AEI is one of America’s most experienced sponsors of commercial property investment programs for both investment and 1031 exchange purposes. During the past 43 years, AEI has sponsored 134 net leased property offerings representing the investment capital of more than 20,000 investors nationwide. Nearly all of AEI’s net lease property offerings have been structured without debt to provide investors with a lower risk investment opportunity. AEI investments are managed by a professional team of real estate, investment, financial, and legal experts. Considered to be one of the first securities firm in America to offer a securitized 1031 exchange solution, AEI offered its first fractional 1031 exchange investment in 1992. AEI was also the first to apply for, and receive, a favorable private letter ruling from the IRS affirming the use of securitized real estate as replacement property in a 1031 exchange.
