“For decades, alternative investments have been the staple of independent broker-dealers and their registered representatives. More recently, wealth managers and RIAs have shown great interest in offering alternatives to their investors to create greater diversification, reduce correlation and increase returns,” said Louis Rogers, founder and co-chief executive officer of Capital Square. “Stuart Bahnmuller is a proven leader who will introduce the RIA community to Capital Square’s industry leading Delaware statutory trust/1031 exchange programs, opportunity zone funds, apartment REIT and development funds. This is the next evolution in Capital Square’s growth as we further expand our reach to RIAs and their clients.”

Prior to joining Capital Square, Bahnmuller served as senior vice president of RIA sales at a national real estate sponsor, where he was responsible for introducing DST/1031 exchange programs to RIAs nationally. Previously, Bahnmuller was vice president of East Coast sales at Platform Ventures, where he led capital raising efforts for DST/1031 programs and qualified opportunity zone funds. Before that, he served as regional vice president at Tortoise, where he was responsible for investment sales to RIAs, wire houses and independent broker-dealers.

“Registered investment advisors and their clients throughout the U.S. are increasingly embracing alternative investments and the benefits they can provide to properly balanced investment portfolios,” said James Brunger, chief sales officer. “RIAs are a growing component of our distribution network. The addition of Stuart Bahnmuller, a proven professional, will help accelerate our reach as we expand access to non-correlated real estate programs sponsored by Capital Square.”
