Smart Vacation Homes in Inspiring Places
Wander is an alternative real estate fund sponsor specializing in building a network of short-term rental smart homes across the globe that guests can access with the tap of a button. Wander was founded to solve the problem of the frustrating experiences of trying to work while traveling: uncomfortable beds, unreliable internet connections and uninspiring locations. Wander owns and offers smart homes with full amenities in inspiring places across the United States with new locations launching every month. The Wander Atlas REIT offers investors access to competitive investment returns in this emerging real estate sector.
“It was important to us to leverage a sophisticated third-party fund admin with a strong track record,” said John Andrew Entwistle, Founder and CEO of Wander. “Phoenix American is by far the best we evaluated. They’ve been a perfect partner.”
50 years of client-oriented fund administration
With the growing variety and sophistication of alternative investment funds and the increasing demands of both investors and regulators, advanced operational solutions are critical to the success of today’s fund sponsors. Phoenix American has combined the most efficient systems and precision back office processes in alternative investments since its origins as a fund sponsor in 1972. Phoenix American’s industry-leading STAR-XMS transfer agent system is the result of the company’s direct experience as a fund sponsor as well as decades of experience as an administrator for alternative investment funds.
