professionals to join our team in solving this important housing problem. The Riaz Capital team includes over 95 talented real estate investment, construction and operations professionals in Oakland. Our Principals have been successfully operating in the Bay Area since 1977. The Company currently owns and operates 1,100 units, with $300 Million of assets under management (AUM). Riaz Capital has maintained consistent growth over the last 5 years, and after the completion of three development projects currently in process, that number will increase to 1,400 units with $400 Million AUM by end of 2019. Our integrated group of companies across development, construction, and property management deliver efficiency and long-term thinking to all our projects while allowing us to create above-market returns for our investors.
