Coastal Bend OZ Fund is happy to announce that we are officially a verified member of the Verivest Sponsor
Network! We are committed to trust and transparency, helping you invest your hard-earned money with peace of mind.

Verivest is a first-of-its-kind platform designed to bring greater trust and transparency to middle-market real estate
investing. They provide independent due diligence of sponsors, including background checks and, for many sponsors,
track record verification and ongoing investor capital monitoring. Verivest corroborates sponsor representations to help
investors more confidently find, assess, and choose the right sponsors and deals. Verivest does not sell or promote any
securities, provide any investment advice, or recommend any sponsors or deals.

Verified sponsors communicate their commitment to transparency through third-party verification and validation. To
become Verivest Verified, a sponsor’s principals must pass a background check, sign the Verivest Code of Conduct,
and pay a membership fee. To attain the next level, sponsors agree to have all their active opportunities
monitored on an ongoing basis to prove they are following the rules of the deal’s operating agreement and allocating
money how they said they would.
