About Battle Monument Group

 Founded in 2014

We set out to build a fund tailored for Veterans and Industry Leading Professionals. 

We found that investing in stabilized, single-tenant properties, with investment-grade tenants, leads to consistent dividend yield. 

The result is a fund that’s easy to understand.
