Schorsch’s AR Global to sell BDC adviser to Benefit Street Partners
While terms were not released, the price tag could be as much as $70 million
AR Global, the alternative investment sponsor controlled by Nicholas Schorsch, said on Monday it had reached an agreement to sell the investment adviser of Business Development Corp. of America, a nontraded business development company it started, to Benefit Street Partners, the credit investment arm of Providence Equity Partners, a private equity firm.
Investment advisers to BDCs and nontraded REITs provide management services to those entities and collect fees for doing so.
Blue Vault is just what advisors need to size up the different offerings in the nontraded REIT market. Just as importantly, it’s what the industry needs to encourage best practices among REITs.
