CYwP Closes Fifth Fund and Raises More Than $40 Million


Current Yield with Participation Fund (CYwP Fund) and founder Ethan Assal have announced the close of CYwP Fund V at $32.6 million, along with CYwPMulti-family I, which raised $8 million.

“I’m thrilled that we’ve been able to close on CYwP Fund V and to offer over 130 high-net-worth investors this opportunity during an otherwise extremely challenging economic time,” said Assal. “It’s been very exciting to share the success these funds have had with those who have put their trust in us, most of whom have invested in multiple CYwP Funds.”

Assal formed CYwP Funds I, II, III, IV and V to provide growth capital through debt and equity investments in operating companies and high-yield real estate opportunities based in the continental United States. CYwP Funds seek diverse investments that not only provide quarterly distributions of interest or cash flow but also have the potential for significant capital appreciation.

CYwP Fund V has already made investments in Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel, Radford University Student Housing, and a few senior living properties, at special terms driven by the effects of Covid-19. In addition, two investments have been made in business networking group, Accelerent, along with multi-family development projects in Wilmington, MA, Aventura, FL, Wynwood, FL, Commerce City, CO, and Englewood, CO.

Assal has been investing for many years, in addition to his entrepreneurial endeavors. He is founder, chairman and CEO of Verasolve, a PR, marketing and branding firm, as well as the founder of The Moxie Award, which celebrates boldness in business among organizations in the DC area. He was founder, chairman and CEO of Multi-Media Holdings, Inc. prior to that, at which he grew capitalized billings to $400 million and managed a staff of 600 employees, before it was sold in 2000. He began his career during college, founding Personalities, Inc., which became the largest manufacturer and distributor of non-apparel licensed rock n’ roll merchandise, before selling the business in 1986 at the age of 25.
