Why Invest

The HIT has distinguished itself as a fixed-income investment manager with a specialization in an important market niche — multifamily finance. This specialization along with focused management of its portfolio of mortgage backed securities provides important advantages for pension plans seeking the benefits of a fixed-income investment. The HIT's investment record is described in detail in the section on Portfolio Performance.

A Premier Fixed-Income Option

With its focus on multifamily securities and its consistent history of competitive risk-adjusted returns, the HIT maintains a highly competitive position with respect to its industry benchmark.

Low Credit Risk

To keep credit risk to a minimum, the HIT invests primarily in Government/Agency credit quality securities – insured or guaranteed by the U.S. government or a government-sponsored enterprise. (Link to Benchmark page).

Unique Market Niche

The HIT is an internally managed fund that actively seeks investments in newly originated multifamily securities, providing investors with important diversification within the fixed-income sector. Because it originates multifamily investments, the HIT is able to negotiate terms beneficial to its portfolio — such as prepayment protections — rather than simply buying and selling securities.

Staff Expertise

The HIT has developed an expert staff with a notable depth of knowledge in multifamily finance and portfolio management, as well as a deep commitment to the investment goals of union pension beneficiaries.

Collateral Benefits

HIT investments generate numerous collateral benefits important to working people, such as creating union jobs, expanding the supply of affordable housing and promoting community development.

Nearly 50 Years of Experience

The HIT builds on nearly 50 years of experience in putting investment capital to work for union pension beneficiaries.
