AEI is one of America’s most experienced sponsors of commercial property investment programs for both investment and 1031 exchange purposes. AEI investments are managed by a professional team of real estate, investment, financial, and legal experts. Considered to be the first securities firm in America to offer a securitized 1031 exchange solution, AEI offered its first fractional 1031 exchange investment in 1992. From 1992 through 2014, AEI sponsored 88 TIC offerings involving a single property. From January 2014 through September 2019, AEI sponsored 15 prior DST offerings involving 57 properties located in 23 states. All of the properties offered were single tenant, debt-free, net leased commercial properties. 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.
