Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund Risk Considerations

The inception date of the Fund’s Class A shares was 6/30/2014. As of May 31, 2019, the Fund’s load-waived Class A shares returned 7.14% (annualized) since inception and had a one year return of 7.32% (source: Morningstar Direct). The maximum sales charge is 5.75% for Class A shares and 4.25% for Class L shares. Class C shareholders may be subject to a contingent deferred sales charge equal to 1.00% of the original purchase price of Class C shares redeemed during the first 365 days after their purchase. Performance reflects the reinvestment of dividends and distributions. Due to financial statement adjustments, returns may differ. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results and investment returns and principal value of the Fund will fluctuate so that shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance data quoted. Visit www.griffincapital.com for current performance. As per the Fund’s prospectus dated February 1, 2019, the total expense ratio after fee waiver, reimbursement and recoupment is 2.11% for Class A, 2.86% for Class C, 1.86% for Class I, 2.35% for Class L, and 2.59% for Class M. The Fund has contractually agreed to waive its fees (including offering expenses, but excluding taxes, interest, brokerage commissions, acquired fund fees and expenses and extraordinary expenses) to the extent that they exceed 1.91% for Class A, 2.66% for Class C, 1.66% for Class I, 2.16% for Class L, and 2.41% for Class M until February 1, 2020. The Fund’s return does not reflect the deduction of all fees and if the Fund return reflected the deduction of such fees, the performance would be lower.

The Fund’s distribution policy is to make quarterly distributions to shareholders. A portion of the distribution includes a return of capital. Please refer to the Fund’s most recent Section 19(a) notice, available at www.griffincapital.com, and the Fund’s semi-annual or annual reports filed with the SEC for additional information regarding the composition of distributions. Shareholders should not assume that the source of a distribution from the Fund is net profit. Although such distributions are not currently taxable, such distributions will have the effect of lowering a shareholder’s tax basis in the shares which will result in a higher tax liability when the shares are sold, even if they have not increased in value, or, in fact, have lost value. Distributions are not guaranteed.

The Fund distribution rate is the amount, expressed as a percentage, a Fund investor would receive in distributions if the most recent Fund distribution stayed consistent going forward. It is calculated by annualizing the Fund’s most recent distribution. The percentage represents a single distribution from the Fund and does not represent the total return of the Fund.

The Fund will not invest in real estate directly, but, because the Fund will concentrate its investments in securities of REITs and other real estate industry issuers, its portfolio will be significantly impacted by the performance of the real estate market and may experience more volatility and be exposed to greater risk than a more diversified portfolio. The value of companies engaged in the real estate industry is affected by: (i) changes in general economic and market conditions; (ii) changes in the value of real estate properties; (iii) risks related to local economic conditions, overbuilding and increased competition; (iv) increases in property taxes and operating expenses; (v) changes in zoning laws; (vi) casualty and condemnation losses; (vii) variations in rental income, neighborhood values or the appeal of property to tenants; (viii) the availability of financing and (ix) changes in interest rates and leverage.

Investors in the Fund should understand that the NAV of the Fund will fluctuate, which may result in a loss of the principal amount invested. The Fund provides liquidity to shareholders quarterly between 5% and 25% of its outstanding shares at net asset value.

GRIFFIN CAPITAL RAISED AND ISSUED $1.6 BILLION IN INVESTOR CAPITAL IN 2018

El Segundo, Calif. (January 11, 2019) – Griffin Capital Company, LLC (“Griffin Capital”), a leading private investment firm and one of the nation’s premier alternative investment advisors, today announced the achievement of several significant milestones in 2018. The company raised and issued $1.6 billion* of investor capital in 2018, an increase of 10 percent over 2017. The company has raised $11.6 billion in investor equity capital inflows to its investment programs and funds since January 2012.

The company’s Institutional Access® interval funds made up the majority of the investor inflows for the year at $1.1 billion, of which $1.0 billion was raised for the Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate Fund. Griffin Institutional Access Real Estate fund also grew its assets under management to $2.8 billion as of December 31, 2018.

“We are extremely proud to have brought to market timely investment opportunities exhibiting strong performance, which resonates with investors,” said Mark Goldberg, CEO of Griffin Capital Securities. “As a firm, we are keenly focused on delivering investors superior risk-adjusted returns with less correlation and lower volatility relative to the traded markets.”

The company also announced in previous releases two significant milestones about its flagship REIT, Griffin Capital Essential Asset® REIT (“GCEAR”).

In December 2018, GCEAR and Griffin Capital Essential Asset REIT II, Inc. (“GCEAR II”) entered into a definitive agreement to merge in an all-stock transaction, creating a $4.75 billion, self-managed REIT, which generates significant benefits for shareholders, including substantial cost savings, increased operating efficiencies, and immediate accretion to earnings and cash flow. The merger will combine two highly complementary portfolios with similar construction and investment mandates, significantly increasing the size, scale, and diversification of the combined company.

In August 2018, GCEAR announced the execution of a $250 million purchase agreement for Perpetual Preferred Shares. The first tranche of the Series A Preferred Shares were purchased in their entirety by SHBNPP Global Professional Investment Type Private Real Estate Trust No. 13 (H), a trust sponsored by Hana Financial Investment, the sole bookrunner. The lead investor in the trust is NH Investment & Securities and Shinhan BNP Paribas Asset Management is the trust asset manager. “To issue a perpetual preferred share offering acquired in its entirety by Korean investors is groundbreaking and followed over two years of relationship building,” commented Kevin A. Shields, Chairman and CEO of Griffin Capital Company.

Mr. Shields, reflecting on 2018, added, “I could not be more pleased with our achievements in 2018. We have been guided by the same investment philosophy for more than 20 years: delivering significant value to our clients by maintaining a consistent focus on capital preservation and durable income through all market environments. We at Griffin Capital are excited about our prospects in 2019, and will maintain our steadfast commitment to innovation, discipline, foresight, and teamwork that brought us here today. We will continue to passionately pursue positive results for investors with the capital they entrust with us.”
