The NPI is a quarterly, composite total return for private commercial real estate properties located in the United States. The NPI includes operating office, retail, industrial, apartment, or hotel properties accounted for on a market value basis and includes the impact of leverage employed on the properties in the index. The NPI Levered Index is illustrative of historical average annualized commercial real estate returns on a gross property level leveraged basis, and these historical returns may not be indicative of future results. Leverage adds additional risks because leverage providers generally get paid first and may have a full or partial recourse claim against a portfolio. Such real estate return data should not be used to estimate returns of Jamestown Invest investments. While Jamestown Invest 1, LLC may acquire properties that meet some of the NPI criteria, it may acquire properties that do not meet such criteria. Further, Jamestown Invest property returns may have a better or worse average annualized return performance compared to the index as each real estate investment is unique in nature, which is inherently problematic for benchmarking to the composite returns of a highly diversified index.
