The Benchmark for Private Real Estate
The NFI-ODCE Index (pronounced “odyssey” for short) is an index that has been used for over 40 years to track the performance of high-quality, “core” real estate assets. It is widely used by institutional investors as the benchmark for private real estate performance. Funds represented in the Index must meet tightly defined inclusion criteria to maintain integrity. *As of Q3 2023, the index features:
NFI-ODCE Index gross real estate
Built on a diversified core strategy
The ODCE Index features diversification throughout the U.S. with the four key types of institutional quality real estate.
Pent-up housing demand in the U.S. drives the economics of apartments. The ability to raise rents with renewals or re-leasing makes multifamily a potential inflation hedge.
Industrial properties include warehouses, distribution facilities and data centers. E-commerce and demand for fast shipping propel the economics of industrial real estate.
Retail properties range from grocery-anchored shopping centers to regional malls. Proactive owners can upgrade or re-purpose retail assets to enhance returns.
Historically, offices provided stable income through longer lease terms. Post-COVID, agile office owners must adapt for hybrid, work-from-home employment.

Inception date of the I shares is September 11, 2023. Inception date of Class A and Class Y shares is November 1, 2023.
The Fund currently offers Class A Shares, Class I Shares and Class Y Shares which will all be continuously offered at the Fund’s net asset value (“NAV”) per share, plus, in the case of Class A Shares, a maximum sales load of up to 5.75%, from which a dealer-manager fee of up to 0.75% of offering proceeds may also be paid. Holders of Class A Shares, Class I Shares, and Class Y Shares have equal rights and privileges with each other, except that Class I Shares and Class Y Shares do not pay a sales load or dealer manager fees. See “Ongoing Distribution and Servicing Fees” and “Summary of Fund Expenses” for information on servicing and distribution fees in the Prospectus.

The Accordant ODCE Index Fund (the “Fund”) was previously registered as the IDR Core Property Index Fund, Ltd. (the “Predecessor Fund”) The Fund’s investment adviser is Accordant Investments LLC( “Adviser”) and Fund’s sub-advised by IDR Investment Management LLC (“Sub-Adviser”). The Predecessor Fund was a quarterly valued closed-end tender offer fund only available to accredited investors. Pursuant to a proxy filed with SEC and a special shareholder meeting that occurred on August 31, 2023, the Predecessor Fund converted into the Fund which is a daily valued registered closed-end interval fund (“Conversion”). The Predecessor Fund previously charged a management fee of 40bps while the Fund now charges 60bps. Fund performance shown in this presentation is net of fees and for performance prior to September 11, 2023 reflects a 40bps management fee and for performance on and after September 11, 2023 reflects a 60bps management fee. The performance shown reflects a continuation of performance from the Predecessor Fund to the Fund. While the Fund has different investment adviser than the Predecessor Fund, the Fund’s portfolio management is substantially similar to the Predecessor Fund. The Conversion was a non-taxable event for existing shareholders.
Past Performance is No Guarantee of Future Results.
Investing in the Fund involves risks, including the risk that you may receive little or no return on your investment or that you may lose part or all of your investment. The Fund’s investment objective is to employ an indexing investment approach that seeks to track the NCREIF Fund Index – Open End Diversified Core Equity (the “NFI-ODCE Index”) on a net-of-fee basis while minimizing tracking error. There can be no assurance that the actual allocations will be effective in achieving the Fund’s investment objective or delivering positive returns. It is not possible to invest in an index. You cannot invest directly in an index and unmanaged indices do not reflect fees, expenses or sales charges.
The ability of the Fund to achieve its investment objective depends, in part, on the ability of the Adviser to allocate effectively the Fund’s assets across the various asset classes in which it invests and to select investments in each such asset class. There can be no assurance that the actual allocations will be effective in achieving the Fund’s investment objective or delivering positive returns. Limited liquidity is provided to shareholders only through the Fund’s quarterly repurchase offers for no less than 5% of the Fund’s shares outstanding at net asset value. There is no guarantee that shareholders will be able to sell all of the shares they desire in a quarterly repurchase offer. The first repurchase offer following the Conversion is expected to occur in February 2024.
An investment in shares represents an indirect investment in the securities owned by the Fund. The value of these securities, like other market investments, may move up or down, sometimes rapidly and unpredictably. The Fund is “non-diversified” under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and therefore may invest more than 5% of its total assets in the securities of one or more issuers. As such, changes in the financial condition or market value of a single issuer may cause a greater fluctuation in the Fund’s net asset value than in a “diversified” fund. The Fund is not intended to be a complete investment program. The Fund is subject to the risk that geopolitical and other similar events will disrupt the economy on a national or global level. For instance, war, terrorism, market manipulation, government defaults, government shutdowns, political changes or diplomatic developments, public health emergencies (such as the spread of infectious diseases, pandemics and epidemics) and natural/environmental disasters can all negatively impact the securities markets.
The Fund will concentrate its investments in real estate industry securities. The value of the Fund’s shares will be affected by factors affecting the value of real estate and the earnings of companies engaged in the real estate industry. These factors include, among others: (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; (ix) climate change; and (x) changes in interest rates. Many real estate companies utilize leverage, which increases investment risk and could adversely affect a company’s operations and market value in periods of rising interest rates. The value of securities of companies in the real estate industry may go through cycles of relative under-performance and over-performance in comparison to equity securities markets in general.
A significant portion of the Fund’s underlying investments are in private real estate investment funds managed by institutional investment managers (“Eligible Component Funds”). Investments in Eligible Component Funds may pose specific risks, including: such investments require the Fund to bear a pro rata share of the vehicles’ expenses, including management and performance fees; the Adviser and Sub-Adviser will have no control over investment decisions may by such vehicle; such vehicle may utilize financial leverage; such investments have limited liquidity; the valuation of such investment as of a specific date may vary from the actual sale price that may be obtained if such investment were sold to a third party.
Additional risks related to an investment in the Fund are set forth in the “Risk Factors” section of the prospectus, which include, but are not limited to the following: convertible securities risk; correlation risk; credit risk; fixed income risk; leverage risk; and risk of competition between underlying funds.
