Shing added, “The launch of the Cottonwood Founders
Portfolio Fund is a momentous milestone in our company’s nine-year history.

“Investor support has never been more critical as we
identify valuable, high-profile opportunities across the country that are in
alignment with our objectives and benefit both our investors and our bottom
line. Adding the Fund to our wide and deep resources creates leverage and
opportunity and bolsters great efficiency in our deal making process going
forward.”

In addition to the $200 million in commitments from existing
partners, Cottonwood has aligned itself with a 10 percent co-investment. As
part of this high-growth, high-reward, risk-adjusted real estate fund,
investors will have access to exclusive, high-potential investments and the
option to take distributions every quarter, limiting the lock-up period to
three years.

Working in tandem with the Fund, Cottonwood retains more
than $700 million in commitments from separate accounts.
