Making Returns and Improving Lives with Ted Jasinski at BlackHawk Advisors

Ted Jasinski is the co-founder of BlackHawk Advisors, who specializes in identifying, acquiring, and optimizing Manufactured Housing Communities.

“After several years of working as a general manager for a hedge fund administrator, I came to a point where I had done everything I could possibly do with it. At the same time, my business partner, who I had worked with back at Kidder, reached out to me and we eventually formed BlackHawk Advisors. We originally started our business in private lending. But we saw an opportunity in structuring funds and bringing excellent returns to investors through Manufactured Housing Communities.

Manufactured Housing Communities are affordable housing. This is an asset that is a double-line investment where you can make solid returns while also improving people’s lives. You don't just buy a park and snap your fingers. We work on these communities’ by paving, making aesthetic improvements, landscaping, removing crime/bad tenants, etc.

There are a lot of real estate buyers that do well, but with our hedge fund background, we could structure funds and bring a nice return to investors. And now that the market has changed significantly, there's a lot more attention to it, 10 to 12% of the industry is institutionally owned. This is one of the great risk reward opportunities where you get high rewards with controlled risk.”

BlackHawk Advisors seeks and employs opportunistic investment strategies with a focus on real assets. Their initial strategy focuses on alternative yield within a private lending strategy to residential builders in the Richmond, VA region. Core loans revolve around new home construction, renovations, and unimproved lots. Their second strategy involves partnering with Commercial real estate experts (or Park Operators) to identify, acquire, and optimize mobile home communities ("MHCs") within the mid-atlantic and southeastern regions of the United States.
