The Austin Housing Conservancy is an open-ended social impact private equity fund for high-net-worth individuals, family offices, private foundations, institutional investors, Bank CRA programs, larger foundations and others. Unlike other impact investment funds, which invest in enterprises with social or environmental missions, the Austin Housing Conservancy Fund is the first to invest long-term equity directly in the problem it endeavors to solve: moderate and middle-income housing affordability.
Our mission is to purchase and preserve multifamily properties to maintain affordable rental rates for our community’s teachers, first responders, medical professionals and others vital to Austin’s day-to-day livability and success. With a flexible, discretionary investment strategy, the Fund delivers to investors high single-digit financial returns, as well as social and environmental outcomes that directly benefit Austin’s working professionals.
The Austin Housing Conservancy Fund is counseled by a five-member LPAC tasked with overseeing the valuation process—including the selection of valuation firms—and approving annual net asset value.
