The Sovereign’s Capital Real Estate team deploys capital to serve tenants and enrich communities, generating attractive current income and long-term capital gains.
The Real Estate team invests in U.S.-based real estate alongside faith-driven managers who recognize the opportunity for impact within the spaces and communities that they serve. Real estate operators have the unique ability to cultivate environments in which all people can experience authentic community, redemptive relationships, and neighborly love. This includes the spaces they live, work, and gather. We pursue equity interests with an emphasis on current yield and have a preference for value-add, housing sector strategies that are led by excellent operators.
Our investment team is made up of professionals with deep industry experience.

What we look for
We look to partner with both faith-driven and experienced operators in real estate, who are committed to providing a distinct level of care to the tenants and communities that they serve while delivering strong financial performance.
Housing Sector Focus
We believe there is long-term fundamental support for housing given a structural supply shortfall, along with advanced development of faith-driven impact strategies within the operations of multi-family housing.
Income and Appreciation
Across our portfolio, we seek to invest in properties that offer a clear path to current income generation in addition to long-term capital appreciation

Welden Field has been in the multi-family space for almost 50 years. We have had dozens of lead investors during that time in our deals. Not one of them has brought to the table as many pieces of the puzzle as [Sovereign's Capital] has. We don’t just call them with good or bad news; we call them to help us interpret the news. They have been a great strategic partner and friend.Chuck Welden | Welden Field
Sovereign's is more than just an investor for Hilltop; they bring genuine friendship and fellowship to our team and provide formal counsel as a part of our Advisory Board. We have called on them with difficult personnel issues and they listened carefully, asked questions, provided feedback, and then went the extra mile to survey other wise counsel in the market to gain additional perspective. The team at Sovereign's is akin to a 'brother' to us, regularly inquiring about how they can support us personally and professionally, and participating in prayer sessions with and for us. Their genuine concern extends beyond the real estate investments to the individuals involved.David Wylie | Hilltop
