Welcome To SG | T2

SG | T2 is a joint venture started in 2016 between Sanders Group (SG) and T2 Capital Partners (T2). This partnership set up a Multifamily Impact Fund focused primarily on workforce housing. Our mission is to make life better in the communities that we serve, one interaction at a time. Our goal is to deliver above average risk-adjusted returns to our Investors. SG | T2’s combined achievements include 1,300+ limited partners, $800+ million deployed since inception and $450+ million combined AUM.

Why choose SG | T2?

With principals that have over 50 years of combined experience, SG | T2 (a Minority Business Enterprise) is a fully-integrated real estate firm that stands ready to assist. As contrarian investors, we focus on preserving affordable workforce housing. In applying an opportunistic approach, we pursue assets that may be overlooked by other institutional investors. We believe our primary strengths lie in our relationships, experience and ability to quickly and intelligently apply capital.

Investment Strategy

SG | T2 sources and identifies opportunities in alignment with the interests of Citi’s mandate to preserve affordable housing while also achieving strong risk-adjusted returns in the multi-family sector with a focus on affordable, mixed income (80% of Area Median Income) that span across opportunistic, value-add, core and core-plus assets in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Tennessee & Kentucky.

​Manage $40-200 million of Community Reinvestment Act (“CRA”) qualifying private equity funds, the investment objective of which will be the preservation of affordable multifamily housing across the United States. The Fund will acquire multifamily housing primarily for the benefit of low to moderate income individuals and communities (including workforce, regulated and mixed-income housing) with a commitment to community development and engaging diverse professionals throughout the acquisition and ownership infrastructures.
