Investors who Support Veterans

The Academy Fund provides a portfolio of short-term loans on investment real estate projects led by military veterans. Serving as the financial backbone in these transactions, the Fund ensures security through a 1st lien position on the properties it finances. The loans are fueled by capital from our investors who receive monthly distributions as the loans get paid back.



Is this investment right for you?

Oversight & Sophistication

The Fund and its assets are custodied at Millennium Trust Company and an SEC Investment Advisor is the Advisor to the Fund.

Return on Investment

The income is fixed and can be paid monthly or reinvested. The annual rate is between 8.5% and 10% depending on the amount of your investment.

Supercharge your Savings

Our loans produce monthly income and can be a very good fit for your self-directed IRA.

Liquid Investment

If access to your money is important, redemptions can be requested at any time and are processed as quickly as practicable.


Another strategy to reduce risk is to invest in a diversified portfolio. Our strategy is to provide a portfolio of dozens of loans.


If preservation of your wealth is important to you, the Fund is secured by first lien position loans. Our loans are senior to all other debt as well as equity.

1. Character

Is the borrower cooperative, capable, and communicative? Or are they adversarial, elusive, and a jerk?

2. Capacity

Does the borrower have the capacity to handle this project? Or are they overloaded with too many commitments and not enough manpower?

3. Collateral

Does the collateral that secures the loan have clear title and is valued enough to fully cover the loan and a comfortable buffer? Or is it encumbered, hard to value, and not in an attractive area that would make performance on it (either by the borrower OR us should we take it back) difficult?

4. Conditions

Does the borrower have a solid exit? Or is the exit a bit gray and too speculative?

5. Capital

Does the borrower (or their partners) have enough capital to cover the required down payment and subsequent interest payments? Or are they scraping by and don't have a clear source of cash to cover necessary expenses and debt service?
