Jason Ricks, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of Liberty Real Estate Fund LLC, joins Buck Joffrey on episode 260 of the Wealth Formula podcast. In the episode, Jason and Buck discuss how Single-Tenant Net-Leased (STNL) real estate has the most advantageous structure for investors and businesses. The benefits of STNL, also known as Triple Net (NNN), properties include stable monthly income coming from creditworthy tenants who pay a property’s taxes, insurance and maintenance fees. Jason also shares how Liberty has backed a diverse portfolio of net lease properties by tokenizing the hard assets with the blockchain technology of Security Tokens. These digital securities allow investors all over the world to invest in Liberty’s diverse Triple Net lease properties while increasing their liquidity and investor optionality.
