Yield is the return on an investment or the amount of profit, stated as a percentage of the amount invested. Also known as the rate of return. Yields can be depicted in a variety of ways including levered and unlevered and before tax and after tax. As example calculations, assume an investment property is acquired for $1,000,000 using $200,000 of equity and $800,000 of debt carrying a 5.0% interest-only rate. If the property generates net operating income (NOI) of $80,000, then the unlevered yield is 8.0% ($80,000 NOI divided by $1,000,000 purchase price), and the levered yield is 20.0% ($80,000 NOI less $40,000 interest payment equals $40,000 divided by $200,000 of equity).
Assuming the investor has a marginal tax rate of 30.0%, then the after-tax unlevered yield would be 5.6% ($80,000 NOI less $24,000 in income tax ($80,000 times 30.0%) equals $56,000 divided by $1,000,000 purchase price).
Following this example, assuming the property generates $30,000 per year in depreciation allowances, then the property would produce an after-tax levered yield of 18.5% ($80,000 NOI less $40,000 of interest deductions less $30,000 of depreciation allowance equals $10,000 of taxable income times 30.0% marginal tax rate equals $3,000 tax liability.

Investing in alternative assets involves higher risks than traditional investments and is suitable only for sophisticated investors. Alternative investments are often sold by prospectus that discloses all risks, fees, and expenses. They are not tax efficient and an investor should consult with his/her tax advisor prior to investing. Alternative investments have higher fees than traditional investments and they may also be highly leveraged and engage in speculative investment techniques, which can magnify the potential for investment loss or gain and should not be deemed a complete investment program. The value of the investment may fall as well as rise and investors may get back less than they invested.
